If you didn't really understand the rules
If you didn't even know the score
How come we went to war?
How come we went to war?

People are living now
inside their memories
How much we've all believed
and how we've been deceived
Time runs out
we all start dying
after all

If you didn't really understand the cause
If you didn't even pause for thought
How come we went to war?
How come we went to war?

People are falling down
becoming memories
Some day we'll all be grieved
too late to be relieved
Time runs out
we all start dying
after all
after all
after all
after all

I know the time will come
Just wait and see
Change is no obstacle
we can agree
Heaven is possible after all
Heaven is possible
after all
after all
