Chris Cornell – Unholy War lyrics

From the start of life
To your dying day
In the dark of night
And in the burning light of day
It's a bloody fight
And you can't walk away
There's no rest in sight
And I struggle just to slave
I'm tired of living on the front line
Of this

[Chorus:]
Unholy war, unholy war
We try, we fight, until we die
Unholy war, unholy war
You see, you know, you'll always be
Unholy

I see your burning fuse
From a mile away
You take the world's abuse
Then you bow your head in shame
You gotta learn to bite the hand
That pulls your chain
There's too much sanity
It will make you go insane
I'll fight when we're all on the same side

Of this

Unholy war, unholy war
We try to fight until we die
Unholy

When you're all alone - unholy
With your thoughts of pain - unholy
You're a burning fuse - unholy
Can you break the strings? - unholy

You're shaking in your boots
You met your end today [?]
Try walking in my shoes
You'll see we've all got hell to pay
And we got battle wounds
In the lion's cage
We'll all be w's
Beneath the numbers on the page [?]
As we cry til the battle is over
