WELCOME TO THE WAR
By Kerry Livgren AD

The word you call a weapon
Is the sound that will divide
And the war goes on within your heart
‘Til you finally take a side
And put to death your pride

You speak of fear and judgment
Do you fear the one who knows?
Your freedom’s restoration
Is the purpose you oppose

And the consequence of action
Is a law that all men face
The rising son has bought the
human race

Welcome to the war
From beginning to end
Welcome to the last world war
Welcome to the war
Truth will not bend
Tell me who you’re fighting for

Your dreams and all your visions
Won’t feed a hungry child
And all the vain philosophies
Have left your mind defiled

You declare as myth and legend
What stands before your eyes
The faith is sure, but you prefer the lies

Welcome to the war
There is no neutral ground
Welcome to the last world war
Welcome to the war
No escape can be found
Tell me who you’re fighting for

And when you’re truly broken, it all becomes so clear
This place that we were born in, all the hatred and the fear
Was not the world intended, nor ever meant to be
So twisted and distorted, it’s reaching out and crying to be free

The power and the glory will not be put to shame
The world in which we’re meant to live
Has been revealed, and conquered in his name

To those who hold the future as a time when all is well
The truth is in the knowing of a heaven or a hell
For the aliens and strangers it’s a time we must endure
For when the light grows dim, the victory is sure

Welcome to the war
There is no neutrality
Welcome to the last world war
Welcome to the war
It’s the one reality
Tell me who you’re fig
hting for

Welcome to the war
From beginning to end
Welcome to the last world war
Welcome to the war
Truth will not bend
Tell me who you’re fighting for

It’s the last world war


BELFRY
by Lone Justice

Scarred, scourged, tattered
Vessels frayed and frail
The shield of faith is battered
But it will not lie down
To let defeat prevail

Pounding with a vengeance
Hearts that beat with light
For shining in the distance
A glimpse of the tower
Through the blood and fog

Belfry, Belfry
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us

From the coldest mountain
To the deepest brine
Burst the shutters open
And let the glorious sound
Rip apart the sky

Belfry, Belfry
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us

Belfry, Belfry
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes for us

Belfry, hope has returned for good
Belfry, ring victory’s chimes
for us


WARRIOR
by Jerusalem

I never dreamed I’d be a fighter one day
Now I’m enlisted in the heat of the fray
Entrenched on the front line, fighting for God
He’s the commander, we move at his word

Though many don’t know they’re

on the wrong side

Lured into service by lust, greed and pride
Their leader a liar, through and through
Lies and more lies that’s all he can do

You are no meager opponent
But look out Satan you’d better run
Admit you’re wasting your time
You know already who’s won

So don’t go thinking you can make us believe
We are deserted without leader or brief
Jesus has promised and he keeps his word
I’d rather trust him and a two-edged sword

You are no meager opponent
But look out Satan you’d better run
Admit you’re wasting your time
You know already who’s won

Don’t come round here in your clever disguise
It’s occupied territory, we know all your spies
We’ll stand side by side, fight hand in hand
Till our leader is back in control of this land

The enemy takes no prisoners
So don’t go fighting alone
We must join forces in battle
And fight as one in the son

And fight as one in the son

And fight as one in the son


FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
by Triumph

Days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
Feels like we’re running out of time
Every day it seems much harder telling right from wrong
You got to read between the lines

Don’t get discouraged, don’t be afraid, we can
Make it through another day
Make it worth the price we pay

The Good Book says it’s better to give than to receive
I do my best to do my part
Nothing’ in my pockets I got nothing’ up my sleeve
I keep my magic in my heart

Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby
I am counting on you
You know what you’ve got to do

Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
It’s your only way

All your life you’ve been waiting for your chance
Where you’ll fit into the plan
But you’re the master of your own destiny
So give and take the best that you can

You think a little more money can buy your soul some rest
You’d better think of something else instead
You’re so afraid of being honest with yourself
You’d better take a look inside your head

Nothing is easy, nothing good is free on earth
But I can tell you where to start
Take a look inside your heart
There’s an answer in your heart

Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay

Every moment of your lifetime
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay


SOLDIERS UNDER COMMAND
by Stryper

We are the soldiers under God’s command
We hold His two-edged sword within our hands
We’re not ashamed to stand up for what’s right
We win without sin, it’s not by our might

And we’re fighting all the sin
And the good book — it says we’ll win!

Soldiers, Soldiers, under command
Soldiers, Soldiers, fighting the Lords battle plan

Are you a soldier under God’s command
Help fight the good fight, join us while you can
The battle that’s waiting is fought so easily
Through Him, without sin there is victory

And were fighting all the sin
And the good book — it says we’ll win!

Soldiers, Soldiers, under command
Soldiers, Soldiers, fighting the Lords battle plan
