Prophets of War Lyrics

It burns deep down inside of me

We have ourselves to blame

 

Not questioning accepted as the truth

 

Debate this fight it's just cause

 

The facts do not support theirs

 

To liberate a people

 

And rid them of tyrant rule

 

Is it time to make a change

 

Are we closer than before

Can we help them break away

Are we profiting from war

 

It's time to make a change

 

Intrigued

 

Got your attention - deceived

 

Since the inception - our brave

Fight for what reason

 

Compelled

Can we clean up this mess

 

The loss of loved ones

A perverse request

 

They continue the same rhetoric

These derelicts that profit

Win or lose

 

Is it time to make a change

 

Are we closer than before

Can we help them break away

 

Are we profiting from war

 

It's time to make a change

 

Time for change

 

Fight the fear

 

Find the truth

 

Time for change

 

The only thing

 

That I believe

Will help us see this through is faith

 

Pray they will forgive

 

Forgive our arrogance

 

So we can make it right

 

Right what they have wronged

See you sweat

Unexpected controversial

Get used to it

Things are gonna get personal

Your sympathy

A pitiful display you stutter

Your empathy

Means nothing if there is no honor

Responsible

Of this you are incapable

We implicate

Incriminate - Exacerbate - Too much at stake

Our Fathers Mothers

Sisters Brothers

Sons and Daughters

Forced

Perpetuating their ideals

A mindless act

To stay the course

 

Is it time to make a change

 

Are we closer than before

Can we help them break away

 

Are we profiting from war

 

Is it time to make a change

 

Are we closer than before

Can we help them break away

 

Are we profiting from war

Is it time to make a change

 

A change from what it's been

Can we help them break away

Is our patience wearing thin

 

It's time to make a change

Time for change

 

Fight the fear

 

Find the truth

 

Time for change
