lyrics

Hey now.
Take a look around.
Look at all you’ve done,
all that you’ve torn down.

Hey there.
Citizens are scared.
Why don’t you think twice before throwing bombs in the air?

Hey now! Who’s listening?
My words are unscripted.
Hey now, open your eyes.
Hey now.
Hey now.
Get up and fight.

You’ve taken all that you can take from me
and I don’t need your sorry eyes to see.
I’m not a ghost
I’m in the flesh.
Guess I’m good at evading death.

I feel it like a throbbing in my brain.
I know who I am. We’re not the same.
I’m not the legend that I was.
I’m standing here a champion.

Hey now.
Take a look around.
Look at all the bodies that are scattered on the ground.

Hey there.
Citizens beware:
the people that you trust can soon become your worst nightmare.

Hey now! I’m listening.
Their message is cryptic.
Hey now, turn on the light.
Hey now.
Hey now.
Get up and fight.

You’ve turned me into something that I’m not.
I’m standing with a gun held on the spot.
Pull the trigger.
Who am I?
Redesign me. Let it fly.

My eyes are clear and I see farther now.
You put on quite a show, so take a bow.
I’m not the prodigy I was.
I’m standing here a champion.

Hey now! Who’s listening?
Their message is cryptic?
Hey now.
Hey now.
Hey now.
Fight now.

Hey now.
Hey now.
Hey now.
Hey now.

Hey now.
Hey now.
Hey now
Hey now!

Standing hand in hand. Take your best shot.
We’re taking back the world you took from us.
Hey now.
Break down.
We’re proud.
Fight now.

Bullets cannot kill immortal hearts.
You never had a prayer from the start.
(Hey now)
Can you hear?
(Hey now)
Losing fear.

Standing hand in hand. Take your best shot.
We’re taking back the world you took from us.
Hey now.
Break down.
We’re proud.
Fight now.

Legendary prodigy.
Fight with us we’ll set you free.

Hey now.
