Justification

Justification (18/12/2011)

How do you keep up with this life?
Go home and kiss your wife goodnight
How do you ever justify
The things you do
Without guilt?

Oh, Life's too special
Too sacred
There's no reason that could ever
Explain this
This senseless battle going on
This endless loss of perfect souls
Oh, There's no justification
For taking
Another life

If you claim it's for belief
I think your god
Would not be happy
Would not be happy, Oh
'Cause if this god created life
Why would he or she want it destroyed?
Oh, If you say its in self-defence
I'm sure the other side
Holds the same story

Oh, Life's too special
Too sacred
There's no reason that could ever
Explain this
This senseless battle going on
This endless loss of perfect souls
Oh, There's no justification
For taking
Another life

Don't try to pretend
Your excuses fall on deaf ears
So tell me
How do you do it?
Do you lie to yourself
Everyday?
Or does the guilt
Slowly eat away?

Oh, Life's too special
Too sacred
There's no reason that could ever
Explain this
This senseless battle going on
This endless loss of perfect souls
Oh, There's no justification
For taking
Another life

Don't try to throw me lies
You cannot justify
If this is belief
You've tainted your soul with sins
Oh
If this is self-defence
Your fuelling the fires roar

Oh, But this is rarely the case
Anymore
Greed corrupts
Ongoing dictators
Who just don't care
Don't understand

Oh, Life's too special
Too sacred
There's no reason that could ever
Explain this
This senseless battle going on
This endless loss of perfect souls
Oh, There's no justification
For taking
Another life

For taking
Another life
There's no justification
For this bloodshed
For this cruelty
For this suffering
For this
War 

The End
