Testo the knife - genesis

Tell me my life is about to begin

Tell me that I am a hero


Promise me all of your violent dreams

Light up your body with anger.

Now
in this ugly world

it is time to destroy this evil.

Now
when I give the word

are you ready to fight for your freedom?

Now -



Stand up and fight
for you know we are right

We must strike at the lies

That have spread like disease through our minds.

Soon we'll have power
every soldier will rest

And we'll spread out our kindness

To all who our love now deserve.

Some of you are going to die -

Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide.



I'll give you the names of those you must kill


All must die with their children.

Carry their heads to the palace of old

/>
Have them on stakes let the blood flow.

Now
in this hate-filled world

we must break all the chains that have bound us.

Now
the crusade has begun

we shall make this a land fit for heroes.



Stand up and fight
for you know we are right

We are only wanting freedom.

Some of you are going to die


Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide.
