Lights out on the street tonight
Walking alone in the fading light
Vague sounds of a distant band
The desperate howls of a one night stand
Thin smile and clenching fist
Scoping tags like sniffing piss
Stay in control as the tension mounts
Magnetic pull from north to south
And I wish I had the resolution
Skills to walk away
It never happens quite that way
Do you want to start a war?

Base thump on the stereo
Tongue tied and I want to know
Cut and dried, I'm all cut up
Sting like amphetamines and ready to go
And I wish I had the resolution
Skills to walk away
It never happens quite that way
Do you want to start a war?

Do you want to stand up and keep your head held high?
Can you place yourself on the other side?
Do you remember what you're fighting for?
Do you really want to start a war?
Always searching for some answers or some cigarettes
I'd be happy either way.
Do you want to start a war?
