  • Can you hear the war-cry?

    The adrenaline bursts through the riverbanks
    Welcome to the skirmish (I can't feel my legs)
    Give me morphine, give me morphine, give me more!

    No doubt
    This is a tragedy for all
    (But it ain't over yet)
    Head's up and thank fuck you're still alive!

    Still air in my lungs
    Still blood in my veins
    (We're part of the last garrison)
    Still alive
    Still air in my lungs
    Still blood in my veins
    (We're part of the last garrison)

    I wanna lie here and soak up the sun
    But do not alight here, you cannot outrun
    "this could be the end" he said, "the end my child"
    So I made good use of my face and I smiled

    Can you hear the war-cry?

    The epinephrine plows through the barriers
    Welcome to the skirmish (I can't feel my arms!)
    Give me opium, give me opium, give me help!

    No doubt
    This is a tragedy for all
    (But it ain't over yet)
    Head's up and thank fuck you're still alive!

    Still air in my lungs
    Still blood in my veins
    (We're part of the last garrison)
    Still alive
    Still air in my lungs
    Still blood in my veins
    (We're part of the last garrison)

    I wanna lie here and soak up the sun
    But do not alight here, you cannot outrun
    "this could be the end" he said, "the end my child"
    So I made good use of my face and I smiled

    Let's toast to the fact we got this far
    Let's toast to the fact we got this far

    The adrenaline bursts through the riverbanks welcome to the skirmish)
    The epinephrine plows through the barriers welcome to the skirmish
    The adrenaline bursts through the riverbanks welcome to the skirmish)

    Head's up and thank fuck you're still alive!

    Still air in my lungs
    Still blood in my veins
    (We're part of the last garrison)
    Still alive
    Still air in my lungs
    Still blood in my veins
    (We're part of the last garrison)

    Head's up and thank fuck you're still alive!

    Still air in my lungs
    Still blood in my veins
    (We're part of the last garrison)
    You're still alive
    Still air in my lungs
    Still blood in my veins
    (We're part of the last garrison)
