Federal Empire, The - What Are We Fighting For Lyrics




This isn't a game yeah
When mothers are crying
Watching their children die in vain

I'm praying for peace now
I saw all the conflict
Somehow there's got to be a change

No one wins when people die
Doesn't matter which side
Love will never make it out alive

What are we fighting for
I don't know why
An eye for an eye will leave the whole world blind
What are we fighting for
I don't know why

What are we fighting for
I don't know why
Money, religion, or power all the time
What are we fighting for
I don't know why

The price of our freedom
Is blood in the water
We're looking for hope what will it take

We keep on repeating
The fate of our fathers
Somehow there's got to be a change

No one wins when people die
Doesn't matter which side
Love will never make it out alive

What are we fighting for
I don't know why
An eye for an eye will leave the whole world blind
What are we fighting for
I don't know why

What are we fighting for
I don't know why
Money, religion, or power all the time
What are we fighting for
I don't know why

What are we fighting for
I don't know why
An eye for an eye will leave the whole world blind
What are we fighting for
I don't know why

What are we fighting for
I don't know why
Money, religion, or power all the time
What are we fighting for
I don't know why

  10. Ty Thomas

    Heard this on spotify and don't get why y'all aren't more popular? Amazing job keep up the good work

    The Federal Empire

  11. Josan Ortega Rodriguez

    I just was walking on the street listening to music on Spotify and I heard this immediately I added it on my playlist. What a good song 😄

    The Federal Empire

    thank you

  12. CD JM

    Can't find chords for it anywhere, and cant seem to figure out the arrangement myself :(
    Anyone care to help a dude out please? :)

    Abigail

    For guitar it's capo 3
    Intro and verse: Em G, Em G, Em C Em
    Chorus: Em G C Em

    CD JM

    Abigail Faith  oh woah that simple. Haha. I hadn't considered capo'ing up, and couldn't figure out the open string chords. So open chords would poss be something like Gm Bb and D# or something, so no wonder I couldn't figure it out haha

    CD JM

    @Abigail also, thanks :) I'll give em a rip tomorrow, and fine tune that sweet picking riff

    CD JM

    @Abigail hey, amazing! Love it! The hammer ons for the Em and C, are what i love :) However i discovered a nicer sound for the chorus when playing with only an acoustic, and no backing instruments, instead of the Em at the end... : Em, G, C, D# (altered) (x54030\EADGBe) (or even just a regular D)

    Abigail

    @CD JM Awesome! I knew there was possibly a different chord there but I couldn't figure it out. I'll have to try that out!
