you must plan and you must train
for the battle you don't want
to defend what you love
that's how the war begins

so when you walk away
leaving the killing fields
you will be soon aware
what you have lost

CHORUS
peace is impossible
no matter what it seems
someone's killing someone
even in your dreams


you can't give them a reason
you can't tell them the truth
they are so convinced
to know what to do

so when you walk away......

people are not very wise
don't know their limitations
don't know what death means
when they play their dirty games

so when you walk away...

    General CommentThis song has a really driving sound to it. It makes me shiver a little when I'm listening to it.
