Pain Of Salvation – Winning A War lyrics

[music: daniel gildenlæw/daniel magdic]
[lyrics: daniel gildenlæw]

Once there was a world out on these fields, that was untouched.
Grateful for it's love we thanked the earth that gave so much.
And oh, I loved it so!
Once there was a pair of eyes, unbroken just like my heart.
Belonging to a father and his son, now torn apart.
And oh, I loved him so!

"Why, mommy? Tell me why daddy is walking away - leaving me!"

I remember birds of pray, dark shadows piercing the ground!
Faceless men came shouting about a pride to which we were bound.
And oh, I searched for him so!
"Faith darling, have faith my son! Your daddy is winning a war..."
"...for you!"

Daddy need me, love and lead me.
Your superseding war won't feed me!

Watch fathers and sons pale cling to their guns.
Marching line by line leaving reason behind.
Their eyes now tensed with fear; enemies are near.
But all armies are only fathers and sons...

Earth bleeding through their proceeding.
All greedy voltures are needing.
WAR! WAR! Dad - who is winning a war?
And dad - who is it for?
I won't she'd a tear - I won't show no fear!
Won't disappoint you dad (all greedy voltures need war)
...I'll shut down...

...but daddy, I miss you so.
And I need you here - dad I'm alone here and

Daddy need me, love and lead me.
Your superseding war won't feed me.
