Lyrics & Music by Steven Harris
Album: A Matter of Life and Death
mortiferi
Are you a man of peace or a man of holy war?
Too many sides to you don't know which anymore
So many full of life but also filled with pain
Don't know just how many will live to breathe again.
A life that's made to breath destruction or defence
A mind that's vain, corruption bad or good intent
A wolf in sheep's clothing or saintly or sinner
Or some that would believe a holy war winner..

They fire off many shots and many parting blows
Their actions beyond a reasoning -only God would know.
And as He lies in Heaven or it could be in Hell
I feel He's somewhere here or looking from below
But I don't know
– I don't know

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is.

More pain and misery in the history of mankind
Sometimes it seems more like the blind leading the blind
It brings upon us more a famine, death and war
You know religion has a lot to answer for

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is

And as they search to find the bodies in the sand
They find its ashes that are scattered across the land
And as the spirits seem to whistle on the wind
A shot is fired somewhere another war begins

And all because of it you'd think that we would learn
But still the body count the city fires burn
Somewhere there's someone dying In a foreign land
Meanwhile the world is crying stupidity of man!
Tell me why,
tell me why..

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what ware is
Again, tell me what life is..

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is

For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God..

For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God…

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is.


Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well, tell me now what war is
Again, tell me what life is!

For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God..

For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God,
For the greater good of God..

He gave his life for us He fell upon the cross
To die for all of those who never mourn His loss
It wasn't meant for us to feel the pain again
Tell me why… tell me why..
