Walk a mile in their shoes.


Wake up to the anarchy, Loved ones have fallen down
Their bodies are what’s left, Lying upon the ground

See the terror all around and wonder is it cause of you
Take a closer look and see it for yourself
What is this what happened what did you do
Is this real or are you in hell?
Don’t put a face or call it by its name
No matter what the hell it has been through
Don’t you even think about its pain
You were dead and now it will be too

Before you start to judge, Step back and see yourself
Now tell me what you’ve done, Saving us from this hell

Repeat pre-chorus and Chorus
Leave the dead alone
With the living you don’t have to save them
They don’t matter
You can keep on trying but you’ll never live again
This is not your family
Save them from the horrors that they are bound to see
Make your choice to save their lives
Or you can turn them, show them what it’s like
Repeat chorus
Wake up, to the anarchy
Loved ones, have fallen down
