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 tell them give me back what's mine
Give me back what's mine

I had never been a coward 
I had never seen blood 
You had 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 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
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
