Lyrics

Conquerors and Liberators

So this is the day you’ve been waiting for
And they say it’s the way it has to be
It’s hard to believe people pray for war
It’s hard to believe in war for peace

Conquerors and Liberators, Presidents and dictators
What’s the difference I don’t know
I guess it’s who you choose to overthrow
Conquerors and Liberators, Presidents and dictators
It just depends which side you’re on
Cause it’s not about who’s right about what’s wrong

So how can we call ourselves civilized
If this is the best we can be
And when is brutality justified
And how can any ends ever justify these means

Conquerors and Liberators, Presidents and dictators
What’s the difference I don’t know
I guess it’s where you’re from and where you go
Conquerors and Liberators, rescuers or invaders
It just depends which side you’re on
Cause it’s not about who’s right about what’s wrong
So wrong....

And the sun comes up on another day
And the tv shows me another face
Of some mother’s child who died today
Because our leaders couldn’t see it any other way

Conquerors and Liberators, murderers or brave saviors
It just depends which side you’re on
If you’re the one that history smiles upon
Conquerors and Liberators, rescuers or invaders
It just depends which side you’re on
If you’re the one who feels or drops the bombs
Conquerors and Liberators, Presidents and dictators
What’s the difference I don’t know
I guess it’s who you choose to overthrow
Conquerors and Liberators
It just depends which side you’re on
Because it’s not about who’s right about what’s wrong
Sooo wrong....

So this is the day you’ve been waiting for.........
