I don't blame the soldiers for doing their job, their duty, but no one can argue with what I say. War is hell.

(War Is Just) Another Name for Hell

Bullets fly and they hurt, they kill

They kill both sides and blood falls
This was never intended
This isn't how it was meant to be

War is just another name for hell

Anything where so many are lost
Can truly be nothing else
War is just another place for pain

Family's hide in their homes

They pray to make it through the night
Not knowing if they will live
Or if they will all be killed

War is just another name for hell

Anything where so many are lost
Can truly be nothing else
War is just another reason to hate

A young wife waits endlessly

For a soldier who won't be coming home
When she hears this terrible news
Her heart hardens and turns cold

War is just another name for hell

Anything where so many are lost
Can truly be nothing else
War is just another time to cry

A building fell and thousands died

The smoke was seen miles away
So many came to help those trapped
But still so many were lost

War is just another name for hell

Anything where so many are lost
Can truly be nothing else
War is just another way to crush life

A soldier wakes up in a faraway place

He's surrounded by other soldiers
Yet he feels alone without his wife
For others another day passes
For him, the world ends

War is just another name for hell

Anything where so many are lost
Can truly be nothing else
War is just another day to die
War is just another name for hell
