Civil War
Guns N' Roses Lyrics


Look at your young men fighting
Look at your women crying
Look at your young men dying
The way they've always done before

Look at the hate we're breeding
Look at the fear we're feeding
Look at the lives we're leading
The way we've always done before
My hands are tied
The billions shift from side to side
And the wars go on with brainwashed pride
For the love of God and our human rights
And all these things are swept aside
By bloody hands time can't deny
And are washed away by your genocide
And history hides the lies of our civil wars

D'you wear a black armband
When they shot the man
Who said "peace could last forever"
And in my first memories
They shot Kennedy
I went numb when I learned to see
So I never fell for Vietnam
We got the wall of D.C. to remind us all
That you can't trust freedom
When it's not in your hands
When everybody's fightin'
For their promised land
And

I don't need your civil war
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh
I don't need your civil war
Ow, oh no, no, no, no, no

Look at the shoes you're filling
Look at the blood we're spilling
Look at the world we're killing
The way we've always done before
Look in the doubt we've wallowed
Look at the leaders we've followed
Look at the lies we've swallowed
And I don't want to hear no more

My hands are tied
For all I've seen has changed my mind
But still the wars go on as the years go by
With no love of God or human rights
'Cause all these dreams are swept aside
By bloody hands of the hypnotized
Who carry the cross of homicide
And history bears the scars of our civil wars

I don't need your civil war
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh
I don't need your civil war
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
I don't need your civil war
I don't need your civil war
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh
I don't need your civil war
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no uh-oh-uh, no uh-oh, uh no
I don't need one more war

I don't need one more war
No, no, no, no uh-oh-uh, no uh-oh, uh no
Whaz so civil 'bout war anyway?

The two most important parts in this song:

And the wars go on with brainwashed pride
For the love of God and our human rights

But still the wars go on as the years go by
With no love of God or human rights

This is so fucking true.

Well , If your a seal you have learned how to swim, that would be a start.

@Reaper If what you mean by Gangsta is that they are predatory thugs and bullies then yeah they are gangsta in that they only attack what they are sure they can overwhelm just like any other predators. The only exception to that is when they have no choice like defending their territory for example. Notice the United States has NEVER directly attacked Russia or China with hard military assets nor have they done so to the US or each other. This is a fools argument if you cannot see that and also thugs and bullies have never impressed me nor do I fear them so they only use underhanded chicken shit tactics against me if they think they can do so without me knowing who did it. My comment still applies. Keep your gangsta and have a nice day.

Reaper

@Erick Randyson not true, military always gangster

Erick Randyson

I love how Axl’s voice gains weight when he delivers that very last line (of the verses); ”And I don’t want to hear no more”.
