Rock in the most general of terms!!!
This is a tune that originally was performed by my 90's rock band "A Grey Sky" and appeared on their landmark cassette only release "The Millet Stalk". Over time I have been recording new versions of the songs from that album (Don't Resist and You Will Smile Again amongst others) and putting them out as singles. This is just another in that line of tunes. Here are the lyrics

Why do you look at me like you’ve seen me before
Like we shared emotions like we really cared
It makes me uneasy you’re totally wrong
Yet I see you’d be happy if I was right on this one

I don’t know you
You don’t care
I don’t know you
Yet still I stare, still I stare

You claim I knew you once but that was before
The war hit our country, it came to our door
So know we’re divided, one in two hands
We both see that we’ve sided in differing lands
I won’t question your ideals
Though perhaps I have
It does not matter now
The battle’s been had
It’s a war of beliefs
It’s a theater of war
It’s a bloody parade
At all of our mouths

You look at me you look away
We both know what that means
cuz I do the very same
and hold onto our beliefs
Is it a battle? Is it a war?
Are we inflicting senseless scars????
