committed to life lyrics – asian dub foundation

i’ll be honest with you
i hate war in all its forms
physical, psychological, spiritual
emotional, environmental
i hate war

and i hate having to struggle, i, i, i honestly do
because i, i wish i had been the into a world where it’s unnecessary
this context of struggle and being a warrior and being a struggler
has been forced on me by oppression

otherwise i would be a, a sculptor, or a gardener, carpenter
you know, i would be free to be so much more

i guess part of me or a part of who i am, a part of what i do
is being a warrior, a reluctant warrior, a reluctant struggler
but, i do it because i’m committed to life
we can’t avoid it, we can’t run away from it

because to do that is to be cowardice
to do that is to be subservient to devils, subservient to evil
and so that the only way to live on this planet
with any human dignity at the moment is to struggle

i’ll be honest with you
i hate war in all its forms
physical, psychological, spiritual
emotional, environmental
i hate war

and i hate having to struggle, i, i, i honestly do
because i, i wish i had been the into a world where it’s unnecessary
this context of struggle and being a warrior and being a struggler
has been forced on me by oppression

i guess part of me or a part of who i am, a part of what i do
is being a warrior, a reluctant warrior, a reluctant struggler
but, i do it because i’m committed to life
we can’t avoid it, we can’t run away from it

because to do that is to be cowardice
to do that is to be subservient
