Authority Zero – A Thousand Years Of War lyrics

Throughout the generations flags of peace and treaties sworn
A decade passes by it's just the calm before the storm
An age-old situation that it seems may never end
Round and round we go and round and round we go again
What we see hides out in the grotto
What we do comes back around to follow
All these things, when will we see?
It's pouring out of the lands

In a thousand years of war
A thousand lives are torn
A thousand bullets hit the ground
A thousand mothers mourn
The glass if half empty and the barrels half full
The aristocracy paid by the death toll
And both sides still rockin' their beliefs
The crooked politicians and the fucked up police
From this worldly hell I need a release
I can't believe they all died for a little grease

Throughout the generations flags of peace and treaties sworn
But history has proven that it's just the calm before the storm
Something's gone on for way too long and that's one thing for sure
A constant game of tug o' war
I'm asking what's it all for?

A thousand years of war
Can you tell me who wins a war?
And what's the outcome in the end?
It's not a fairytale ending paved with happiness and joy
We've got another thing coming
What's it for? Tells the fate of our tomorrow
What's the score? Another round is sure to follow
As for the innocent standing out in the streets
Take cover, it's another dead end

Lines in sand, lies and demands
You think you see it coming
Got another thing comin'
Take cover it's another dead end

(Round and around and around we go)
Pandemonium, confusion, hysteria, when's it going to end?
Stop all the fighting and stop all the war
Stop all the fighting it's kind of hard to ignore
Stop all the fighting can't you see it's dead end?
Can you see it's dead end?
