Civil war Lyrics

Civil war by Guns N' Roses  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Civil war "WHAT WE'VE GOT HERE IS FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE
SOME MEN YOU JUST CAN'T REACH... 
SO, YOU GET WHAT WE HAD HERE LAST WEEK, 
WHICH IS THE WAY HE WANTS IT! 
WELL, HE GETS IT! 
N' I DON'T LIKE IT ANY MORE THAN YOU MEN." * 

(whistle) 
Look at your young men fighting 
Look at your women crying 
Look at your young men dying 
The way they've always done before 

Look at the hate we're breeding 
Look at the fear we're feeding 
Look at the lives we're leading 
The way we've always done before 

My hands are tied 
The billions shift from side to side 
And the wars go on with brainwashed pride 
For the love of God and our human rights 
And all these things are swept aside 
By bloody hands time can't deny 
And are washed away by your genocide 
And history hides the lies of our civil wars 

D'you wear a black armband 
When they shot the man 
Who said "Peace could last forever" 
And in my first memories 
They shot Kennedy 
I went numb when I learned to see 
So I never fell for Vietnam 
We got the wall of D.C. to remind us all 
That you can't trust freedom 
When it's not in your hands 
When everybody's fightin' 
For their promised land 

And 
I don't need your civil war 
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor 
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers 
In a human grocery store 
Ain't that fresh 
I don't need your civil war 
Ow, oh no, no, no, no, no 

Look at the shoes you're filling 
Look at the blood we're spilling 
Look at the world we're killing 
The way we've always done before 
Look in the doubt we've wallowed 
Look at the leaders we've followed 
Look at the lies we've swallowed 
And I don't want to hear no more 

My hands are tied 
For all I've seen has changed my mind 
But still the wars go on as the years go by 
With no love of God or human rights 
'Cause all these dreams are swept aside 
By bloody hands of the hypnotized 
Who carry the cross of homicide 
And history bears the scars of our civil wars 

"WE PRACTICE SELECTIVE ANNIHILATION OF MAYORS AND 
GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS FOR EXAMPLE TO CREATE A VACUUM 
THEN WE FILL THAT VACUUM AS POPULAR WAR ADVANTAGE 
PEACE IS CLOSER" ** 

I don't need your civil war 
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor 
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers 
In a human grocery store 
Ain't that fresh 
And I don't need your civil war 
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no 
I don't need your civil war 
I don't need your civil war 
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers 
In a human grocery store 
Ain't that fresh 
I don't need your civil war 
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no uh-oh-uh, no uh-oh, uh no 
I don't need one more war 

I don't need one more war 
No, no, no, no uh-oh-uh, no uh-oh, uh no 
WHAZ SO CIVIL 'BOUT WAR ANYWAY? 
(whistle) 


* (Strother Martin from the film Cool Hand Luke)
** (Peruvian Guerilla General)
