Start the countdown
Toll the guns
Don't worry, my people
Your will be done
Prepare to see a child's face on enemy lines
Red poppies line the grass
How could peace ever last?

We're animals, it's what we do

Seek! Deceive!
Terrify!
Kill! Destroy!
It's a never-ending circle of hate

You and I aren't
meant to be
You believe in the wrong path so you must die
A child weeps in their lonely bed to see his face
Death kisses Mother Earth
Your blood seeps in the dirt

Human nature, it's what we do

Seek! Deceive!
Terrify!
Kill! Destroy!
It's a never-ending circle of hate
Never-ending, forever and ever and ever an ever
