"This War Is Ours (The Guillotine II)" as written by John Feldmann and Writers Unknown....
We have to find a better way
Out of this tragedy
As the battle rages on
Blood stains the ground we're on
My ears hear only screams
Brave soldiers are dying
One spartan stands alone and shouts
This war is ours.

This war is ours!

Yes, I will see you
Through the smoke and flames
On the front lines of war
We have to find a better way
And I will stand my ground until the end
Till we conquer them all
We have to find a better way.

Through the fire and the flames
A sea of dead drives men insane
We march the fight into the cold
This is as far as it will go
The battle ends on top of here
This is where we conquer fear
On blackout armed with our swords
This war is ours.
Yeah.
This war is ours.

Yes, I will see you
Through the smoke and flames
On the front lines of war
We have to find a better way
And I will stand my ground until the end
Till we conquer them all
We have to find a better way.

Till we conquer them all
We have to find a better way.
Till we conquer them all!

Yes I will meet you.
Through the smoke and flames
On the front lines of war
And I will stand my ground until the end
Till we conquer them all.

We will conquer them all

We will conquer them all

We will conquer them all

This war is ours!
Yeah!
This war is ours!

Yes, I will see you
Through the smoke and flames
On the front lines of war

And I will stand my ground until the end
Till we conquer them all

So I will fight my battle till I fall
And I conquer them all
Till we conquer them all
War! [Repeat: x7]

Go, yeah!
This is war!
War! [Repeat: x7]
This is war!

    General Commentumm to the people say this song is about halo, just because it says spartan doesn't mean its about halo. you know spartans were real, way back during the times of the greeks.

    anyways I think that this song could be about Battle of Thermopylae (Battle of the 300 Spartans), just about spartans in general, or maybe about just war. they could just use spartan as a way of showing respect to a courageous soldier. but about Halo? I don't see it.

    General Commentok for every retard thinking this song isnt about halo then checkout the lyrics.

    My ears hear only screams
    Brave soldiers are dying - this is about the other soldiers dying around him

    One Spartan stands alone and shouts
    This war is ours.
    This war is ours! - masterchief


    A sea of dead, drives men insane - the flood

    The battle ends on top of here
    This is where we conquer fear
    On blackout armed with our swords - there is a map called blackout also the swords (energy swords)

    there u have it people this song is about halo

    General CommentI remember i got an issue of AP and it was talking about anticipated albums and ETF was one of the bands featured. I was so excited when i read there was going to be a guillotine part 2. Then the whole Ronnie thing happened but when i saw this song was still apart of the new cd i was sooo happy!

    General Commenthaha i never realized this or the original was about halo. i didnt really know the lyrics but when i read covenant and spartans i was like holy crap. but i think this song was also to combine some elements of their older songs, such as the "Find a better way" parts like in My Apocalypse (which, in my opinion is the best escape song ever)

    General Commenti agree with microwave. My apocalypse was their best ever. The only song i can actually play by them and thats why. Its just amazing. An yeah thats exactly what i thought when i heard this song. Also i noticed "Through The Fire And The Flames" and the solo kinda sounds dragonforce-ish. if that makes sense lol.

    General CommentThis song is awesome, the riffs throughout the song are sick, definitely get you pumped.

    Gotta agree with the rest of you guys on "My Apocalypse", that song never gets old.

    And yes, we all know the song is about Halo. Long live Escape the Fate!
