Avenged Sevenfold — M.I.A. lyrics

Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise.
Living another day in disguise.
These feelings can't be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight, ohh tonight.

Ooooo...
Stand up and fight.

The fighting rages on and on, to challenge me you must be strong.
I walk your land but don't belong, two million soldiers can't be wrong.

It's no fun, but I've been here before.
I'm far from home and I'm fighting your war.
(Not the way I pictured this, I wanted better things)
Some are scared others killing for fun, I shot a mother right in front of her son.
(Take this from my conscienceness and please erase my dreams)

Fight for honor, fight for your life.
Pray to god that our side is right.
And though we won I still may lose, until I make it home to you.
I see our mothers filled with tears, grew up so fast where did those years go?
Memories won't let you cry, unless I don't return tonight.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/avenged-sevenfold-mia-lyrics.html ]
So many soldiers on the other side, I take their life so they can't take mine.
(Scared to make it out alive now murders all I know.)
Nobody tells me all the reasons were here, I have my weapon so there's nothing to fear.
(Another day another life but nothing real to show for.)

Fight for honor, fight for your life.
Pray to god that our side is right.
And though we won I still may lose, until I make it home to you.
I see our mothers filled with tears, grew up so fast where did those years go?
Memories won't let you cry, unless I don't return tonight.

Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise.
Living another day in disguise.
These feelings can't be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight.

Watching the death toll rise wondering how I'm alive.
Strangers blood on my hands, shot all I can.
There were no silent nights watching your brothers all die
To destroy all their plans with no thought of me. (No thought of me)
No thought of me.

Whoaaaa...
We walk the city lonely, memories that haunt are passing by,
A murderer walks your streets tonight.
Forgive me for my crimes.
Don't forget that I was so young, fought so scared.
In the name of God and Country.
