War

Lyrics & Chords

Not my usual style, but being Soldier did something to me.

LYRICS

I was taken in
By a red devil with a charming grin
and he and I were close as anything
But battles shake the ghosts from the carpeting

And what did I receive
for my loyalty to my beliefs?
Boots on my feet, banner in the air
shovel in my hand diggin’ a hole to nowhere

And I will barricade myself inside my barracks, myself, me and I
And never have to look a traitor in the eye again
And after all this is a War, and what are enemy lines for
If not to separate the weaklings from the men?

Heros never die
‘Long as the battle survives, we too must stay alive
I can’t believe it ended with a lie
I’d like to talk to you about it if you’ve got the time

But there’s no time to grieve
I must stay loyal to what I believe
And any part of me that dares to disagree
Will be buried deep beneath my pain and indignity

And I will barricade myself inside my barracks, myself, me and I
And never have to look a traitor in the eye again
And after all this is a War, and what are enemy lines for
If not to separate the bleeders from the men?

And if some day we were to make our Peace
I would not want your apologies
That’s not the man I knew back then
Have faith, defend
I’ll be there in the end

And I will run outside with my banner held high, streaming blue across the sky
And I’ll shake your hand and look you in the eye my friend
But until then this is a war and what are enemy lines for
If not to separate you from your fellow man?

This is the kind of thing I want to skip over, because my clumsy praise would almost be an insult to the beautiful thing you’ve built.

Where are all the other comments? Fuck, you’re awesome.

Www

This made me tear up. No, really. The lyrics — especially the second stanza — they just got me. They just did.

You’re amazing.

Www

I really love all your music. Sometimes I can’t believe it’s ‘just’ fan-made, haha. This one’s by far my favourite, even though every song is beautiful.

Www
