Behind Enemy Lines

I said I’ll fight for my foot soldiers
but circumstances got a foothold
I showed her the loyalty of a mercenary
as thanks for the way she served me
That wasn’t the intention of mine
but that’s how a friendship’s defined
You’ve got to know when to sever the spine
all’s fair, when it’s not the fairest of lives

I promised to defend your name in these fights
but to win, you’ve got to switch sides
We crossed the border, drew battle lines
now retract my knife from your spine
Forgiveness for whatever you didn’t do
Forgive me for what I was meant to
But don’t forget why I crossed enemy lines
I’ll walk into a war for any friend of mine
