The Knife lyrics

Tell me my life is about to begin, tell me that I am a hero
Promise me all of your violent dreams, light up your body with anger
Now, in this ugly world, it is time to destroy all this evil
Now, when I give the word get ready to fight for your freedom, now

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies that have spread like disease through our minds
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness to all who our love now deserve
Some of you are going to die
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide

I'll give you the names of those you must kill all must die with their children
Carry their heads to the palace of old hang them high, let the blood flow
Now, in this ugly world break all the chains around us
Now, the crusade has begun give us a land fit for heroes, now

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies that have spread like disease through our minds
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness to all who our love now deserve
Some of you are going to die
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide

We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom
We are only wanting freedom

We have won
Some of you are going to die
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide
