"The War" as written by P. B. Lianmawia, H. S. Lalruatliana, Rosangliana, and Joshua Zoramliana....
The ocean is on fire, the sky turned dark again as the boats came in
And the beaches, streched out with soldiers
With their arms and guns it has just begun

Believe
You want this
Believe
I want this too

Why won't you tell me that
It's almost over
Why must this tear my head
Inside out

And the houses laid out like targets
With the deafening sound
We watched them all go down
And the families now useless bodies
They lay still black and blue
A gift from us to you

Believe,
You want this
Believe,
I want this too

Why won't you tell me that
It's almost over
Why must this tear my head
Inside out

Believe
Believe
You want this too

Why won't you tell me that
It's almost over
Why must this tear my head
Inside out

Why won't you tell me that
It's almost over
Why must this tear my head
Inside out

    General Commenti kinda hate that this song is used as the theme for Two-a-Days.
    i mean, c'mon, this song is way deeper then a highschool football team
    it saddened me to hear it being spoonfed to all the mainstream kids who won't appriciate it for what it really is.
    still a prety kick-a song though.

    General CommentGreat song, one of my favorites.

    It's about someone who'se close to a soldier, and they're hoping and praying that their soldier comes home alive.

    Tom's brother is fighting in Iraq so its about him.
