everybody’s gone to war lyrics – nerina pallot

i’ve got a friend, he’s a pure-bred killing machine
he says he’s waited his whole d*mn life for this
i knew him well when he was seventeen
now he’s a man he’ll be dead by christmas

and so, everybody’s going to war
but we don’t know what we’re fighting for
don’t tell me it’s a worthy cause
no cause could be so worthy

if love is a drug, i guess we’re all sober
if hope is a song, i guess it’s all over
how to have faith, when faith is a crime?
i don’t want to die
i’f god’s on our side, then god is a joker
asleep on the job, his children fall over
running out through the door and straight to the sky
i don’t want to die

for every man who wants to rule the world
there’ll be a man who just wants to be free
what do we learn but what should not be learned?
too late to find a cure for this disease

and so, everybody’s going to war
but we don’t know what we’re fighting for
don’t tell me it’s a worthy cause
no cause could be so worthy

if love is a drug, i guess we’re all sober
if hope is a song, i guess it’s all over
how to have faith, when faith is a crime?
i don’t want to die
if god’s on our side, then god is a joker
asleep on the job, his children fall over
running out through the door and straight to the sky
i don’t want to die
iiii don’t want to die
ii don’t want to die
