Raise Your Banner

  • Blood for freedom

    You're pushing me into the corner
    Don't fight with me, don't fight with me, don't fight with me
    I'm crowning no man for his armour or Rhapsody
    For what I see and what I feel

    Wake up
    I'm defying you, seeing right through you once I believed in you
    Wake up
    Feel what's coming deep within we all know

    Blood for freedom
    So raise your banner, fight your war
    Break the silence, no remorse
    Won't die within
    Blood for freedom
    Raise your banner, won't you come
    Fight the venom, the good die young
    Won't die within

    I'm feeling the eyes of the fallen, they're watching me
    They make me see, they make me see
    I'm feeling the pain how you break them and make them bleed
    You make them bleed, you make them bleed

    Wake up
    I'm defying you, seeing right through you once I believed in you
    Wake up
    Feel what's coming deep within we all know
    The way that you torment me
    The way that you challenge me
    The way that you make me bleed

    Blood for freedom
    So raise your banner, fight your war
    Break the silence, no remorse
    Won't die within
    Blood for freedom
    Raise your banner, won't you come
    Fight the venom, the good die young
    Won't die within

    Blood for freedom
    So raise your banner, fight your war
    Break the silence, no remorse
    Won't die within
    Blood for freedom
    Raise your banner, won't you come
    Fight the venom, the good die young
    Won't die within

    When gods are failing
    They put all heaven in a rage
    We're on our own
    Our tears keep falling
    They're setting fire to the flame
