I been knockin' the walls down
Tryin' to get to you
But I won't wait forever
Ya gotta let me thru
Now I been diplomatic
But I don't know what for
''cause you hurt me, now just watch me
''cause I won't take no more

This means war--and you will see it's senseless
This means war--and soon you'll be defenseless
''cause you can't win this war

There will be no replacements
Ya better get your gun
Because I'm comin' after you
For everything you done
And then when you are captured
It won't be like before
''cause you teased me, deceived me
But this is what's in store

This means war--and you will see it's senseless
This means war--and soon you'll be defenseless
''cause you can't win this war

You avoid reality in the calm before the storm
It hurts me so to fight with you
But since you closed the door

This means war--and you will see it's senseless
This means war--and soon you'll be defenseless
''cause you can't win this war

This means war--and you will see it's senseless
This means war--and soon you'll be defenseless
''cause you can't win this war

You can't win this war
You can't win this war
