Ah
Well, well, well, well, well, well, well
Wow, wow, wow (hoo hoo hoo)
I was slippin' into darkness
When they took my friend away
I was slippin' into darkness
When they took, when they took my friend away

You know he loves to drink good whiskey (Wo ho ho ho)
While laughing at the moon

Slippin' into darkness
Take my mind beyond the dreams
I was slippin' into darkness, yeah
Take my mind beyond the dreams

Where I talk to my brother (Wo ho ho ho)
Who never said their name

Slippin' into darkness, yeah
All my trouble so I choose
I was slippin' into darkness, yeah
All my trouble so I choose

I got a wife and a baby, yeah yeah (Oh ho ho ho)
Now my love hath gained its fame, yeah

Slippin' into darkness, yeah
When I heard my mother say
I was slippin' into darkness
When I heard my mother say
Hey, what'd she say what'd she say
You've been slippin' into darkness (Wo ho ho ho)

Pretty soon you gonna pay, hey

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

War

War is an organized, armed, and, often, a prolonged conflict that is carried on between states, nations, or other parties typified by extreme aggression, social disruption, and usually high mortality. War should be understood as an actual, intentional and widespread armed conflict between political communities, and therefore is defined as a form of political violence. The set of techniques used by a group to carry out war is known as warfare. An absence of war (and other violence) is usually called peace. more »
