The catalysts have come inside and left us for dead
We’re trying to make some sense of all the things that they said
Stay inside if safety is but all you desire
Me I need to be alone in the line of fire

Man learns his lesson and he's coming for more While teacher smiles and drops another bomb for us all
Why are they still coming in and killing our friends?
On the floor and duck your head, this night will never end

And I wanna kill but I don't want to take
And I wanna kill but not for killing's sake
And I want to be protected away
From all the things that they’ll say

My friends have gone, I’m cold and never felt so alone
I’m thinking of the past and all the people I’ve known
I know it’s wrong but who can draw a line in the sand?
Not those who even dare to cross the man in command

The job is done, you’ve got your guns now lay them all down
Your enemy is lying in the frozen ground
You don’t know his name and there’s no way he knows yours
And nobody remembers what the killing is for

I wanna kill but I don’t want to take etc….
