Text Version Of Lyrics

Anything Else But


Is there another option, to the blood that we spill
It’s the ones who get in the way, who have to pay the bill
Seems like a movie, reality lost
They never show the outtakes, or the scenes, of the hardship and the cost

Oh the ignorance is leading us, is leading us, is leading us, to destruction

Can’t we think about, anything else but
Can’t we live without anything else but,
It’s about time we see the world as one,
Can’t we find a way without, anything else but, war

The politics of conflict, the media spin
Defies all explanation, where did this all begin
Beyond all reason, no self control
Just take a look in the innocent eyes, see yourself in their soul
