spoonboy – this is war lyrics


we took our cues from the side of the road
and took the billboards as signs
that cast an omniscient shadow
that by design, seemed to imply cooperation

and while trying to find the words to say
“this doesn’t represent us”
we poured over maps and in dawned on me
that this is war

we hadn’t cast the first stone
their tactics had been subtle
no one around even knew they were in battle
but it was war

and no one wants to think in black and white
but a decision had been made for me
as though a matter of instinct
and made against my will; cooperation

and it had dawned on me that this is war
and we might have to chose sides
and it was war, war…
this was war
