Rise Against- Survivor Guilt Lyrics

(“What are you talking about? America isn’t going to be destroyed.”
“Never?
Rome was destroyed, Greece was destroyed, Persia was destroyed, Spain was destroyed.
All great countries are destroyed. Why not yours?
How much longer do you really think your own country will last?
Forever?”)

Block the entrances, close the doors
Seal the exits because 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 folded 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 light
In return I lost my life
What purpose does this serve?

The cowards preach on pedestals
With words of courage and resolve
But one thing that will fuck them all
Is freedom isn’t free

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

I’m not official in the way
Are we so easily deceived?
They carry on

(“You’re a shameful opportunist! what you don’t understand is that it’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
“you have it backwards. it’s better to live on your feet than to die on your knees. I know”)

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?
