Genesis The Knife (live version) Lyrics

Last updated:

Tell me my life is about to begin,
Tell me that I'm a hero,
Promise me all of you violent dreams,
I guarantee all you will need them
Now, in this ugly world,
get ready to fight for your freedom
Now, when I give the word,
get ready to destroy all this evil
Now -

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We will strike at the lies
That have spread like disease through our minds.
Soon we'll have won and we'll treasure this worth
With our winnings and kindness
To all who our love now deserve
Some of you are going to die -
Martyrs, of course, to the freedom I will provide.

I'll give you the names of those you must kill
Then have all burned and quickly
Cover them up in Trafalgar Square
Hurry to see, you'll see them dead
In this ugly world,
ready to fight for your freedom
Now, when I give a word
hang 'em on high, let the blood flow
Now -

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies
That have spread like disease through our minds
Soon we'll have won and we'll treasure this worth
With our winnings and kindness
To all who our love now deserve
Some of you are going to die -
Martyrs of course, to the freedom I will provide

We are only wanting freedom...

--- WE HAVE WON ---

Some of you are going to die,
Martyrs, of course, to the freedom I will provide
