Holy War

  • If war is holy and sex is obscene
    We've got it twisted in this lucid dream
    Baptized in boundaries, schooled in sin
    Divided by difference, sexuality and skin

    Oh, so we can hate each other and fear each other
    We can build these walls between each other
    Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
    Keep yourself locked in, yourself locked in
    Yeah, we can hate each other and fear each other
    We can build these walls between each other
    Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
    Keep yourself locked in, yourself locked

    Oh, maybe we should love somebody
    Oh, maybe we could care a little more
    So maybe we should love somebody
    Instead of polishing the bombs of holy war

    What if sex was holy and war was obscene
    And it wasn't twisted, what a wonderful dream
    Living for love, unafraid of the end
    Forgiveness is the only real revenge

    Oh, so we can heal each other and fill each other
    We can break these walls between each other
    Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
    Keep yourself open, yourself open
    Yeah, we can heal each other and fill each other
    We can break these walls between each other
    Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
    Keep yourself open, you're open

    So maybe we should love somebody
    Maybe we could care a little more
    So maybe we should love somebody
    Instead of polishing the bombs of holy war

    What if love is holy and hate obscene
    We should give life to this beautiful dream
    'Cause peace and love ain't so far
    If we nurse our wounds before they scar
    Nurse our wounds before they scar Writer/s: Carlo Montagnese, Alicia Augello-Cook, Billy Walsh
