Okay wrote this one, half from my depression from a break up and half from my being sick of how f****d the world is

When bullets tear through
More than just skin
And everything
Is a social poison
Death rips through the flesh
The blood and the bone
Crying won’t save you
When you’re alone

Flames leap from the eyes
Of the beaten and poor
Yet every day
They still need us more
As the society pushes
Us further away
We lose all our strength
Shrinking day by day

As the rivers run dry and the billows of smoke
Climb up to the sky to reach for new hope
Still they all fall down; they’ve been struck to their knees
To bow before vengeance, to break in the breeze

We find ourselves now; shattered, broken, alone
To weep in the shadows, to fear the unknown
We follow our spirits to find only tears
The struggle goes on even when the fog clears

The lies of our leaders
Drive us further in pain
And the Wars if the world
Push us to go insane
We fight for our causes
But what does it mean?
Are we fighting for war?
Or fighting for peace?

As the rivers run dry and the billows of smoke
Climb up to the sky to reach for new hope
Still they all fall down; they’ve been struck to their knees
To bow before vengeance, to break in the breeze

We find ourselves now; shattered, broken, alone
To weep in the shadows, to fear the unknown
We follow our spirits to find only tears
The struggle goes on even when the fog clears

The river runs dry! (The River Runs Dry)
The weak ones shall die! (The Weak Ones Shall Die)
To separate us! (To Separate Us)
From cold winter night! (From The Cold Winter Night)

As the rivers run dry and the billows of smoke
Climb up to the sky to reach for new hope
Still they all fall down; they’ve been struck to their knees
To bow before vengeance, to break in the breeze

We find ourselves now; shattered, broken, alone
To weep in the shadows, to fear the unknown
We follow our spirits to find only tears
The struggle goes on
Yeah the struggle goes on!
Still the struggle goes on!
Even when the fog clears

Thanks guys! Hope you liked it!

That part in what I'd like to think would be a "chorus" of some sort? You say "They've been struck their knees"... do you mean, struck to their knees?

Other than that, this song kicks ass, dude. Really. The wordplay and stuff is ****in' awesome..
