I Don't Want A Third World War
Written By Matthew Ryan

Our darkness is catching up with us
We're turning to cannibals
Darkness is catching up with us
We're acting like animals
Look a child in the eye and say
What were you hoping for?
You shouldn't expect too much
Look a child in the eye and say
What are you crying for?
You should never expect too much from us

But I don't want a third world war
A third world war
A third world war
No I don't want a third world war
A third world war
A third world war

Now nothing ever happens
Unless you want it to happen
Unless you want it really
No nothing ever happens
Unless you want it to happen
Unless you want it
Completely

I don't want a third world war
A third world war
A third world war
No I don't want a third world war
A third world war
A third world war

Now nothing ever happens
Unless you want it to happen
Unless you want it really
No nothing ever happens
Unless you want it to happen
Unless you want it
Completely

I don't want a third world war
A third world war
A third world war
No I don't want a third world war
A third world war
A third world war
