  • These martyrs seek no adoration
    No promises of God's salvation
    They kicked the ladder from beneath their feet
    They hung the heroes. They hung the heroes

    You've got to watch your back
    You've got to swallow fear
    Cover your tracks, or you might disappear
    They found the words to speak unspeakable things
    And they struck the air from the chests of kings

    These martyrs seek no adoration
    No promises of God's salvation
    They kicked the ladder from beneath their feet
    They hung the heroes. They hung the heroes

    If you were caught between the devil and the deep blue sea
    Would you run and hide, or stand for what you believe?
    Maybe Orwell was right all along
    They think this spells the end, it's only just begun

    These martyrs seek no adoration
    No promises of God's salvation
    They kicked the ladder from beneath their feet
    They hung the heroes. They hung the heroes

    If you find your feet, you can eclipse the sun
    Swear that you won't forget
    Swear that you won't forget

    If you find your feet, you can eclipse the sun
    Swear that you won't forget
    Swear that you won't forget

    Tell the rats to get back in the gutter
    We'll be watching, we're always watching

    You try to stamp them out, you'll only fan the flames
    This is for all the snakes. Fuck you
    So hold your forked tongue
    You've got us spitting nails
    I'm gonna to say it straight. Fuck you

    If you find your feet, you can eclipse the sun
    Swear that you won't forget
    If you find your feet, you can eclipse the sun
    They think this spells the end, it's only just begun Writer/s: ALEX ANTHONY DEAN, DANIEL JOSEPH SEARLE, SAMUEL DAVID CARTER, THOMAS DUNCAN SEARLE
