Start A War lyrics

We expected something
Something better than before
We expected something more

Do you really think you can just put it in a safe behind a painting
Lock it up and leave?
Do you really think you can just put it in a safe behind a painting
Lock it up and leave?

Walk away now and you're gonna start a war

Whatever went away, I'll get it over now
I'll get money, I'll get funny again
Whatever went away, I'll get it over now
I'll get money, I'll get funny again

Walk away now and you're gonna start a war

We expected something
Something better than before
We expected something more

You were always weird but I never had to hold you by the edges
Like I do now
You were always weird but I never had to hold you by the edges
Like I do now

Walk away now and you're gonna start a war

Whatever went away, I'll get it over now
I'll get money, I'll get funny again
Whatever went away, I'll get it over now
I'll get money, I'll get funny again

Walk away now and you're gonna start a war
Walk away now and you're gonna start a war
