  • It was a blood-red summer
    One I can't forget
    When you took the one thing, all in this world I had left

    For I will remember
    Until the end of time
    If it takes forever
    Retribution will be mine

    This I know
    In the end
    But I wanted you to know
    That I won't forget
    No

    In the field you hear us crying
    For the ones we lost and loved
    Underneath the savage sun

    How many killing seasons
    Can you justify?
    How many dead and bleeding
    Only for an Ivory lie?

    Was it for the money?
    Or was it for the thrill?
    If I can have my way no
    Yours would be the blood I'd spill

    But I wont, not today
    'Cause revenge is best served cold
    This I know, so I wait
    Oh

    In the field you hear us crying
    For the ones we lost and loved, oh
    'Cause the evil never stops
    So we keep dying
    Underneath the savage sun
    Underneath the savage sun

    How many bleeding and how many die?
    All for the greed of an Ivory lie
    When will they see what they've done is a lie
    Blood that they spill could not be justified
    How many bleeding and how many die?
    Blood that they spill could not be justified

    In the field you hear us crying
    For the ones we lost and loved, oh
    'Cause our evil never stops till we keep dying
    Underneath the savage sun
