Security alerts, watch lists and refugees. Exploding cars in parking lots. Just like any other day. Safe here in front of the screen, you don't say nothin but you can't keep quiet. Preach your values, take care of your own, lock your doors and hide in your home.
Nobody gets close to you and if they do you're gonna fight it. It's an ignorant way of life and you wear it like a badge of pride.
Knives to head, Isis on the internet. Go Pro shoots the camera man's death. Devils flow through the border's holes. Demagogues prey on the weak and the lame. Either side pretty much the same. Just like any other day. Looking west or looking east the lone wolf shares the terrorists' heart. You hide from them and I hide from you makes no difference whether or not our fears come true.
Sooner or later the boots on the ground, the bullets fly, the missiles and drones. It's an ignorant way of life and we wear it like a badge of pride.
The sinners sin.
With God or without.
