There's a war coming down between my brothers tonight
I don't want no war
Going down, going down tonight

Stop this war
Stop this war

Civilization? Ha!
I call it as I see it
I call it bullshit
You know, I still cannot believe it
Our evolution now has gone the way of hate
A world evolved, resolved Into a stupid fate

Stop this war
Stop this war

All so different?
Yeah, I say we're all the same
All caught, you know, in the division game
Self-destruction fast impending like a bullet
No one can stop it
Once it's fired, no one can control it

Stop this war
Stop this war

A final word
Wait, it's not a call to action
We ain't no sect
No, this ain't no fuckin' faction
Unity, unity, unity, you've heard it all before
This time it's not exclusive
We wanna stop the war

Stop this war
Stop this war

Ain't nothing wrong
With another unity song
Ain't nothing wrong
With another unity song
Ain't nothing wrong
Ain't nothing wrong
Ain't nothing wrong
Ain't nothing wrong with a unity song

Stop this war
Stop this war

Unity
As one, stand together
Unity
Evolution gotta come, right
Unity
As one, stand together
Unity
Evolution gotta come
Unity
As one, stand together
Unity
Evolution gotta come
Unity
As one, stand together
Unity
Evolution gotta come

    Wow, nobody has figured out the real meaning of this song, way to go!

    It's about the scene in the East Bay. He was sick of the fighting at shows, and how the scene was divided.

    this song is exactly how my friends and i are.... we all feel that the world believes that it is different than reality... and that it needs to just come together....

    This song is probably one of op. ivy's best. even my band has done a cover of it! hehe... Some top lyrics for people so young. These guys were only in their teen when this song was out at first.

    to "startinglinechick", i think you missed the meaning behind this song somewhat, while yes i agree with you about how war is really fucked up, and that the countries should solve their matters in peace instead of violence. the "war" jesse is talking about is the war between races(black, white, asian, etc.) not what people normally think of when they hear the word "war" ...... oh by the way, if you like LoC, choking victim, f-minus, and shit like that, the check out NO-CA$H. you'll fucking love'em. go to listen.to/no-cash to hear them

    Ya I Totally Agree......this song is about the war of the races..... This song is fucking awesome one of the OPIV's best by far..... It has become a punk rock anthem and for totally good reason. OpIV is the best punk rock band of all time.......and the best band of all time in my opinion for that matter!!!!!!!!!!

    i'm not sure if this song has anything specifially about race. i think it's more about just factions and divisions in society (sometimes along race, sometimes along religion, sometimes along other lines). fight the war. opivy rocks!

    I AGREE WITH PUNKFAG. THIS IS ABOUT HUMAN TRAGEDY, WAR IS FUCKED. WE SHOULD ALL UNITE. I QUOTE J "MUSIC IS AN INDIRECT FORCE FOR CHANGE, BECAUSE IT PROVIDES AN ANCHOR AGAINST HUMAN TRAGEDY. IN THIS SENSE, IT WORKS TOWARDS A RECONCILED WORLD."
