Take the Heartland Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm gonna hide my heart behind the peacock's fan
And keep my friends real close, yeah, this is how it's gonna go
I'm gonna find my knife and run it through those stitches
Throw my friends down in the ditches before they even know what I've come here for
Verse 2
Take the Heartland with a sense of revenge
Take the Heartland and make it look easy
Take the Heartland, you'll die in the end
Take the Heartland
Verse 3
I'm gonna grow my hair down to my face like a Fidel Castro
Like a Che Guevara or a Fidel Castro
And I'm gonna grant my folk my life's one last wish
And I'm gonna take their life with a knife
And I'm gonna sit and wait, not fall
Verse 4
Take the Heartland with a sense of revenge
Take the Heartland and make it look easy
Take the Heartland, we'll die in the end
Take the Heartland
Verse 5
Should I kill you with my sword, yeah?
Or should I kill you with this word?
Verse 6
You say sit, you say stand, you say stop, you say go
You say sit, you say stop, you say what, you say no
You say go, you say sit, you say stand, you say stop
You say go, you say sit, and you sit and you watch us all
Verse 7
Should I kill you with my sword, yeah?
Or should I kill you with this word?
Verse 8
Take the Heartland
Take the Heartland, your sense of revenge
Take the Heartland, you make it look easy
Take the Heartland
Verse 9
I set myself by the west, by the watch, by the wall
I set myself by the wish, by the watch, by the wall
I set myself by the words, by the watch, by the wall
I set myself by the words, by the voice that I heard
