It's Still War

Verse:

What are you waiting for
It's time to start a world war
Let's board all the ships
And sail to the apocalypse
I can see it in your eye
Today's a perfect day to die
You've been hypnotized
If you think you are civilized

It's been calling me
I saw the trailer on T.V.
Giant plumes of smoke and light
It looked like Disneyland at night
I'd burn that little town and take those evil doers down
Roll out your biggest hearse
Cause I'm nuking the whole universe

I can see you there
Hiding in your underwear
I see your child's eyes
His dying body's drawing flies
You can't control your lungs
Just shaky prayers in foreign tongues
We had a moment there
Before your soul took to the air

Chorus:

Call it what you want
It's still war
Call it what you want
It don't matter anymore
Call it what you want
The verdicts in
Call it what you want
It's the way it's always been

Verse:

Men fire all your guns
We're dropping fifty megatons
Let's load all the jets
And help the banks pay off their debts
A thousand years of light
Wouldn't cure our appetite
A hundred million stars
Wouldn't quench this thirst of ours

And we walk into the room
We see the happy family
And the bride and groom
And you're all just eating cake
We slither in like a rattlesnake
Some run and some stand still
That's our favorite kind of kill
But you just smiled at me
Cause you know it was meant to be

Chorus:

Call it what you want
It's still war
Call it what you want
It don't matter anymore
Call it what you want
The verdict's in
Call it what you want
It's the way it's always been
