Well I got trapped in a war that wasn’t even mine
And I was forced to choose between the worst of the good and the best of the bad
And when you write your thoughts you’re also burning bridges and closing doors

An eye for an eye will make the whole world go blind
A tooth for a tooth won’t let me shut up your mouth
They make us play their game
They know how to divide and conquer
But when the fire is over it’s just you and me again

We saw you throw the stone and then hide away in your comfort zone
And every foe you kill will be seen as a hero by your kids
You’ll see them on your walls
You’ll see their statues everywhere you go

An eye for an eye will make the whole world go blind
A tooth for a tooth won’t let me shut up your mouth
They make us play their game
They know how to divide and conquer
But when the fire is over it’s just you and me again

An eye for an eye will make the whole world go blind
A tooth for a tooth won’t let me shut up your mouth
They make us play their game
They know how to divide and conquer
But when the fire is over it’s just you and me again
