Lyrics
Selfish repulsive uniform
I march in line to the drums of the corps
Regurgitated
Disgusted, am I just a brick in the wall

With courage naked to the veil
The flood that carved the canyon walls
The mountains never holds her breath
We need a different kind of war

War
War

Was two in 1984
Big brother the actor you voted for
Democracy’s slogan
Protecting the walls of the capitalists

With courage naked to the veil
The flood that carved the canyon walls
The mountains never holds her breath
We need a different kind of war

Let’s use love like a knife try to cut through the surface
Love can break through the ice when you’re fighting a different kind of war

Let’s use love like a knife try to cut through the surface
Love can break through the ice when we’re fighting a different war
War of understanding
War of understanding
War of understanding

I’ve got a lot to say so I’ll try to talk fast
Everything I ever learned I learned from the past
Soliloquies slowly clearly, straight from my heart so you hear me
Owe you my life, Mr Chomsky
Taught me to read, Stephen King’d me
With borrowed mouth do I breath, I was the river

With courage naked to the veil
The flood that carved the canyon walls
The mountains never hold her breath
We need a different kind of war

Let’s use love like a knife try to cut through the surface
Love can break through the ice when you’re fighting a different kind of war

Let’s use love like a knife try to cut through the surface
Love can break through the ice when we’re fighting a different war
War of understanding
War of understanding
War of understanding
