This Means War

Album: Here and Now (2011)
  • To line up to the ring
    For a battle that you can't win
    Swing as hard as you can swing
    It will still mean nothing
    Should've seen it coming
    It had to happen sometime
    But you went and brought a knife
    To an all out gunfight

    And the only thing to save
    Is the banner that you wave
    To be wrapped around your grave

    You've gone too far, who do you think you are
    Is this what you came for, well this means war

    Say anything you want
    But talk will get you nowhere
    The only thing you brought is psychological warfare
    Well there's no getting off
    And now you got to wonder
    Who will dig you out when you're six feet under

    And the only thing to save
    Is the banner that you wave
    To be wrapped around your grave

    You've gone too far, who do you think you are
    Is this what you came for, well this means war

    And the only thing to save
    Is the banner that you wave
    To be wrapped around your grave

    You've gone too far, who do you think you are
    Is this what you came for, well this means war
