    There is a war going on
    A war of the worst Kind
    Mother's killing daughters
    Father fighting against mothers
    In the east and the west
    There is a war going on
    Black Killing white
    White killing Color
    Man Killing earth
    There is a war going on
    Internal
    There are no more moves left
    Your queen is open
    The bishop is raping you
    There's a war going on
    Homeless men have the secret to life
    LISTEN
    THERE IS A WAR GOING ON:
    127
    22
    209
    Nafta
    Chiapas
    227
    A war of the worst kind
    There is a war going on
    They will not say
    PEACE
    And
    SECURITY
    It will come like the sounding of SEVEN horsemen
    There's a war going on
    WATCH OUT
    Might be in the middle of it
    There is a war going on
    Corner Genocide
    And a Church Missing
    2 by 2 on every other corner
    Weight moved like clock work
    There is a war going on
    There is a war going on
    Egun CAN NOT HELP ALL SOULS
    From the genocide
    And the Church Missing
    There is a war going on
    There is a war going on
    There's a war going on
    Stop it
    Stop it
    STOP

    The war has infiltrated our families
    Mother against
    Daughter
    Father against son
    Killing of our own seed
    As we’re plunged in a state of anarchy
    There is a war going on

    Drive by shootings
    Innocent lost
    Guilty gets away
    Tragedies of war
    Gangs trade in their colors
    For badges and department issued weapons
    To take out honest civilians
    There is a war going on

    America under siege
    By it’s own government
    Fighting a war
    That doesn’t have to be
    Sequel to daddy Bush
    Meanwhile country is held hostage
    Looking for a terrorist
    Who’s on the government payroll
    In city hall
    In the governor’s mansion
    In the casa blanca
    There’s a war going on

    Church bells ringing
    But can’t be heard
    The noise of the war
    Too great
    Spies have crept in
    Hold parishioners hostage
    Keeping the Gospel from being spread
    Separation between church and state
    Places of worship
    Now places of occupation
    False prophets
    Charging for salvation that comes free
    War is going on
    Everyone is a casualty
    There is no victor
    Except death.
