lyrics

"War, war never changes."

Like an unwanted guest we knock on the door,
ruin dinner with fine gifts of progress,
and state of art technology,
Christian thought and modern ways of living.

We sweep the land with one way empathy
like a bully equipped with a handgun.
And undetonated cluster bombs:
"Something for the children."

What are we preventing by making enemies?
For freedom or fairness, no matter the objective,
bombs are still made to raze and guns to kill
For morals or money, seen in the great perspective,
it is a world for our children the we burn down.

We'll leave again but we're not leaving much;
institutions for your legless children.
Still, from far away we're shocked to see
the works of the oppressor blown to pieces.

But between the ruins of the Bible schools
and the foundations of western values
lies the progress and initiative
made for the people.

No one burns down a house of their friends and family.
For freedom or fairness, no matter the objective,
bombs are still made to raze and guns to kill
For morals or money, seen in the great perspective,
it is a world for our children the we burn down. Burn it down!

You cannot fight terrorists (by) becoming one yourself.
All the arms we need are for hugging!
