Lyrics

Today, we stood on the wall
We laughed at the sun, we laughed at the guns
We laughed at it all
And when they, they told us to go
We paid them no mind like every other time
But little did we know

Today, I looked for a sign
With flames in my hands
A line in the sand between yours and mine
And it came like fire from below
Your greed led the call, my flag had to fall
But little did you know

Another day, your truth will come
You’re gonna pay for what you’ve
Pay for what you’ve done
You’ll get what’s yours and face your crime
You’ll tell them, \"Give me back what’s mine\"
\"Give me back what’s mine!\"

I’d never been a coward, I’d never seen blood
You’d sold me an ocean, and I was lost in the flood
We were counting on a leader, we were driven by need
But couldn’t take temptation, and we were blinded by greed

You were steady as a sniper, we were waiting on a wire
So we never saw it coming when you ran from the fire
You can try intimidation and you can try to ignore
But when the time comes calling, yeah, you are gonna get yours

Another day, your truth will come
You’re gonna pay for what you’ve
Pay for what you’ve done
You’ll get what’s yours and face your crime
You’ll tell them \"Give me back what’s mine\"
\"Give me back what’s mine!\"

And so today, your truth has come
You’re gonna pay for what you’ve
Pay for what you’ve done
You’ll get what’s yours, you’re out of time
And you will give me back what’s mine
Give me back what’s mine!

Give me, give me back what’s mine!
Give me, give me back what’s mine!
What’s mine!
Give me, give me back what’s mine!
What’s mine! What’s mine!
Give me back what’s mine!

Today, we stood on the wall
We laughed at the sun, we laughed at the guns
We laughed at it all
And when they, they told us to go
We paid them no mind like every other time
But little did we know
