Took a train to New York city
Runnin' from my own despair
Caught up in these crazy days
Fallin' out of love affairs
I woke up to the sound of thunder
You could hear it everywhere
Put my ear down to the ground

Cuz there's a war goin' on, There's a war, war, war, goin' on

Mama's leavin' daddy cuz Daddy wasn't happy
They're both searchin' for something they'll
Probly never find
In this faithless society
With no respect for you and me
It's drivin' us out of our minds

Cuz there's a war goin' on , There's a war, war, war, goin' on

You didn't join the army and
You don't want to deal
Workin' for the minimum
Tryin' hard to feel like
You ain't just another fool
A cog in their machine
That's sucking the soul of everything

Cuz there's a war goin' on, There's a war, war, war, goin' on

Drive by shootings blow up
Blood stained t.v. shows
Where life is cheaper
Than bad writing
And thrown away like litter

While outside in the real world
People live on frozen streets
They stare at ya down to the bone

Cuz there's a war goin' on , There's a war, war, war, goin' on

Alcoholics ain't anonymous
There's addicts in the family
Dreamin' of false promises
No one ever made
Envious of millionaires
But not a workin' father
Whose left his whole life
At the gate

Cuz there's a war goin' on, There's a war, war, war, goin' on

Chemicals for pleasure
Chemicals for pain
Plastic derivatives
Styrofoam distributed
We're livin' on this toxic dump
Air is bad medicine
Ain't it time we took back the sun

Cuz there's a war goin' on, There's a war, war, war, goin' on

And who will pay the price
And who will give their life
And who knows that there's no place
Left to run

Soldier boys in desert heat
Leave behind these crooked streets
To kill and die for foreign oil
They'll leave their hearts in dusty soil
The president loosens his tie
To get more comfortable with the lies
That he tells us again, and again, and again


Cuz there's a war goin' on, There's a war, war, war, goin' on

Body bags and unmarked graves
Robberies and murder rates
Unemployed and off to fight
Criminal or corporate types
Hollywood and Washington
Selling us another bomb
It's goin' off inside my head

Cuz there's a war goin' on, There's a war, war, war goin' on

And who will pray for peace
And who will cry for love
And who will still believe
In a world for everyone, everyone, everyone

Now I stand out on the street
Lookin' for a heart or two
To come together, join together
Maybe build the world anew
Broken pieces fill our eyes
So many people sing the blues
But tell me, what else can we do

Cuz there's a war goin' on
