Destruction

War

To fight in defence
Forgotten words
of friendly hate

war - destruction
war - destruction

I don't know why
A soul deceased
A broken hope
A choking breeze

war - destruction
war - destruction

Can't you take me away from your lies?

Destruction

Dark paradise
Collecting souls
To analize

war - destruction
war - destruction

The bitter blood
of a children's cry
inside the truth
far from my sky

war - destruction
war - destruction

Can't you take me away from your lies?

    General CommentIt is a beautiful song but what else do you expect from Lacuna Coil.

    I took it as wars based on lies. Something that is very common in this world.

    General CommentThis is an obvious song about war. Who is to say what the war is though? We each fight wars everyday. We fight, and we seem to always find justification for our battles. What if we were justified based on lies?

    General CommentI take it to mean something along the lines of defending yourself for so long you aren't even sure what against anymore. It also has to do with how this destroys the people around you, people who shouldn't be involved in the first place. Beautiful song, odd at first but it becomes addictive. As with most Lacuna Coil songs.

    General CommentYes I have to agree with acetica, but I think that they are saying religion is also used to justify wars. Hence the title. Is war ever truly justifiable though? I believe its unavoidable at times, but people should never decieve themselves into thinking that justice was served.
