What We're Fighting For

This song is by Take It Back! and appears on the album Atrocities (2009).

Your story's been set, and I regret that I have been portrayed as a villain in your God forsaking crimes.
If the fault is all mine then can someone tell me why that there's no blood on my hands now...
'Cause this song is being sung.
Why are we looked down upon for not being another one to fall in line.
My convictions lead me, so this won't be a waste of time.
For me this is exactly where I need to be.
Right now... So why does a difference in opinion mean that I am wrong?
Clear eyes, clean heart, and a mind that won't forget where we came from...
It's not that you were wrong, but your life's not for me.
Your story's been set, and I regret that I have been portrayed as a villain in your God forsaking crimes.
If the fault is all mine then can someone tell me why I'm still breathing.
And I'm sorry but I did not choose your life.
There's nothing I can say, but I will show you these words aren't in vain.
My heart's still the same and that's why I, and that's why I... I will love the unloved.
I will cherish the hated ones.
I will welcome the shunned, with my sweat and my blood.
And if we burn down the walls of this world, then we will burn through the hearts of the still.
And if I must stand alone, then I will stand with my head held high...
'Cause it seems to me like we're two enemies, fighting on the same side.
Can't you see this is all a means to an end...
And I hope that one day we can live in harmony, unified in the same goal, 'cause now is not the time for us to draw the lines in the sand to decide which side we're fighting for.
