Picking my brain and I still can't find a reason for your war.
Needless to say such behvior in the past has left us warned.
No, I won't pledge my allegence and the outcome serves me right.
What about those who've bled?
Lost all sense of hope and daily fear in their lives.
Picking my brain and I'm troubled by the question: Who'll kill man?
Needless to say from our actions, answers have been made clear.
What's the protocol?
With my pride in the struggle, I pose a threat against the ruling class
In the interest of whom are many lives lost. In the interest of whom?
Take part in your war -- Fuck you. No thanks. I won't fight.
I know your lies. War. You know everything about death and you're smothering me.
I can't catch my breath; see right through you.

    General CommentYaphet Kotto are such an amazing band. I hope it's 'are' and not 'were', I can't keep up with all the breakups. So sad :( Yes but this song. So good. Hearing this song live was one of the highpoints of my life. It was right around the duct tape hysteria, when everyone was just freaking out about terrorism and waving their flags. And to hear this song, so loud and powerful and emotional, packed together with dozens of angry sweaty punks, all raising their fists...it was amazing. Yaphet Kotto are just so goddamn pure. One of the few good emo bands left.
