LyricsEdit

Feelin' like it's over
Feelin' like there's no love
Feelin' like it's not easy
Breathin' life in the dust

On a countdown to zero
Take a ride on the nightmare machine
There ain't gonna be heroes
There ain't gonna be anything
Oh, here it comes, here comes the light
Here it comes, hell in the night
Here it comes, here comes the light
When we all fall down

When we walk into silence
When we shadow the sun
When we surrender to violence
Oh, then the damage is done
Put away that gun

I don't want to be there
I don't want to be anywhere
Here it comes, here comes the light
Here it comes, hell in the night
Here it comes, here comes the light
That's right

We're fightin' for the gods of war
But what the hell we fightin' for?
We're fightin' with the gods of war
But I'm a rebel
And I ain't gonna fight no more, no way

On a countdown to zero
Take a ride on the nightmare machine
There ain't gonna be heroes
Woah, There ain't gonna be anything, no
Here it comes, here comes the light
Here it comes, hell in the night
Here it comes, here comes the light
That's right

We're fightin' for the gods of war
But what the hell we fightin' for?
We're fightin' with the gods of war
And I ain't gonna fight no more
(Stop fighting for the gods of war)
We're fightin' for the gods of war
But what the hell we fightin' for?
(What the hell we fightin' for?)
We're fightin' with the gods of war
Heavy
