Now the future's staring at me
Like a vision from the past
And I know these crumbs they sold me
They're never going to last

Though we know the culture war
We don't know what it's for
But we've lived a southern strategy
But no, it's never going to last
So keep it in the past

These are different times that we're living in
These are different times
Now the kids are growing up so fast
They're paying for our crimes

You left while I was sleeping
You said it's damning
Oh, I've read a little Bible
You see what you want to see

Oh, we know the culture war
We don't know what it's for
But we've lived your southern strategy
We know it's never going to last
So keep that shit in the past

These are different times that we're living in
Because these are different times
Now the kids are growing up so fast
They're paying for our crimes

These are different times that we're living in
These are different times
Now the kids are growing up so fast
They're paying for our crimes

The dominoes, they never fell
Our bodies they still burn
I throw my hand into the fire
But still I never learn
Will I ever learn?

These are different times
Now the kids are growing up so fast
Paying for our crimes

We'll be soldiers for mommy and dad
In your culture wars
We'll be soldiers for mommy and dad
Don't know what it's for

We're soldiers now
In the culture war
We're soldiers now
But we don't know what it's for

We're soldiers now
In the culture war
We're soldiers now
But we don't know what it's for

So tell me, what's it for?

You want it? You got it
Here's your culture war
You want it, now you got it
So tell me, what's it for?

You want it? You got it
Here's your culture war
You want it, now you got it
So tell me what's it for?

Yeah tell me, what's it for?
