No we should turn around No we should not do this now huh? No we should turn around CMake some plans then come baGck and attCack CWe went to schGool and we toAmld the gFang We all met up the next Saturday Armed to the team with BB guns, Rambo knives and machetes CWe were a wiGcked little teaCm F G CWe marched Gbeside the nAmew found strFeam There were an offence on the trees We found their club so easily We ripped up everything CWe showed nGo merCcy F G CWe painteGd lighAmtening bFolts And we left a note to let our enemies know that this war has begun We said, you got no rights to post that kind of sign This woods does not belong to you or anyone CAnd your warnings dGon't scarCe uFs G DmBecausAme, we EmoveAm silently We hide in the shadows of the trees and we will not be seen We can disarm the traps, just set, set our own that you will trip Our arrows will fly straighter This woods does not belong to anyone, but if it must it will belong to us DmWe haAmve wonE thisAm day, you should know our names DmWe are the GAmladiatEors C FWe made maGps, we gave naCmes to all the paAmths We found the place that gave our little town its name It looked like a castle but it was where they made the cement at FTo us it was sGuch a magic pClace FWe made a temple out of wGood and we filCled it with the Ambones That we found in the woods so people would leave us alone We were young, we were dumb, we were having so much fun The new kings of the new kingdomStandard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo

There's much more to us than just old bones CAnd the top of the Gcastle is wheFre we would meet next This time the time and the place were things that we picked We said no weapons, we said no tricks We did the best to hide the fact that we were just some little kids CWe were justG some little Ckids CI was scaGred whenAm I saw himF He looked much older and I thought that he might be a Vet His master climbed the wall and saw he had a rifle hidden on a rope hanging in the pit CWe saiGd no weaponCs FandG we called him out on it CHe didn't kGnow how I coAmuld know untilF he turned around His master had climbed up right behind him And didn't make a sound CAnd weG really ChadF hiGm now DmWe talked foAmr a while wEith this strCanger about the natives of this land, our gangs, and nature We got home again We didn't know what to think of him But it seemed like the war was over and the trees held no more danger CI was sad tGo see it Cgo FA few days lGater I ran in Cto him aAmlone At the place that used to be his old gang's base He told me stories of their glory days Before his friends grew up or they moved away EAnd we decided that day that we woAmuld build something CWe would build it together, it would represent our truce And as I got to know him, it got easy to see that he was just a kid who loved the woods like me CHe was a friend, he was nGot an enemCy CWe made our eGnemies our fCriends CWe should have never Ambeen enemiesG with them C CWe made ourG enemies our Amfriends F CAnd our gang got twGice as big C
