lyrics: soldiers who know war

I know what I am
and I know what you are
For some that will bring fear
for some relief and calm

I’ve lied a thousand times
though most of them sincere
I’ve swore the truth’s in words
but that may be naive
If the truth you fear
is the truth you know
oh, that can be terrifying
that can lead straight to blindness

I did not come to reassure the weak
I’ve come to sort the wolves from the sheep


if you bleed when cut
you are animal, just an animal
if you speak when called
you are a machine, just one more machine
Like a seed in water only does one thing
Like a dog in heat with a new tag on it’s neck
some words are writing in the wind
I know the system is a crime
I know I am nothing to it
I know it’s been everything to me

I know you’ve been trained to obey
I know you’ve been trained to perceive
I know you’ve been trained to perform
I know for it all happened to me

 

If the truth you fear
is the truth you know
oh, that can be terrifying
that can lead straight to blindness

I did not come to reassure the weak
I’ve come to sort the wolves from the sheep
some eat grass and some eat meat
some worship lies while some worship peace

for we are soldiers who know war
for we are soldiers who know war
for we are soldiers who know war
for we are soldiers who know war

I’ve seen the fools protest the wars
and if they stop one… then two more come
I’ve been with them, cursing at soldiers
the ink on my sign was braver than my blood

I have no shame for what I was
part of the PR campaign to show just how much
the guilty people back at home are so good to love our enemies
while our troops are surrounding them

I know what I am
and I know what you are
For some that will bring fear
for some relief and calm

I’ve lied a thousand times
though most of them sincere
I’ve swore the truth’s in words
but that may be naive

If the truth you fear
is the truth you know
oh, that can be terrifying
that can lead straight to blindness

I did not come to reassure the weak
I’ve come to sort the wolves from the sheep

some eat grass and some eat meat
some worship lies while some worship peace

for we are soldiers who know war

for we are soldiers who know war


for we are soldiers who know war


for we are soldiers who know war
