warfair lyrics – clawfinger

do you know how it feels to be down in the dirt
with a bullet in your breast and blood on your shirt?
lying in a bloodpool, down a pit…
covered with the corpse and the blood and the sh*t!

how does it feel to have a gun at your head
when you know that you’d be much better off dead?
looking right down through the barrel of a gun…
don’t try to tell me that you think it’s fun!

prayin’ for your mercy, don’t say you see the light
what difference does it make if the good lord’s right?
at the end of the war, the survivors are none
because a war is a loss… a war can’t be won!

you’re just another soldier and you’re doing the dyin’
you’re a symbol of a nation… so, boy, stop crying.
hero of a war, such a man so brave
a medal’s worth nothin’ when you’re lyin’ in your grave!

(chorus:)
do you know the pain… marching into history, marching into war?
can you feel the shame… marching into misery? you function as a wh*r*!
do you know the pain… marching into history, marching into war?
can you feel the shame?

war… fair!… war… fair!…

5 o’clock in the morning and they shout out your name
but they don’t… really care,’cos you all look the same.
now this… is the army, and we train to kill
our job is to give you that fighting… will!

so, get off your knees and stand straight like a man
do i have to tell you twice to make you understand?
freedom has a price, and that price is blood
so chase the motherf*cker right down in the mud!

(chorus:)

war… fair!… war… fair!… war… fair!… war… fair!…

ignore all your feelings, just go alle the way
’cause if you don’t, then death… is the price you have to pay.
this ain’t peace and love, no, man, this is war!
so don’t… even ask what you’re fightin’ for!

just search and destroy, never question a lie
you don’t… wanna bite the bullet, boy, you don’t wanna die.
don’t try to tell me that you couldn’t kill a man
that’s a load of f*cking bullsh*t, boy, i know you can!

(chorus:)
