The moon is full and I'm awake
And I don't know how much
I can take
Before I get too angry to be sad
Too many people thinkin' mean
Good ones few and far between
Takin' out on you
What they never had

It's a war, war
War any more
It's a war, war
War every day
You've got to keep your guard up
If someone else is hard up
He'll try to steal your dreams away

Once I thought of compassion as
A feelin' everybody has
Do unto others
That's the golden rule
But I found to my regret
People I had never met
Were out to get me--I was just a fool

It's a war, war
War any more
It's a war, war
War every day
You've got to keep your guard up
If someone else is hard up
He'll try to steal your dreams away
