"What Are We Fighting For?" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
Battleflag in the bassinet
Oil and blood on the bayonet
Crowded downtown, hit the floor

What are we fighting for?
What are we fighting for?

The world got smaller but the bombs got bigger
Holocaust on a hairpin trigger
Ain't no game so forget the score

What are we fighting for?
What are we fighting for?

What will I tell my daughter?
What will you tell your son?
Where were all the doves?
That we were nothing but a shadow

A faceless generation devoid of love?
The crucifix ain't no baseball bat
Tell me what kind of god is that?
Ain't nothin' more godless than war

So what are we fighting for?
What are we fighting for? (...)
