THE COST OF WAR

Stare at the images with disbelief
Mothers carry screaming children bloody

THIS IS THE COST OF WAR

Mangled limbs and tears grieving
I can't believe what Iím seeing
Bullets tear us apart from the inside
Flags tear us apart through the mind

THIS IS THE COST OF WAR

Money
Power
Oil
Greed
Planting the seed for New World Order
As the rich get rich the poor get poorer
We spill our blood for the New World Order
Their getting richer and were get poorer
And poorer

Bulldoze refugee camps
Stomp them to the ground
Machine gun fire
Muffles this gut wrenching sound
Watch in horror glued to the TV
Planes dropping like flies
Bloodied New York skies
As buildings crumble to dust
The enemy is within us

THIS IS THE COST OF WAR

Violence breeds fear
Violence breeds hate
Violence is anger
And violence has made
Us loose our sight
Loose our divine minds
Violence breeds grief
Violence ends lives
But most of all
VIOLENCE BREEDS VIOLENCE

THIS IS THE COST OF WAR
ITS AN ENDLESS CYCLE
WITH NO CURE

9 year old explosion
Attacks with suicide
Beautiful young Asians
Become mail order brides
This is what we've reduced them to
Their fighting to survive
And when all hope has died
Violence comes to life,
Brutality stems from the
Inside out
Can't make your way
Riding on a cloud
Of fear,
Deception,
And pain
Its hard to see
As bullets breeze by your face
Truth will always be the first casualty
Upon the horizon is the fall of humanity
Stand up and see!
Blood haunts my dreams!

THIS IS THE COST OF WAR
