For God and Country

"The song God & Country kinda came to me late in the making of the record. I think it approaches a lot of themes on the record, which is like 'what do I do with these set of conflicting feelings?'"

-Billy Corgan (AT&T Blue Room, July 2007)

 

Lyrics

i want to live for God and country
i want to give for God and country

it's too late for some
it's too late for what you've done
i can't help what i divide in you

for God and country i'll fight
for God and country i'll die
for God and country my soul is so alive
my soul is so alive
lay down your arms to me
lay down your arms for God and country

i want to live where no one's watching my way home
i want to give until i'm bursting with unknown

it's too late for some
it's too late for everyone
i can't help what i destroy in you

well who needs this anymore?
c'mon make it so
that when they build their cross of death
you won't build your own

it's time to wake up!
it's time to wake up for good
i can't help you though i should

for God and country we'll fight
for God and country we'll die
for God and country my soul is so alive
my soul is so alive
lay down your arms to me
lay down your arms for God and country

you can't deny God and country
we're fighting for our lives
you can't deny God and country
our souls are so aligned
in this time of God and country
we'll take you on our side
it's alright

my soul is so alive
with God and night
with God and country
my soul is so alive
