That was all I got and now you got me

All I ever really wanted was to take the blame
I will go down in history and not down in flames
Meningitis,
I will survive this,
Dry sockets and a schizophrenic crisis
The time of the nine has begun
Get out of the way or you will suffer as one

This is so typical,
Apocalyptical,
Hanging on abysmal release,
Jesus,
I don't need this,
Don't wanna be this,
Icon in the making,
My hands are ****ing shaking

What if god doesn't care?
What if god doesn't care?

[Bridge]
Remember,
Surrender,
The time is now
Continue,
We're in you,
And we will burn your cities down

[Chorus]
America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

What if god doesn't care?
What if god doesn't care?

[Chorus]

Down,

We will burn your cities down

Feed the hungry, feed them ****
Feed them bones and politics
You wanna revolutionize?
Be specific and believe your eyes
Start a war in another backyard
And we'll destroy your house of cards
Give me a minute and I'll change your mind
Give me a bullet and I'll change your life

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

We will burn your cities down

America, what if "god" doesn't care?
