Prophets of War Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

It burns deep down inside of me
We have ourselves to blame
Not questioning
Accepted as the truth

Debate this fight it's just cause
The facts do not supports theirs
To liberate a people
And rid them of tyrant rule

Is it time to make a change?
Are we closer than before?
Can we help them break away?
Are we profiting from war?

It's time to make a change?
Intrigued, got your attention
Deceived, since the inception
Our brave fight for what reason

Compelled, can we clean up this mess
The loss of loved ones a perverse request
They continue the same rhetoric
These derelicts that profit, win or lose

Is it time to make a change?
Are we closer than before?
Can we help them break away?
Are we profiting from war?

It's time to make a change?
Time for change
Fight the fear, find the truth
Time for change

The only thing that I believe
Will help us see this through is faith
Pray they will forgive, forgive our arrogance
So we can make it right, right what they have wronged

See you sweat unexpected, controversial
Get used to it, things are gonna get personal
Your sympathy, a pitiful display you stutter
Your empathy means nothing if there is no honor

Responsible of this you are incapable
We implicate, incriminate, exacerbate, too much at stake
Our fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters
Forced, perpetuating their ideals, a mindless act to stay the course

Is it time to make a change?
Are we closer than before?
Can we help them break away?
Are we profiting from war?

Is it time to make a change?
Are we closer than before?
Can we help them break away?
Are we profiting from war?

Is it time to make a change?
A change from what it's been?
Can we help them break away?
Is our patience wearing thin?

It's time to make a change?
Time for change
Fight the fear, find the truth
Time for change
