LyricsEdit

    People have round shoulders from fairing heavy loads
    And the soldiers liberate them, laying mines along their roads
    Sorrow paid for valor is too much to recall
    Of the countless corpses piled up along the Wailing Wall
    
    Melting down all metals, turning plows and shears to swords
    Shun words of the Bible, we need implements of war
    Chalklines and red puddles of those who have been slain
    Destiny, that crooked schemer, says the dead shall rise again
    
    Where do we go from here?
    And should we really care?
    The end is finally here
    God have mercy!
    
    Now we've rewritten history
    The one thing we've found out
    Sweet taste of vindication
    It turns to ashes in your mouth
    
    Where do we go from here?
    And should we really care?
    The end is finally here
    God have mercy!
    
    If you're fighting to live
    It's O.K. to die!
    The answer to your question is
    "Welcome to tomorrow!"
    
    Where do we go from here?
    God have mercy!
    
    Where do we go from here?
    And should we really care?
    The end is finally here
    God have mercy!
    Mercy!
