Biography

War for Peace was formed in Mount Airy NC in the fall of 1997. From November 1997 - May 2000 War for Peace toured for 40 weeks and played over 200 shows a year for 3 years with no more than a 2 week break between runs. At the present time the fully functional power trio has earned a full p.a. system equipped with an in-ear monitoring system. The boys are ready for business and can garauntee a professional show with NO feedback from the system and total feedback from the audience.War for Peace is a road-seasoned modern and classic rock band from the East Coast. Our time as a touring circuit act has polished us into a tight unit capable of crossing genre boundaries with ease, but we'd rather rock. Not only does John W.(Bass), (A.K.A. Flip) put the roar in our rumble, he also possesses the enviable skill of being a talented and prolific songwriter. A true entertainer, John can adapt quickly to any crowd with the intention to inspire and connect with all that listen. Mitch H.(Drums), started playing in 1972 at the young age of five. With over 30 years experience and an insatiable desire to practice, Mitch has acquired a devastating technique that leaves most audience members astounded. Lastly, we have John H.(Guitar,Vocals), a man with uncompromising musical standards and a true passion for his first musical love, the guitar. H is an extremely versatile musician, as he is secretly a classically trained guitarist subjected to years of scrutinizing ear training and theory lessons - who just happens to love to rock out.We have performed in 13 different states in many different venues including the largest night club in the United States- Club LaVela(Panama City, FL), 3rd Rock(Superior, WI), Scooch's(Roanoke, VA), The Rock Pile(Denver, Colorado), Planet Rock(Jacksonville,NC), Planet Rock(Battle Creek, MI), Pepper's(Kalamazoo, MI), The Alpine Lounge(Grand Rapids, MI), Peanuts(Fort Wayne IN) Kicks(Gilette,WY), Dirty Harry's(Key West FL), The Cleaners Club(Lynchburg VA), Champions(Janesville, WI), Cahoots(Grand Junction, CO), The Cabstand (Albany,GA),Ten Bells Lounge (Grand Rapids, MI) Boondock's Tavern (Whitehall, MI) The Backdoor Bar (Holland, MI) Etc...

Lyrics

TOMORROW

Written By: JOHN HOFFNAGLE & JOHN WILSON

WHO YOU CHOOSE TO FOLLOW AFECTS YOUR TOMORROW
MAY BRING DAYS OF SORROW
YOU'LL FORGET YOUR SORROW WHEN YOU WAKE TOMORROW
JUST DON'T FEAR THE HORROR

*(CHORUS)
SEEK AND YOU WILL FIND
LOOK AHEAD NOT BEHIND
THE MORE YOU LIVE
THE MORE YOU KNOW
TOMORROW COMES
TOMORROW GOES

AVOID ALL CONFUSION
DON'T FALL FOR ILLUSIONS
DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS
DON'T ACCEPT THE LIMITS
TAKE THE TIME TO FINISH
DON'T LET FAITH DIMINISH

*(CHORUS)

"DON'T LISTEN TO YOUR HEART"

Written By: JOHN HOFFNAGLE & JOHN WILSON

DON'T LISTEN TO YOUR HEART 'CAUSE IT'S ONLY GONNA TEAR YOU APART.
I KNOW SHE'S CAUGHT YOUR EYE JUST BE CAREFUL 'CAUSE SHE MIGHT MAKE YOU CRY.
DON'T LET IT PLAY WITH YOUR MIND I KNOW LOVE IS SO HARD TO FIND.
BUT IF YOU WANNA PLAY THESE GAMES YOU BETTER KNOW IT'S GONNA DRIVE YOU INSANE.

[PRE-CHORUS]*
EVERY DAY IT SEEMS THAT LOVERS FIND ANOTHER WAY TO BETRAY EACH OTHER

I SEE YOU WEAR A FROWN, SEEMS THE SITUATION'S BRINGING YOU DOWN.
YOU WEAR YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE AND YOU'RE ONLY GONNA MAKE THAT GIRL LEAVE.
SHE'S GOT TO LET YOU KNOW IF IT'S REAL OR IF IT'S ALL FOR SHOW.
I KNOW YOU HURT INSIDE. PICK YOURSELF BACK UP AND DUST OFF YOUR PRIDE.

[PRE-CORUS]*
YOU KNOW IT WON'T LAST.
IT'S TIME TO PUT IT ALL IN THE PAST.

*(CHORUS)
DON'T LISTEN TO YOUR HEART
NO, IT'S GONNA TEAR YOU APART
DON'T LISTEN TO YOUR HEART
NO, DON'T LISTEN TO YOUR HEART.
**(SOLO)
[PRE-CORUS]*
*(CHORUS)

"HOW I FEEL"

Written By: JOHN WILSON & JOHN HOFFNAGLE

EVERY DAY I LOOK FOR A WAY TO REVEAL HOW I FEEL.
EACH DAY I'M PUSHED FURTHER AWAY AND I SEE WHAT IS REAL FOR ME
I TRY TO SEE WHAT'S INSIDE,
WHAT YOU FEEL
BUT IT'S HARD TO SEE THROUGH YOUR LIES
*(CHORUS)
WHAT GOES AROUND COMES RIGHT BACK AROUND AND YOU'LL SEE
WHAT IT MEANS TO FEEL
HOW I FEEL

I'M AWARE THAT OBIOUSLY YOU DON'T CARE
HOW I FEEL
DON'T CRY. WHEN I NEEDED YOU YOU WEREN'T THERE
IS THAT FAIR?
YOU TURNED YOUR BACK ON ME TO REVEAL HOW YOU FEEL
IT'S TIME THE TABLES HAVE TURNED. DON'T ASK WHY WHEN YOU FEEL THE WAY THAT I FEEL
*(CHORUS)
