War


It's war, all out war
Between me, myself, and I 
It's war, all out war
Between the the needle and the eye
It's war, all out war
Between the voices in my head
It's war, all out war 
Between the feathers and the lead 
It's war, all out war
Between desire and sudden death
It's war, all out war
Between the woman and her last breath
It's war, all out war
Between the people clad in black
It's war, all out war
Between the love that they now lack
It's war, all out war
Between the man and his strife
It's war, all out war 
Between his love and his new life
It's war, all out war
Between the heart and the head
It's war, all out war
As the man falls over dead
