No Sacrifice

He's been to hell and he's fought in the war
He lives his life but can't feel any more
They took his world and they gave him a gun
Tell me brother, what the hell have we done?

Another face that is lost in the sand
A sinking ship in the promised land
Pistol in the pocket, money for the man
Thorn is in my side, future's in our hands
I've got to live with two feet on the floor
Go tell the pigs that I ain't gonna sacrifice

No sacrifice, ain't gonna sacrifice, no sacrifice

Too many masters, too many pawns
So little time between the darkness and dawn
Too much temptation from the power of green
Too much corrosion in the world that I've seen
You want to dance in the light of the moon
You've got to march to a different tune

Pistol in the pocket, bread for common man
Law is on their side, future's in our hands
I've got to live with two feet on the floor
Go tell the pigs that I ain't gonna sacrifice

No sacrifice, ain't gonna sacrifice, no sacrifice

Another face that is lost in the sand
A sinking ship in the promised land
Pistol in the pocket, money for the man
Thorn is in my side, future's in our hands

You want to dance in the light of the moon
You've got to march, but I ain't gonna sacrifice

No sacrifice, ain't gonna sacrifice, no sacrifice

I feel the heat of the last rising sun
Another day and the world is done
I know the game but I ain't gonna sacrifice

No sacrifice, ain't gonna sacrifice, no sacrifice
