what are we fighting for lyrics – curt smith

what are we fighting for
what am i trying to restore by taking aim at you
it’s not that i need the best
i wnat you see i long to be successfully repressed
i don’t know why we fall

what are we fighting for
why do i always ask for more than this day can provide
when did i loose your trust
why do i choose to justify this dirty little war
i don’t know why we fall

there was a time when i believed in providence
where is that confidence now
i see the world sideways and i’m falling off again
into our rarely-go-round

what am i waiting for
isn’t this where we fade to blackas you walk out the door
if i’m so d*mn sure
what are these tears i try to cheerfully ignore

there was a time when i believed in providence
where is that confidence now
i see the world sideways and i’m falling off again
into our rarely-go-round
there was a time when i thought our salvation lied
in the night’s intimate heat
my anger’s contagious my wishes outrageous
but dreams are my only relief

i’m revolving, gravity keeps calling
falling, into our rarely-go-round
into our rarely-go-round
into our rarely-go-round

(what are we fighting for)
when all the anger’s gone
who’s lost and has won
and dare we ask ourselves
who are we fighting
