lyrics

Ooh wee, babe, gonna crash the gate,
Til it breaks this time.
I know you can hardly wait,
To draw the battle lines.
The city sleeps, we wait impatient for the sun to rise.
At daybreak, the rounds and mortar drown the battle cries.

You don’t need to know my name,
This is war.
Draw the lines and play my game,
This is war.

We’ve got the tack, no turning back,
The street is ours, tonight.
No one can stand when we attack,
And God is on our side.
At my feet, a fallen soldier I don’t recognize,
Somebody’s son, lyin’ in the rain, with open eyes.

You don’t need to know my name,
This is war.
Draw the lines and play my game,
This is war.

How long, til it’s over,
Til we live again?
How long til it’s over,
Do we wait?

Send me your young, I’ll save a space,
On the battle lines.
Heroes are made here, everyday,
In desperate time.

You don’t need to know my name,
This is war.
Draw the lines and play my game,
This is war.

How long, til it’s over,
Til we live again?
How long til it’s over,
Do we wait?
