I was younger than you are now
When I was given my first command
I led my men straight into a massacre
I witnessed their deaths firsthand
I made every mistake
And felt the shame rise in me
And even now I lie awake

Knowing history has its eyes on me (whoa)

History has its eyes on me	
Whoa
Whoa
Yeah

Let me tell you what I wish I’d known
When I was young and dreamed of glory
You have no control

Who lives, who dies, who tells your story

I know that we can win
I know that greatness lies in you
But remember from here on in

History has its eyes on you 

Whoa
Whoa
History has its eyes on you
