Tell Me Why

This is s new song by one of my favorite bands, P.O.D.

It's what most Americans have wanted to say for years, but can't for fear of being called unpatriotic.

A day without glory, a heart filled with fear
still repeating his story to make ourselves clear.
A voice is unheard when it shouts from the hills.
Your king in his castle never died on these fields.
There's blood on your hands,
a smile on your face.
A wicked intention when there's money to be made.
A room with no windows
and a heart that can't feel.
Shame with no convictions and a view to a kill.

Tell me why?
Why must we fight?
And why must we kill in the name of what we think is right?
No more! No war!
Cause how do you know?

The hate in your eyes,
the lies on your tongue.
A hand that kills the innocent
so quick to do wrong.
Your belly is full while we fight for what remains.
The rich getting richer
while the poor become slaves.
We kill our own brothers.
The truth is never told.
If victory is freedom, then the truth is untold.
Surrender your soul just like everyone else.
If love is my religion, don't speak for myself.

Tell me why?
Why must we fight?
And why must we kill in the name of what we think is right?
No more! No war!
Cause how do you know?

How do you know?

Tell me why?
Why must we fight?
And why must we kill in the name of what we think is right?
No more! No war!
Cause how do you know?

I'm living this life.
I'm given these lies.
And how can I die in the name
of what you think is right?
No more! Oh Lord!
How do we know?
