Not My War Lyrics
Do you hear the war drums?
They play the song of impending death
An archenemy has been chosen
A new scapegoat for unrest
Starting a war to settle the score
They say God is on our side
A mission divine, and just this once
Killing is justified

My bureaucracy has enemies, but their enemies are not mine
Feed into the corruption
War is a rich man's game
But a poor man's fight
And it never ends

I can feel the coming genocide
And I'm forced to take a side
While the leaders count the bodies in the ground
No compromise
It bleeds right before my eyes
Desensitized
And this is not my war

Only the dead have seen the end of war
We're standing fast for something more
We pay the price for peace
With the blood of the deceased

My bureaucracy has enemies, but their enemies are not mine
Feeding on our destruction
We've only ourselves to blame
Now salute the flag
As it turns to ashes

I can feel the coming genocide
And I'm forced to take a side
While the leaders count the bodies in the ground
No compromise
It bleeds right before my eyes
Desensitized
And this is not my war

Oh, how we all claim to be pacifists
Until we are commanded to hate

And it turns to ashes

I can feel the coming genocide
And I'm forced to take a side
While the leaders hide the bodies in the ground
No compromise
It bleeds right before my eyes
Desensitized
And this is not my war

I can feel the coming genocide
I don't want to take a side
While our fathers put their children in the ground
A sacrifice
It decays right before my eyes
And this is not my war
