This War

This War – Sting – Playlist

You’ve got the mouth of a she wolf

Inside the mask of an innocent lamb

You say your heart is all compassion

But there’s just a flat line on your cardiogram….

…There’s a war on our democracy

A war on our dissent

There’s a war inside religion

And what Jesus might have meant

There’s a war on mother nature

A war upon the seas

There’s a war upon the forests

On the birds and the bees

There’s a war on education

A war on information

A war between the sexes

And every nation

A war on our compassion

A war on understanding

A war on love and life itself

It’s war that they’re demanding

Make it easy on yourself

And don’t do nothing
