Raw War

lyrics

Under pouring rain
Are we all in vain
Dying one by one
With all hope long gone
Lies we all were told
Now we lie here cold
Men that could be friends
Killed by the same hands

A thin border dividing us
And both sides to arms called
Prepare: they will us soon attack
Defend our fatherland old
There we stood ready to strike
And they attacked first by chance
Bloodshed by both sides unleashed
The right action at first glance

We’re told beasts they are
Devils from afar
It’s easier this way
Them in vengeance to slay
But it wont’ bring back
Victims of their attack
When vengeance is done
Their deeds won’t be undone

And it races through my mind
Can’t we a way out find
Must our lives end this way?
Has what we want nothing to say?

Under pouring rain
Are we all in vain
Dying one by one
With all hope long gone
Lies we all were told
Now we lie here cold
Men that could be friends
Killed by the same hands

And I clearly see
He’s my enemy
But he’s just a boy
Holding his gun as a toy
What lies brought him here
Terrified stare
On corpses of friends
Here his childhood ends

And it races through my mind:
A new way I have to find
We’re told kill them or we’ll die
But what if neither want I?

Is there no way out?
I don’t want you dead!
Can’t we lay down arms?
Go in peace in stead?

Solo: Anna

So I offer now
Let’s end this sorrow
To many lay dead
To much blood we’ve shed
But you don’t trust me
Trigger pulled at me
I fall to the ground
As my friends hold you down

And I scream as I fall down
Death’s all that we found
Let him go, let him live
To end this we must learn to forgive
