"War Of The Worlds" as written by and Samuel Lloyd Duckworth....
If this is the war of the worlds,
Then I don't want to be a part.
If this is the war of the worlds,
Then I don't want to be a part.

Too busy, too busy, too busy
To talk, you said I wouldn't know.
Too busy, too busy, too busy
To understand its time to go.
And so the next time that you need me don't expect a call.

And this is the weight of the worlds,
I think it's time for us to part.
And this is the weight of the worlds,
I think it's time for us to part.

Too busy, too busy, too busy
To talk, you said I wouldn't know.
Too busy, too busy, too busy
To understand it's time to go.
And so the next time that you need me don't expect a call.

And we're willing to waste away, like this.
When everything's gone okay til you've gone a miss.
And all I could be, everything you want me to be.
But we haven't spoke in days,
Yet infact it's been a matter of weeks.
And so the next time that you need me don't expect a call

    General Commentoh gosh why hasn't this been commented?? well I guess this song is about a relationship where suddenly the girl has gotten busy with stupid things and the other person keeps putting effort in to try and spend some time with her but she's much too busy for them and kind of forgets and neglects their relationship/friendship. Thye haven't spoken in ages and when like someone keeps trying to hold thigns together and puts effort in without getting anything in return they kind of give up because it should be a 2 way thing... why bother to put any effort in for someone who won't for you? It's also saying that when the person stops being so busy they won't always be there when they actually need them - people aren't just there for the time when you need them, you should be there for them too.

    so after all the neglect the relationship drifts apart without her realising and when she actually has time they won't be there - people can wait, but they can't stand around waiting forever.

    well thats just my take on it.... it reminds me of how I can be soemtimes with my guy best friend... I get really busy with waitressing and work and often have to let him down even when I haven't seen or spoken to him in ages.. since we stud at different places and live a little while away from eachother... when i heard this song it hit me and i felt so bad that i was neglecting hi and it really hit me when I had to let him down cause i had a shift he said "aw... we never spend time together anymore.." after all that I made sure I made lots of effort because you don't realise things or know how much things mean to you until you miss them or lose them. sorry for the life story! deffs a brilliant song xxxxx

    General CommentThis song reminds me of how I've lost contact with my friends from school in the last 6 months. Someone who I believed was my closest friend has hardly spoken to me and no longer has time for me, yet I know that if she wants something she will get back in touch. This song could describe a relationship, or a friendship.

    General CommentActually, this guy writes protest songs, so it's probably literally about a war.

    General CommentIn an interview, Sam said that this song relates to a relationship when it has reached the point where you are completely co-depenant on one another. When you reach this point you have to ask yourself what am I doing in this position when before we got on just fine alone. But now its gotten to the point where if one person does something it effects the other to the extent of it being the end of the world! So wouldn't it be just better if they went thier seperate ways??
    I was just wondering if the lyrics on the second verse are 'If this is the weight of the words' kinda sounds more like it. dunno may be wrong

    General CommentTo me, this song is about two friends [or a relationship]. One who really cares about the other. One person really puts in effort, but the other one isnt as bothered. And in the end the person who is putting in the effort just gives up, realises the other doesnt care about them and it isnt worth continuing with.

    General Commentnaaninn, when somethings gone amiss, it means it's gone wrong. If my schoolwork went amiss, it has changed for the worse.
