  • So you think I'm alone?
    But being alone's the only way to be
    When you step outside
    You spend life fighting for your sanity

    This is a cold war
    You better know what you're fighting for
    This is a cold war
    Do you know what you're fighting for?

    If you want to be free (if you want to be free)
    Below the ground's the only place to be
    'Cause in this life ('cause in this life)
    You spend time running from depravity

    This is a cold war
    Do you know what you're fighting for?
    This is a cold war
    You better know what you're fighting for
    This is a cold war
    You better know what you're fighting for
    This is a cold war
    Do you know what you're fighting for?

    Bring wings to the weak and bring grace to the strong
    May all evil stumble as it flies in the world
    All the tribes comes and the mighty will crumble
    We must brave this night and have faith in love

    I'm trying to find my peace (we're trying to find our peace)
    I was made to believe
    There's something wrong with me (there's nothing wrong with me)
    And it hurts my heart (it really hurts my heart)
    Lord have mercy, ain't it plain to see?

    That this is a cold war
    Do you know what you're fighting for?
    This is a cold war
    You better know what you're fighting for

    This is a cold
    This is a cold war
    You better know what you're fighting for

    (Ooh-ooh)
    Na-na-na
    Na-na-na
    Na-na-na, oh, na-na-na (there's nothing wrong with me)

    Ohh
    (Na-na-na-na-na-na)
    (Do you know what you're fighting for?)
    Do you know it's a cold, cold war? (Na-na-na-na-na-na)
    Do you? Do you? (Do you know what you're fighting for?)
    Do you? (This is a cold)
    (Na-na-na-na-na-na) ahh
    (Do you know what you're fighting for?) Ahh
    (This is a cold, na-na-na-na-na-na)
    (Do you know what you're fighting for?) Oh
    It's a cold, cold war (bye, bye, bye, bye, don't you cry when I say goodbye)
    You better know what you're fighting for

    Bye, bye, bye, bye, don't you cry when I say goodbye
    Bye, bye, bye, bye, don't you cry when I say goodbye
    Bye, bye, bye, bye, don't you cry when I say goodbye Writer/s: Charles L Joseph, Janelle Monae Robinson, Nathaniel Irvin
