Weary of War and Deception



Always two


Just two sides


For you to choose


White or black


Red or blue


But the answer's harder still to use


It's the leaders

of the fray

who never fight

to save the day


Don't forget

they seek power

and very soon

you're left with flowers


Off to scatter

on the graves

of the friends you lost along the way



fight for good or bad

'cause there'll be nothing left to have


Chosen hero

hurry home


You're directionless

and all alone


Friends are just more things to take


Both sides bury you with hate


Charm'd weapon


Strike me true


So they'll bury me


With you
