Cycle Of Violence Lyrics

Cycle Of Violence by Behind Enemy Lines  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



Cycle Of Violence It's the age-old conflict, the territorial dispute
Endless accusations flying about who has wronged who
Desperate determination to show no sign of weakness
The leaders take action while their people pay the consequences
Abandoning diplomacy, those in power unwilling to yield
Playing stupid fucking politics that just get people killed
Deciding that all out aggression is the best way to defend
So the cycle of violence starts all over again
It's a bloodbath in the west bank
There is no end in sight
Both sides are so consumed with avenging death
That there's no respect for life
Israeli soldiers are gunning down Palestinians
Murdering children for throwing stones
While Hamas is recruiting children to become martyrs
And murder more Israelis as suicide bombers
But the biggest obscenity of all of this hateful hostility
Has been reducing through action and rhetoric into a subhuman enemy
The dehumanization of one another
Has been the justification for the horrific brutality
It's a bloodbath in the Gaza strip
There is no end in sight
Both sides are so consumed with avenging death
That there's no respect for life
How many more?
How long?
Who's right?
Who's wrong?
Are they really so bloodthirsty in their hatred for the enemy
That they're willing to disregard their own peoples safety?
They make their own people targets with every act of aggression
All in the name of teaching the enemy a lesson
Innocent people imprisoned by the violence that the conflict creates
Warmongers and butchers deciding everyone's fate
How will there ever be peace with such human rights abuses?
When you dehumanize humans then all humanity loses
It's a bloodbath in Bethlehem
There is no end in sight
Both sides are so consumed with avenging death
That there's no respect for life
