"The War is Over" as written by and Kevin/fukai Palmer....
The hours devour me
My life's wasted waiting here for you
There's nothing left of me
Lost in a void I don't see
There's nothing left to believe
The end is now
I surrender

The war is over
The rain is falling
And all that's left has blown away
Your eyes are haunted
By what you wanted
I surrender (I surrender)
The war is over

The anger I keep for you
The bitter lessons I will keep for me
There's nothing I can do
To save you from your own hell
There's nothing left for you
The end is now
I surrender

The war is over
The rain is falling
And all that's left has blown away
Your eyes are haunted
By what you wanted
I surrender (I surrender)
The war is over (It's over now)

I can see it, I can see what you've become
I can feel it, as everything goes numb

The war is over
The rain is falling
And all that's left has blown away
Your eyes are haunted
By what you wanted
I surrender (I surrender)
The war is over

    General CommentI love this song, and this CD is well worth the pickup especially if you liked the first CD. This song itself seems about a breakup. I think the "war" he is referring to is the relationship. Overall it's not terribly deep, but it doesn't have to be to kick ass.

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl he loves and hes tired of always trying to get her to love him back and trying to keep her close to him and she keeps screwing everything up so hes giving up on her

    General Commentim not entirely sure what this song means, while i do agree with DarkEternal about the breakup thing, i dont necessarily think hes the one feeling the pain of it, the lyrics r "Your eyes are haunted
    by what you wanted" indicating that the other person in the relationship might be feeling the pain instead of him

    General CommentI agree with you both guys (I mean DarkEternal and Ocelot923). But to sum up the two of your opinions I would say that this song IS about a breakup or rather a reciprocate love: So, the guy is in love with a girl, but she cares no account for him and in the end he surrenders and stops trying, but some time later she falls in love with him, but, "as everything goes numb" he tells "the war is over". This is just how I personally see it, because this is exactly what happenned in my life recently. In my country in such cases they say "The train has gone"
    Cool song.
