Lyrics

The War You Wanted
Well, I’m not the wisest man
Don’t have the best of plans
I’ve said and done to my regret
I guess you haven’t learned that lesson yet

I cast my judgments to the side
Looking for the line of truth there in your eyes
Now me I don’t have much to hide
I know the fault line of my pride

But now the war that you wanted
Calls to finish what you started
You gonna be hard-hearted, go on
Don't be surprised when it come around
You find your face flat to the ground
And you're wondering what the sound is you'll know
You’ll know

Man, I’ve seen this all before
You was in a loosing game when you walked in through the door
It’s kinda hard to keep a score
Lying there flat-faced on the floor

And now the war that you wanted
Calls to finish what you started
Gonna be hard-hearted, go on
Don't be surprised when it come around
You find your face flat to the ground
And you're wondering what the sound is you'll know

You’ll know, you’ll know
You’ll know, you’ll know

And now the war that you wanted
Calls to finish what you started
Gonna be hard-hearted, go on
Don't be surprised when it come around
You find your face flat to the ground
And you're wondering what the sound is you'll know

And now the war that you wanted
Calls to finish what you started
Gonna be hard-hearted, go on
Don't be surprised when it come around
You find your face flat to the ground
And you're wondering what the sound is you'll know
Yeah, you’re wondering what the sound is you’ll know
You’ll know
You’ll know
You’ll know
