Soen – Antagonist Lyrics

For it's part of our kin we refuse to relieve and condemn to exile
[Chorus 1]
Fire up your guns
To honor the ones
Who walk on the edge of the light to follow their cause
Fire up your guns
Defying the kings
For the word that they preach is the wound that is making us bleed
Fire up your guns [Verse 1]
With the rejects and lonely, I blend
With the beggars and junkies I welcome the pain
Of a life as a target of blame
For the outcast who wouldn't align
With the ruthless unfairness that rules on our time
For the wolves, driven out by the lambs
You're mistaking the crook for the honest
While you're building your homes far away from us
Raising walls to keep us on the outside
Of your meaningless life
[Chorus 1]
Fire up your guns
To honor the ones
Who walk on the edge of the light to follow their cause
Fire up your guns
Defying the kings
For the word that they preach is the wound that is making us bleed
[Verse 2]
I break my bread with the thieves
I share my wine with the villain you fear
To be cursed by the ones you revere
The weak and the bullied we are
The tyrant is feeding us crumbs from his hand
Celebrate a disheartening life
[Bridge]
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
[Verse 3]
Dishonesty cracks in the light
Necessity forces the proud to be humble
Failure in life purifies
Dependency dampens the wild
Inequity weighs down the motion of progress
Life isn't just to survive
[Chorus 2]
Fire up your guns
Light up the flame and they will hear
Let anger be the voice that speaks
[Solo]
[Verse 3]
Born as a shade in the dark
Like a stain of shame on the flag of our cultural pride
Are we all
Unaware of our loss?
