lyrics

They come with zealous confidence
True believers flying blind
So certain they are heaven-sent
Only killing to be kind

Lady Liberty adores you
You want her watching o’er you
Still can’t get out from under
The fate that lies before you

Behold the Seraphim! Bringing life
Enter the Seraphim! Raining death
Welcome the Seraphim! Those selfish avengers

May flights of angels sing thee til you scream yourself awake
The better monsters of our nature make the best mistakes
The devil that you know is still a devil all the same

They will hear your cries of trouble
Flying in to save the day
Turn your cities into rubble
You'll be better off that way

It’s not as easy as just taking sides
Careful who you choose as friends
Facts on the ground can paralyze
So tell me how this ends

Behold the Seraphim! Bringing life
Enter the Seraphim! Raining death
Welcome the Seraphim! Those dangerous avengers

May flights of angels sing until the battle cries begin
Can you count the freedom fighters dancing on a pin
The devil that you know is still the one who takes you in

Holy, holy, holy war
Keep the lion at the door
Holy, holy, holy war
Keep the rebels at the door
Holy, holy, holy war
At the left hand of the lord
Holy, holy, holy war
Hurt the ones you're fighting for

Behold the Seraphim! Bringing life
Enter the Seraphim! Raining death
Pity the refugees! But don't give them shelter

May flights of angels sing until you scream the devil's name
The greatest monsters of our time are only half to blame
The devil that you know is still a devil all the same
