Lyrics

War on War

Written By: Ross Christopher

So it seems we grow as fighters
Peace haters and war charmers
Early on we learn the lies
And over time the innocent dies

CHORUS
I’m declaring a war on war
‘Cause war’s a dirty whore
Who soldiers on to break and bleed
And kills humanity

We’re built for dying
As if we’re lying
That peace is an option
Because it’s always an option
