This is killing us
Fighting the truth a losing battle
We believe in nothing
Just hatred for each other

Tragic sinister serenade
Twisted melody shatters reality
Dying hopes for a better day
Fragile dreams that break away

No more, no more
This pain must end

We have chosen to suffer
Believe in nothing but...

Hatred is a vicious circle
Betrayal is at hand
Paralysed souls bleeding
Begging for salvation
Deeper and deeper the wounds we cut
The truth burning our flesh
Silent war to set us free
Stigmata of a tragedy

No more, no more
This pain must end

We have chosen to suffer
Feeling nothing but hate
It's eating us up from the inside
Taking our feelings away

    General CommentThis is the ultimate anti-war song...basically referring to how some of us don't even know what they're fighting for in the war, yet we still let them fight and millions lose their lives but we still wait and let it happen.

    General Commentthe big war is in ourselves. this is why we kill each other. that is why "silent wars" will set us free. once we know ourselves, we will be free.

    also going to blame religion with Stigmata of a tragedy (When objects or people "feel" Jesus's pain) which is ironic because a slave would have a stigma, meaning a mark or brand as might have been used to mark a slave.

    Silent war to set us free
    Stigmata of a tragedy

    religion is a tragedy, making us its slave
    and the fight for freedom is in ourselves

    General CommentI don't think it has as much to do with religion though as it does wars within ourselves. It's kind of like we're all subconciously branded with love for a war we don't know why we're fighting other than the sheer reason of hate and because we can. If we couldn't feel the hate, we'd have no motive for the war. Recognizing this within ourselves can make us take a step back and stop fighting for such a worthless reason.

    "No more, no more,
    This pain must end"

    I think it's showing how rediculous our motives are.
