aftershock, shellshock

Misfits

We are tainted
We are broken in two
I can face myself again
I can't face what we've been through
Now I've served my time
There's no going back
I've served my time
There's no going back.

The sun is shining
The dark clouds are all gone
Leaves are falling all around
But we keep movin' on
He don't remember anything
His lips move but he don't speak
One day he will return
From the game of hide and seek.

CHORUS
----------
We are misfits
We are lost and never found
We are misfits
We crashed and went to ground
The war is over 
But we're still fighting it
Wake up, the war is over
Take another hit.
----------

Too many people
Too many people she can't face
She put her trust in us
Now we guard her space
She searched the whole world
Now she's not alone
She searched the whole world
She found some kind of home.

We are survivors
In a bitter aftermath
Resources running low
Gallows humour when we laugh
The phoenix spreads its wings
And heads for clear blue skies
The phoenix spreads its wings
And never dies.

CHORUS
