October 31 For There Is War! Lyrics

Last updated:

War!
Inside his mind it's '69
Somewhere in Vietnam
Yes, in his head there's millions dead
From guns, grenades, and bombs
For he's the one that feels the thunder
A prisoner of the times
Just trapped alone in a mental shock
And wanting just to die

As evil unfolds before the eyes
The horror of killing another man
One nation under God

For all around him there is pain
So is the wage of sin
The memories on the battlefield
Are buried deep within
For now the future's only past
And broken is this man
Eternally his life was lost
While fighting for his land

As evil unfolds before the eyes
The horror of killing another man
One nation under God

War! Forever there is war! For there is war!
He can thank the USA
For the way he feels today
For there is war! There is war!

I see them all around me
They're all living just to die
Just trying to make their way
And moving on
But nothing stops the torment
Of those days in Vietnam
As the battle in their minds
Is raging on

Shellshocked mindless madmen
For deep inside there is war!

They had the strength of courage
And they had the will to fight
But in the end they learned
Just how to die
And as they live the terror
Of a time so long ago
It's now too late
To save their wasted lives

And so again the music plays
The battle hymn of war
For there is war!
And every night within the dark
Those nightmares comes again
For there is war!

War!

So here's the lesson to be learned
Amongst this grief and pain
And that's in life there's nothing
Worth the hell of war again
So leave the courage to the fire
And vengeance will stay free
And liberty will carry on
For all eternity

As evil unfolds before the eyes
The horror of killing another man
One nation under God

War! Forever there is war! For there is war!
