lyrics

Incoming they yelled from a distance
I see our enemy
They’re marching straight and strong for my heart to strike
And leave me there to bleed
It’s do or die in the arena of spirituality
This is what we trained for so give em’ hell men
No we’ll never leave
Then they opened fire on me
Just for being born and living here, this the penalty
They opened fire on me
And I quickly died, thank God
Now I can finally breathe
Arrest and press against the head
The sweet sound of understanding
We wrestled there in the dark until the morning came
Oh Father find me where I falter
Take me there again
We hope and pray it won’t come to this
But we know that it may

& I recall it comin back again
oh how I hate you now my old friend
that pride that pride my greatest sin

And they opened fire on me
Just for being born and living here, this the penalty
They opened fire on me
And I quickly died, thank God
Now I can finally breathe
