covering fire lyrics – havok

praying i’m not the next one at the front of the line
ghastly voices telling me i have to stay alive
i cannot remember one day i didn’t kill
their weakening faces haunt me forever, still
[chorus:]
piercing through the flesh, tearing the wounds open more
cutting them down, one by one
consequences are for those who do not reign supreme
killing for life i scream, “covering fire!”
victims lie dead, shot to the head, spitting blood back in their face
gathering strength to make memories fade
of the fabled master race
peace: a part of the future
war: a thing of the past
can this be reality…
or just a favor no man can ask?
[chorus:]
piercing through the flesh, tearing the wounds open more
cutting them down, one by one
consequences are for those who do not reign supreme
killing for life i scream, “covering fire!”
glad to be the last one at the back of the line
ghastly voices telling me i had to stay alive
i cannot remember one day i didn’t kill
their weakening faces haunt me forever, still
[chorus:]
piercing through the flesh, tearing the wounds open more
cutting them down, one by one
consequences are for those who do not reign supreme
killing for life i scream, “covering fire!”
