For The Greater Good Of God Lyrics

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 defense
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
