Been so many words, so much to say
Words are not enough to keep the guns at bay
Some live in fear, some do not
Some gamble everything on who gets the final shot

Oh, don't talk to me of love
It's obvious it's not enough
Annihilation kill 'em all
Capitulation watch the mighty fall
The road to glory is lined in red
And though the reason now is gone
The battle rages on

Was it love or hate that got here first?
Hate's a habit, it's hard to shake the curse
Kill to live, and live to die
Human nature you let the strong survive

Oh don't talk to me of love
Be serious, it's not enough
Annihilation kill 'em all
Capitulation watch the mighty fall
The road to glory is lined in red
And though the reason now is gone
The battle rages on
