Bring the War Home Lyrics
I threw my useless life into their wars and riots
For the ideal to serve the ones I love
Yes, all too soon
No recognition for my pointless sacrifice
And far too late I saw
I left my home defenceless
This world's a slaughterhouse
And men like me are not the butchers

I brought justice to no one
But there was no doubt, it always stands to reason
Protect the just, conquer the felons
Returned wounded and broken
But I never left these barren fields
And now

I understand
There is no war to end all wars, take it from me
Drowning your hones love in mindless violence
I bring the war home, still raging within me

All too soon these children lost their father
And far too late I saw, that not for them I fought
The gods of profit led me into their battles

I never brought security to those
I wanted to protect
Feeding the machine
And staining this world with blood instead
And only now

I understand
There is no war to end all wars, take it from me
Drowning your honest love in mindless violence
I bing the war home, still raging within me

Take it from me, you'll carry the war home
I brought justice to no one
Now they spit me in the face
I did not recognize the real offenders
And now

I understand
There is no war to end all wars, take it from me
Drowning your honest love in mindless violence
I bring the war home, still raging within me

We brought affliction to the masses
And splendour to a few
We are aggressors, not defenders
