lyrics

A War For One

The desire for one man's death
result in hundreds, even thousands more
While the intention is revenge
the final action is war
Just because one man has power
is his life greater than any other?
Why do we fight at all
we are all humans, we are all brothers

While the leaders of a country feud,
it's the soldiers who must sacrifice
The president just makes decisions
while the troops pay with their lives
Soldier meet face to face
and either choose to kill or choose to die
They don't hate each other personally
but they take each other's lives

It's a war for one, Solution
It's a war for one, Ambition
It's a war for one, Expectation
It's a war for one, Decision

Greed, corruption, and hate divide us
until only rivalry exist
And century after century it seems
the obvious message is missed

Killing, fighting, and war
are not the recipe for a revolution
They only result in mass death
and a temporary solution


Agreement and compromise
no longer even seem to exist
And peace is dead as we
settle our fights with our fists

Leaders claim they are men
yet they fight like little children
And they feel no shame or guilt
sacrificing lives so they can win

It's a war for one, Solution
It's a war for one, Ambition
It's a war for one, Expectation
It's a war for one, Decision





Whether you're pulling the trigger
or marching troops to their death
You are still contributing
to the world's giant mess

You have the ability to drop your gun
and to make the fire cease
We all have the power to reject war
and accept peace

You can choose to be a pacifist
or you can choose to be a leader’s tool
And whether or not to march to your death
like a fool

Killing is murder and war is slaughter
The world's hate is just evils fodder

It's a war for one, Solution
It's a war for one, Ambition
It's a war for one, Expectation
It's a war for one, Decision
It’s a war for one!
