Tenth Man Down
Lyrics and Meaning


Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
Cut me free, bleed with me, oh no
One by one, we will fall, down, down
Pull the plug, end the pain, run'n fight for life
Hold on tight, this ain't my fight
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
Cut me free
Verse 5
I envy the nine 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
Verse 6
They wait for me back home
The live with eyes turned away
They were the first ones to see
They are the last ones to bleed
Verse 7
The ultimate high as all beautiful dies
A ruler's tool, priest's excuse, tyrant's delight
I alone, the great white hunter
I'll march till the dawn brings me rest
10th patriot at the gallows' pole
Verse 8
Cut me free
