Janis Ian - Ready For The War Lyrics



Tonight we will speak about beauty
Tonight we will speak about truth
Tonight we will speak of duty
And the promises of youth
Tonight I will be all I have promised
Tonight you will breath through my skin
This night every lie will be honest
And our future will begin

I'm ready for the war - ready for the heat
Choose your battleground, now
Why don't we do it in the street?
There will be no peace tonight
No angels at the door
You are ready for a fight
And I am ready for the war

Tonight we will sit down in splendor
Tonight even beggars will feast
Tonight every bite will be tender
As moonlight through the trees
Tonight I will swallow your courage
Tonight you will feast on my heart
This night every soul will be savaged
And we'll tear this world apart

I'm ready for the war - ready for the heat
Choose your battleground, now
Why don't we do it in the street?
There will be no peace
No angels at your door
You are ready for the beast
And we are ready for the war

Tonight we will love without mercy
Tonight we will glory in greed
Tonight I will beg you to hurt me
Or finally set me free

I'm ready for the war - ready for the heat
Choose your battleground, now
Why don't we do it in the street?
There will be no peace
No angels at your door
You are ready for the beast
And we are ready for the war
