Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

A warning to the people, the good and the evil
This is war
To the soldier, the civilian, the martyr, the victim
This is war

It's the moment of truth and the moment to lie
And the moment to live and the moment to die
The moment to fight, the moment to fight,
To fight, to fight, to fight

To the right to the left
We will fight to the death
To the edge of the earth,
It's a brave new world from the last to the first
To the right, to the left,
We will fight to the death
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world, it's a brave new world

(Whoa oh, whoa oh)

A warning to the prophet, the liar, the honest
This is war
To the leader, the pariah, the victor, the messiah
This is war

It's the moment of truth and the moment to lie
And the moment to live and the moment to die
The moment to fight, the moment to fight,
To fight, to fight, to fight

To the right, to the left,
We will fight to the death
To the edge of the earth,
It's a brave new world from the last to the first
To the right, to the left,
We will fight to the death
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world, it's a brave new world, it's a brave new world

I do believe in the light, raise your hands up to the sky
The fight is done, the war is won, lift your hands towards the sun
Towards the sun, (it's the moment of truth and the moment to lie
It's the moment to live and the moment to die, the moment to fight)
Towards the sun,
Towards the sun, (it's the moment of truth and the moment to lie
It's the moment to live and the moment to die, the moment to fight)
The war is won (to fight, to fight, to fight, to fight)

To the right, to the left,
We will fight to the death
To the edge of the earth,
It's a brave new world from the last to the first
To the right, to the left,
We will fight to the death
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world, it's a brave new world, it's a brave new world

A brave new world
The war is won
The war is won
A brave new world

How can a human soul die? - through departure, a conscious SPIRIT leaves it`s clothing/body = a soul died. The word; "DYING" means just LEAVING or CHANGING REALMS. This word: "DYING" never carried the proof of stop existing. We, humans are considered LIVING SOULS only when all 3 parts of us (SPIRIT + SOUL + BODY) is together. After death aka leaving earth, we are JUST SPIRITS, considered naked as we are without body (carnal or spiritual). It is wise to live like there be no another day for us on this earth, even though we were given 120 years for a lifetime, still not a single second is promised. Well, our earthly lives are just a test in reality and as we read the BBILE (KJV) , we clearly see that, generations after generations, mankind had trials again and again, both, the real CHRISTIANS and the wicked ones. Therefore we ain´t expected ti live goodly without a reasons: no, our living goodly is a real life proof to GOD, that we wish to have life and have it more abundantly . But don`t be a fool, living good ain´t meaning, becoming rich and famous and bitter and full of hate and laziness, no, our good lives - means, being willing to suffer for CHRIST sake and for the gospels sake. We must REPENT AND BORN AGAIN to even start living up to the standards of a good lives. A change must take place in both places, in the mind and in the heart. A carnal mind must become spiritual mind and a cold stone`y heart, must start to beat warmly again. "Help others, protect and care for the beautiful planet we live upon, do no harm...Not because you're promised eternal paradise or threatened with eternal torment. Some people have such juvenile thinking." - help if you TRULY CAN, usually we cant, that`s why GOD ask us to place into HIS hands all the worries of this life. In reality, GOD do promise eternal life to all those, who believe and trust in HIM sincerely. (A CHILD LIKE FAITH = PURE FAITH). and we all are warned, not threatened, with a place, known as GOD`S prison, HELL and the LAKE OF FIRE. GOD ain`t a man that HE can sin, so why are we, you, me and others even dare to think that we, with our wicked and life destroying sins shall be allowed into HEAVEN or on the NEW EARTH? Will the HEAVEN still remain HEAVEN then? - NO. Will the NEW EARTH still remain a PARADISE (for there is summer forever and never have there a nighttme ever again= PARADISE aka NEW EARTH). - the answer is still NO, both places will then be ruined and transformed into the same "HELL" has we already have here and now, last 2000 and even more years.
Our only way back home/HEAVEN is through GOD`S only begotten SON – JESUS CHRIST.

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
Genesis 8:22 (KJV)

Father please grant salvation to our unsaved loved ones and all the unsaved. Deliver those in bondage. Protect us and our loved ones. Guide us Father and us to bear good fruit and plenty of it. Its been so tough lately for so many. So many enemy attacks but you said in your word that the battle belongs to the Lord. Please rise up Lord. We need you. Father please send the Holy Spirit for Jesus' sake. Praise and glory and honor be unto you. I pray in your holy name Lord Jesus. Amen - Beautiful prayer – isn´t it?

LIVING SOUL – LEARN MORE - THE HARSH TRUTH OUT THERE.

John 8:32|View whole chapter|See verse in context
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

This world was never what we thought it was, nor it will never be what we wish it be.
Exodus 14:14|View whole chapter|See verse in context
The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Hosea 4:6 View whole chapter See verse in context
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

ALL THAT MATTERS IS TO BE KNOWN BY GOD. How can one do so? - by building up the relationship.
Pray soul of a human, pray, that`s all you can do, that`s all there is to do.



@jaket2k927

Yeah, like plenty of songs and music videos portray soldiers as Nazis, Fascist, Murderers.

But they don't just protest the war itself.

I once worked along side a man who probably would have aimed a rifle at my dad. This guy was kind, hard working, and yet he was the enemy of my country 50 years ago.

I feel both him and my late dad would have probably had long talks. I know he was in a battle against another guy at the same place and they cannot work with each other and would get into fights.

I can understand their pain on both sides. Both had to fight for their countries causes and watched those they knew die around them and suffer.

Next war we enter I vote we don't send kids. We send the assholes who wanna sit in chairs collecting 7 figures off the people.

12 years old and still gives me the feels, such an amazing song.

@DavidS-wm9ud

I know this is old, but it's timeless. It couldn't be more succinctly appropriate for the world in which we presently live.

@thevarietychannelofyoutube4769

Agreed. Why do people hate this band again?

@jenniferthomas8804

​@@thevarietychannelofyoutube4769 Probably because they speak/sing Truth. Truth is bitter, but then again so is medicine. 🤷‍♀️ Stay strong y'all❤. It's gonna be a messy process but we will heal this species💞
