Lyrics

I reach for this world with an open heart
my intentions roll from my sleeves
Jousting and fighting just to be here
to realize the things I believe

The fights and the breakdowns
the crashes and shake downs
these little wars, these little wars

I reach for this world with a burning desire
an unending yearn for the stars
In my head there are happy endings
so why does the Earth feel like Mars?

The fights and the breakdowns
the crashes and shake downs
these little wars, these little wars

My heart burns like a campfire
I bask in the flame and delight
That nothing could keep us from trying to face all these wars with a fight

La, la, la

The wars that they fight in the night and the desert
the wars that go on in their heads
The masters and slaves all the games that they play
What's worth winning when everyone's dead?

The fights and the breakdowns
the crashes and shake downs
these little wars, these little wars

The debts and the men who collect them
Mafia disguised as your friends
threats to your good reputation
to keep you from spending again
The dirty call centers
the Merchants of Venom
these little wars

My heart burns like a campfire
I bask in the flame and delight
That nothing could keep us from trying to face all these wars with a fight

The Nazis still guarding and wrapped in cheap sweaters
their minds stuck in "God knows when?"
They'll let in the killers and read your love letters then hold you
for hours on end
They'll smash you to pieces on Sundays praise Jesus
on Mondays they'll do it again

The fights and the breakdowns
the crashes and shake downs
(these little wars, these little wars)
The dirty call centers
the Merchants of Venom
(these little wars, these little wars)
The fights and the breakdowns
the crashes and shakedowns
these little wars, these little wars

The lover who left you for criminal reasons no lawyer could ever defend
The groupie who poisons the souls of the future
It's not time on wars we can spend
