Tonight's the night I will remember
Maybe for the rest of my life
We came to fight, not surrender (to fight, to fight)
It began tonight, tonight

Around me friends lay smashed and broken
Scattered on the ground
Look up ahead, hear the screaming
Victims' cries are drowned

Same old voices in my head
Feeling that I'm newly born
Don't ask me, I don't know a thing
Dress me, dress me in my uniform

I really wanna know
Come on give me an answer (an answer, answer)
I really wanna know (know, know, know)

Where there was hope there's now despair
Feelings that I'm torn and frayed
Desperation everywhere
Once I thought we had it made

Memories come floodin' back
Wish that I could be back home
Instead my dreams are under attack (attack, attack)
Take me, make me

I really wanna know
Come on give me an answer
I really wanna know
Come on give me an answer

I really wanna know
Come on give me an answer
What are we fightin' for
Come on give me an answer
Don't you know

The sound of laughter filled the schoolyard
They turned us out assembly line
I remember the words be seen not heard
Please, give me a chance to change my mind (my mind, mind)

I really wanna know
Come on give me an answer (an answer, an answer)
Come on give me an answer
Come on give me an answer

I really wanna know
Come on give me an answer
What are we fightin' for
Come on give me an answer

I really wanna know
I really want to know
I really want to know
I really want to know, ooh yeah

I really wanna know
I wanna know
I really wanna know
I really wanna know

What are we fightin' for
What are we fightin' for
