Survivor Guilt Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Block the entrances, close the doors
Seal the exits, 'cause this is war
All gave some, some gave all
But for what? I wanna know

Carry on, don't mind me
All I gave was everything
And yet you ask me for more

Fought your fight, bought your lies
In return I lost my life
What purpose does this serve?

A fallen flag, a purple heart
A family all but torn apart
And I fought with courage to preserve
Not my way of life but yours

Carry on, don't mind me
All I gave was everything
And yet you ask me for more

Fought your fight, bought your lies
In return I lost my life
What purpose does this serve?

The cowards preach from pedestals
With words like "courage," and "resolve,"
But what they meant was "Fuck 'em all
'Cause freedom isn't free"

They send our daughters and our sons
Deserts under burning sons
Sacrificial slaughtering
To fill the pockets of the weak

An artificial enemy
Are we so easily deceived?

They carry on

Don't carry on, just walk away
How many more sent to their graves
In this lesson ignored?

I fought your fight, bought your lie
In return I lost my life
What purpose does this serve?
What purpose did I serve?
