NIGHTWISH


10th Man Down Lyrics

Today I killed, he was just a boy.
Eight before him, I knew them all.
In the fields a dying oath;
I'd kill them all to save my own.

Cut me free, bleed with me, oh no.
One by one, we will fall, down down.
Pull the plug, end the pain, run an' fight for life.
Hold on tight, this ain't my fight.

Deliver me from this war,
It's not for me it's because of you.
Devil's instant; my eternity,
Obey to kill to save yourself.

Cut me free, bleed with me, oh no.
One by one, we will fall, down down.
Pull the plug, end the pain, run an' fight for life.
Hold on tight, this ain't my fight.

"I envy the 9 lives that gave me hell,
My path made up by their torn bodies.
Man to man, soldier to soldier, dust to dust,
Call me a coward but I can't take it anymore."

They wait for me far back home,
The live with eyes turned away.
They were the first ones to see,
They are the last ones to bleed.

"The ultimate high as all beautiful dies.
A ruler's tool, a priest's excuse, a tyrant's delight...
I alone, the great white hunter.
I'll march till the dawn brings me rest.

10th patriot at the gallows' pole!"

Cut me free, bleed with me, oh no.
One by one, we will fall, down down.
Pull the plug, end the pain, run an' fight for life.
Hold on tight, this ain't my fight.

Cut me free, bleed with me, oh no.
One by one, we will fall, down down.
Pull the plug, end the pain, run an' fight for life.
Hold on tight, this ain't my fight.
