  • The kids in the hundreds tomorrow
    Will march through the door
    They're fighting someone else's war
    They'll have so many stories to tell
    In exchange for a hero's farewell

    I wish I could
    I wish I could make you return
    And what if i'll never discern
    As you walk to the toll of the bell
    You'll be fighting for our heaven with hell

    And you don't understand
    Why no one else can see
    Your blood on me
    And my blood on you
    But to make you bleed
    The only thing I wouldn't do

    And you know heroes aren't meant to survive
    So much harder to love when alive
    Walk with the devil in your head
    You would think you were better off dead

    Where can you go?
    We fight we earn
    We never learn
    And through it all
    The hero falls

    I wish there was a way
    To give you a hand to hold
    You don't have to die in your glory
    To never grow old Writer/s: JACK MILAS, MICHAEL HOLBROOK PENNIMAN, NICHOLAS GEORGE LITTLEMORE, OLI CHANG

  • Swit Chill from CebuI think Mika has a good heart because he listened to the driver when the driver was telling his story to someone he didn't know.
