Spread the love

“Code Name: Raven” from The End Is Not the End by House Of Heroes. Released: 2008. Track 7. Genre: Rock.

Maybe you’ll see me on the evening news
Maybe you’ll see me with a bag over my head
If that’s the case, then I’ve met my doom
If that’s the case, then my comrades are dead
And I don’t hate my enemy
I hate the cloud he’s brought over my land
There’s no virtue in killing a man
Neither is there virtue in being afraid to stand
But I saw the black coats forming lines
They hit our beaches running
We’re on our knees but not to pray
You’re the only reason I stayed
In this coward’s melee
I’d rather die than live without mercy and love
Sing while the city decays
We’d rather go up in flames
Lest we betray thy names of dignity and love
You can’t change the course, our fate’s sealed long ago
But hope is not lost
Code name Corbeau
We trade their secrets at cost for our lives
The panzer is strong, the raven is wise
I tune my ears to the BBC
I can hear them, they can’t hear me
I long to forget all the horrors I’ve seen
I live like a ghost
I’ll die with the free
Traitors and turncoats turned aside
Traitors who slip, sink
They’re on their knees but just to beg
You’re the only reason I stayed
In this coward’s melee
I’d rather die than live without mercy and love
Sing while the city decays
We’d rather go up in flames
Lest we betray thy names of dignity and love
Inside the fuselage
Valiant young soldiers singing songs
“Fear not my downcast brothers
We are the strong arm of the law
By land and air and sea
On wings of destiny we ride”
Sing while the city decays
Sing while we go up in flames
You’re the only reason I stayed
In this coward’s melee
I’d rather die than live without mercy and love
Sing while the city decays
We’d rather go up in flames
Lest we betray thy names of dignity and love
I’m on your side until my body drains of blood
Lest we betray thy names of dignity and love
I’m on your side until my body drains of blood
