Code Name: Raven

Maybe you'll see me on the evening news
Maybe you'll see me with a bag over my head
If that's the case then I've met my doom
If that's the case then my comrades are dead

And I don't hate my enemy
I hate the cloud he's brought over my land
There's no virtue in killing a man
Neither is there virtue in being afraid to stand

But I saw the black coats forming lines
They hit our beaches running
We're on our knees but not to pray

You're the only reason I stay in this coward's melee
I'd rather die than live without mercy and love
Sing while the city decays, we'd rather go up in flames
Lest we betray the names of dignity and love

--House Of Heroes, Code Name: Raven
