M.I.A. (Avenged Sevenfold)

Staring at the carnage Praying that the sun would never rise Living another day in disguise These feelings can't be right Lend me your courage to stand up and fight on tonight Stand up and fight Now fighting rages on and on To challenge me, you must be strong I walk your land but don't belong Two million soldiers can't be wrong It's no fun but I've been here before I'm far from home and I'm fighting your war Not the way I pictured this I wanted better things Some are scared, others killing for fun I shot a mother right in front of her son Take this from my consciousness And please erase my dreams Fight for honor, fight for your life Pray to God that our side is right Know we won, I still may lose Until I make it home to you I see our mothers filled with tears Grew up so fast, where did those years go? Memories won't let you cry Unless I don't return tonight So many soldiers on the other side I take their lives so they can't take mine Scared to make it out alive now Murder's all I know Nobody tells me all the reasons we're here I have my weapon, so there's nothing to fear Another day, another life But nothing real to show for Fight for honor, fight for your life Pray to God that our side is right Know we won, I still may lose Until I make it home to you I see our mothers filled with tears Grew up so fast, where did those years go? Memories won't let you cry Unless I don't return tonight Staring at the carnage Praying that the sun would never rise Living another day in disguise These feelings can't be right Lend me your courage, stand up and fight Watching the death toll rise Wondering how I'm alive Stranger's blood on my hands, shot all I can There were no silent nights Watching your brothers all die To destroy all their plans with no thought of me No thought of me, no thought of me Walk the city lonely Memories that haunt are passing by A murderer walks your streets tonight Forgive me for my crimes Don't forget that I was so young Fought so scared in the name of God and country
