Death to My Hometown Lyrics

No cannonballs did fly no rifles cut us down
No bombs fell from the sky no blood soaked the ground
No powder flash blinded the eye no deafening thunder sounded
But just as sure as the hand of god
They brought death to my hometown
They brought death to my hometown

No shells ripped the evening sky
No cities burning down, no armies stormed the shores for which we’d die
No dictators were crowned
High off on a quiet night, I never heard a sound
The marauders raided in the dark and brought death to my hometown, boys
Death to my hometown

They destroyed our families’ factories and they took our homes
They left our bodies on the plains the vultures picked our bones
So listen up, my Sonny boy be ready for when they come
For they’ll be returning sure as the rising sun
Now get yourself a song to sing and sing it ’til you’re done
Yeah, sing it hard and sing it well send the robber baron’s straight to hell
The greedy thieves that came around
And ate the flesh of everything they’ve found
Whose crimes have gone unpunished now walk the streets as free men now (now..)

And they brought
Death to our hometown, boys [x3]
Death to our hometown
