Holy Man's War

This song is by Icon and appears on the album Right Between The Eyes (1989).

Hey, yeah

Is it black against white or brother versus brother
Is it wrong against right or color versus color
You can see it in the night or feel it in the morning
Is it worth the fight, you better take my warning

'Cause you can't stop what you can't control
You can take another life and lose another soul

It's a holy man's war
It's a fight for survival
Trying to live day by day
It's a holy man's war
And it's rival versus rival
You can take it from me
With the things that I've seen
It's a holy man's war

If I see you walking on my side of town
Better bring your army, we're gonna take you down
Ain't got no reasons for the things that we do
When you're born with nothing, you've got nothing to lose

'Cause you can't stop what you can't control
You can take another life and lose another soul

It's a holy man's war
It's a fight for survival
Trying to live day by day
It's a holy man's war
And it's rival versus rival
You can take it from me
With the things that I've seen
It's war

You can take another life and lose another soul

There was a time when life meant so much to me
(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
The longer I live the less that I want to see
That's not the way it should be

If you see me walking on your side of town
It's gonna take your army just to bring me down
'Cause I've got no reasons for all the things I do
Oh, I was born with nothing and I've got nothing to lose

It's a holy man's war
It's a fight for survival
Trying to live day by day
It's a holy man's war
And it's rival versus rival
You can take it from me
With the things that I've seen

It's a holy man's war
It's a fight for survival
Trying to live day by day
It's a holy man's war
And it's rival versus rival
You can take it from me
With the things that I've seen
It's war, a holy man's war, ooh...

You can take it from me
With the things that I've seen
Now is it black against white
Or wrong against right
You can live for the fight or die
