Don’t shoot the messenger
I’ve just come to bring the news
The world is crashing down
Our lives have lost their use

The voices echo clear
"Please stay calm and please stay here
Emergency is in effect"
The end is coming near

And the sirens blare their tunes
As we gather in the room
Counting down the hours
Until our doom

Don’t shoot the messenger
I am standing by your side
They’ve come to kill us all
There’s nowhere we can hide

Grab anything you can
And prepare for one last fight
We’re going down as one
The battle starts tonight

And we’ll face them all together
As we try to stand our ground
But there’s more than we can handle
We’re going down

Don’t shoot the messenger
I will suffer with you all
They’ve locked me up for good
I’m trapped inside these walls

Inject your poison in my skin
Make me you but you won’t win
I am just the messenger
There’s no fight from me within

And I see the others suffer
As I watch it from my cell
This is not what I signed up for
I’m trapped in hell
