Arcade Fire - Culture War Lyrics




Now the future's staring at me
like a vision from the past,
and I know these crumbs they sold me,
they're never gonna last.
Though we know the culture war,
we don't know what it's for but
we've lived the southern strategy.
You know it's never gonna last,
so keep it in the past.

These are different times that we're living in.
These are different times.
Now the kids are growing up so fast.
Paying for our crimes.

You left while I was sleepin'.
You said, "It's down to me".
Oh I've read a little Bible.
You see what you want to see.
Oh, we know the culture war,
we don't know what it's for but
we've lived your southern strategy.
You know it's never gonna last
so keep that shit in the past.

These are different times that we're living in.
'Cause these are different times.
Now the kids are growing up so fast.
They're paying for our crimes.

The dominos they never fell
but bodies they still burn.
Throw my hand into the fire
but still I never learn,
will I ever learn?

That these are different times.
Now the kids are growing up so fast
and paying for our crimes.
We'll be soldiers for you, mommy and daddy,
in your culture war.
We'll be soldiers for you, mommy and daddy,
but we don't know what it's for.

We're soldiers now in the culture war.
We're soldiers now, but we don't know what it's for.
We're soldiers now in the culture war.
We're soldiers now, but we don't know what it's for.
So tell me what's it for.

You want it? You got it, here's your culture war.
You want it? Now you've got it, so tell me what's it for.

    Now the future's staring at me
    Like a vision from the past
    And I know these crumbs they sold me
    They're never going to last
    Though we know the culture war
    We don't know what it's for
    But we've lived a southern strategy
    But no, it's never going to last
    So keep it in the past
    These are different times that we're living in
    These are different times
    Now the kids are growing up so fast
    They're paying for our crimes
    You left while I was sleeping
    You said it's damning
    Oh, I've read a little Bible
    You see what you want to see
    Oh, we know the culture war
    We don't know what it's for
    But we've lived your southern strategy
    We know it's never going to last
    So keep that shit in the past
    These are different times that we're living in
    Because these are different times
    Now the kids are growing up so fast
    They're paying for our crimes
    These are different times that we're living in
    These are different times
    Now the kids are growing up so fast
    They're paying for our crimes
    The dominoes, they never fell
    Our bodies they still burn
    I throw my hand into the fire
    But still I never learn
    Will I ever learn?
    These are different times
    Now the kids are growing up so fast
    Paying for our crimes
    We'll be soldiers for mommy and dad
    In your culture wars
    We'll be soldiers for mommy and dad
    Don't know what it's for
    We're soldiers now
    In the culture war
    We're soldiers now
    But we don't know what it's for
    We're soldiers now
    In the culture war
    We're soldiers now
    But we don't know what it's for
    So tell me, what's it for?
    You want it? You got it
    Here's your culture war
    You want it, now you got it
    So tell me, what's it for?
    You want it? You got it
    Here's your culture war
    You want it, now you got it
    So tell me what's it for?
    Yeah tell me, what's it for?
