Where sat the fire expired the killers
Hired then to finish the job
"Not a moment to spare! Not a moment to spare!"
Cried the flames that touched the musket

There is no epidemic here, no epidemic here
Just a law to keep the richest alive

A rain of bullets from the sky went toe-to-toe
With arrows straight from the woods

And then would fall a snow that would grow and
Surely know that these wars come like the sun

The lesson's depression became the mention
That the thieves passed on
Of the fires they would train and
Stamp out in the early dawn

If there's a war at our front door, what makes
The castle any harder to storm?
