I want to live for God and country 
I want to give for God and country 

It's too late for some
It's too late for what you've done
I can't help what I divide in you

For God and country I'll fight 
For God and country I'll die
For God and country my soul is so alive 
My soul is so alive 
Lay down your arms to me
Lay down your arms for God and country 

I want to live where no one's watching my way home
I want to give until I'm bursting with unknown 

It's too late for some
It's too late for everyone 
I can't help what I destroy in you

Well who needs this anymore?
C'mon make it so
That's when they build their cross of death 
You won't build your own

It's time to wake up!
It's time to wake up for good
I can't help you though I should 

For God and country we'll fight 
For God and country we'll die
For God and country my soul is so alive 
My soul is so alive 
Lay down your arms to me
Lay down your arms for God and country 

You can't deny God and country 
We're fighting for our lives 
You can't deny God and country 
Our souls are so aligned 
In this time of God and country 
We'll take you on our side
It's alright 

My soul is so alive 
With God and night 
With God and country 
My soul is so alive
