lyrics

we are not here to make amends
we will fight until we win
we've got your daughters in our sites
if they allow, we’ll teach them their rights

but you've got to make amends
with yourself and all your friends
your allies will keep running
if you abstract them as enemies

if you don’t know why, get out of the way
tomorrow will be longer than today
will you make a mess knowing what’s at stake?
history’s a nightmare in which we will awake

it doesn’t mean anything when it means nothing
no one offered to help you sing
but what choices remain for you?
when things get ugly we will eat our own news

there's a silence in your history
but is that better than the pain
of fighting with your backs
facing a zero-sum game?

because you've got to make amends
with yourself and all your friends
your allies will keep running
you might forget who you should hit
