This Is War

Moments to tell the truth
Moments to still tell lies
What do you prefer
The time god
Decides if you should live or die
The time when you kill
And not to feel the guilt
This is war
Some think its great
Others think its hell
People getting
Shot or stabbed
This is war
They march in the shadows
In the streets or fields of battle
This is war
We wear our medals
Proud to be alive
Holding little burning candles
For the ones who died
This is war
To the right or left
We will fight to the death
Till the edge of the world
Comes to a rest
This is war
We come home to our families
Tears in our eyes
Just so happy
To see there smiling faces
We kiss and hug
Making sure everything is alright
Then we say goodnight
For the day has come to a rest
This is war
We will always have
The memories of others
Until one day
We will see them again
In the light of shimmering candles
