Iron Maiden - 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 There 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 Sometime it seems more like The blind leading the blind It brings upon us more famine, death and war You know religion has a lot to answer for
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 theres 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 (8 times)
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 (8 times)
He gave his life for us he fell upon the cross To die for all of those who never mourn him It wasn?t meant for us to feel the pain again Tell me why, tell me why
