Damned by Association

Demons on my heels
Fallen angels on my back

Scrambling over the bodies
Tripping through the mud
Blinking away…
…The sweat, blood, and tears.

Never wanted to be here
Never asked for this
Did nothing to deserve this

But,
Here we will stand,
Damned by association

Here we will fight,
Damned by association

Here we will remain,
Damned by association

Here we will fall,
Damned by association

Demons on my heels,
Fallen angels on my back.

Real angels turning away,
Heaven closing its doors

Because we are all
Damned by association.
