How many more are gonna fall before we realise?
How many more arms will be made before they save a life?
How many more innocent souls will be sent down to the grave?
How many more towns will be torn down to pave their way?

How many times does it need to be said?
that they cant be trusted, they cant be trained.
Have you ever seen them with their names
etched into a plaque on the fallens grave?
Behind closed doors it will never end if we
continue to lend a hand in the secondary lies that we spread.

Have they ever done what they promised the world,
or did they just say it for fun?
Do they negotiate with themselves,
or are they just too afraid?

Why do we ever listen to those?
The record's still broken, same stories told.
How many more are hired to kill?
in the fight for freedom, to be king of the hill
Seeing the death rise in their dreams.
Sleeping like a baby while the whole world weeps.
Tucked away from the sound of the screams.
This feeling goes round in our heads.
Repeating the mixed views that we're fed.
Another contradiction that unless we keep the
tapes will be never be seen.

How many sick jokes before the nation is split?
One's hating the other while the order is met.
How many times does it need to be seen
that they hate straight questions they dont answer them clean

how many times do we need to be warned?
how many more will die tonight?

how many times do we need to be told?
they're pulling out the troops, they're not coming back
