RISE AGAINST - Survivor Guilt Lyrics

''What are you talking about? America's not gonna be destroyed! ''
''Never? Rome was destroyed, Greece was destroyed, Persia was destroyed. Spain was destroyed. All great countries are destroyed. Why not yours? How much longer do you think your country will last? Forever?''

Block the entrances, close the doors
Seal the exits 'cause this is war
All give some, some give all
But for what? I wanna know

Carry on, don't mind me.
All I gave was everything!
And yet you ask me for more
Fought your fight, bought your lie
And in return I lost my life
What purpose does this serve?

A fallen flag, a purple heart
A family all but torn apart!
And I fought with courage to preserve
Not my way of life but yours!

Carry on, don't mind me.
All I gave was everything!
And yet you ask me for more
Fought your fight, bought your lie
And in return I lost my life
What purpose does this serve?

The cowards preach on pedestals
With words of courage and resolve
But one thing that will fuck them all
Is that freedom isn't free
We send our daughters and our sons
To deserts in the burning suns
Sacrificial slaughtering to fill the pockets of the weak

And no official end, no way
Are we so easily dissuade?

(They carry on)

"You shameful opportunist. What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet then to live on your knees"
"You have it backwards. it's better to live on your feet then to die on your knees"

Don't carry on, just walk away
How many more send to their graves?
In this lesson ignored?
I fought your fight, bought your lie
And in return I lost my life
What purpose does this serve?
What purpose did I serve?
