The Decemberists – This Is Why We Fight lyrics

Come the war
Come the avarice
Come the war
Come hell

Come attrition
Come the reek of bones
Come attrition
Come hell

This is why, why we fight - why we lie awake
This is why, this is why we fight
And when we die, we will die
With our arms unbound
This is why, this is why we fight
Come hell

Bride of quiet
Bride of all unquiet this
Bride of quiet
Bride of hell

Come the archers
Come the infantry
Come the archers

This is why, why we fight - why we lie awake
This is why, this is why we fight
And when we die, we will die
With our arms unbound
This is why, this is why we fight
Come hell, come hell

This is why, why we fight - why we lie awake
This is why, this is why we fight
And when we die, we will die
With our arms unbound
This is why, this is why we fight
So come to me, come to me now
Lay your arms around me
This is why, this is why we fight
Come hell, come hell
Come hell, come hell
