(Verse)
We took the highway till the road went black
We marked Truth Or Consequences on our map
A voice drifted up from the radio
We saw the voice from long ago

(Chorus)
Who'll be the last to die for our mistakes?
The last to die for our mistakes
Whose blood will spill? Whose heart will break?
Who'll be the last to die for a mistake?

(Verse)
The kids asleep in the backseat
We're just countin' the miles, you and me
We don't measure the blood we've drawn anymore
We just stack the bodies outside the door

(Chorus)
Who'll be the last to die for our mistakes?
The last to die for our mistakes
Whose blood will spill? Whose heart will break?
Who'll be the last to die for a mistake?

(Verse)
The sun sets in flames as the city burns
Another day gone down as the evening turns
And I hold you here in my heart
As things fall apart

(Bridge)
A downtown window flushed with light
And faces of the dead at five
I see a martyr's silent eyes
Petition the drivers as we pass by

(Chorus)
Who'll be the last to die for our mistakes?
The last to die for our mistakes
Whose blood will spill? Whose heart will break?
Who'll be the last to die for a mistake?

(Verse)
Who'll be the last to die for our mistakes?
The last to die for our mistakes
Tyrants and kings both live the same fate
Strung up at your city gates
And you're the last to die for our mistakes
