Intro

(Hey)

Verse 1

Down, let's take it down
Raise up the ^[heads] on a stake
We will show no mercy
On ^[evolution's] mistake
 
Change, will have to wait
If we can't ^[decide] on a fate
Self appointed prophets
^[And a doomsday charade]

Post-
Verse

You preach ^[about love]
And teach ^[about faith]
^[But all your beliefs]
^[Are still rooted in hate]

Refrain

[Crosses still burn, axes still fall]
And down on your knees, you just don't look so tall
 
[Crosses still burn, axes still fall]
And down on your knees, you just don't look so tall

Verse 2

Stop, punch in the clock
Punch it with ^[all of your rage]
Put the men in office
^[For a minimum wage]
 
Rats, fighting for scraps
Siphon the ^[gas from your tank]
Left your pockets empty
^[As they laughed at the bank]

Post-
Verse

They speak about trust
But ^[make no mistake]
They're ^[shaking your head]
^[While they spit in your face]

Refrain

[Crosses still burn, axes still fall]
And down on your knees, you just don't look so tall
 
[Crosses still burn, axes still fall]
And down on your knees, you just don't look so tall

Verse 3

^[Now, the time is now]
^[We can still turn it around]
^[Raise your voice like a weapon]
^['Til they fall] to the ground
 
^[Light, let there be light]
^[Without a shadow of doubt]
^[We will fight tooth and nail]
^[Until salvation is found]

Post-
Verse

^[So how can you look]
The ^[world in the eyes]
When ^[all we can see]
^[Is corruption and lies]

Bridge

Down on your knees, you don't look so tall
Down on your knees, you don't look so tall
 
Crackin' the whip on the backs of the poor
We asked you to stop but you still wanted more
The blood on your hands left a trail as you crawl
Down on your knees you just don't look so tall

Refrain

[Crosses still burn, axes still fall]
Down on your knees, you just don't look so tall
 
[Crosses still burn, axes still fall]
Down on your knees, you just don't look so tall
 
[Crosses still burn, axes still fall]
Down on your knees, you just don't look so tall

Refrain

[Crosses still burn, axes still fall]
Down on your knees, you don't look so tall
Open your eyes and the empire ^[falls]
