Romans 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
They hit you, so you hit back
Eye for an eye, soon we’re all blue n’ black
Tooth for a tooth, bring the force
Bring effects equal or greater than the cause
They stab you in the back
Pray to the heavens that karma gets them back
They ignore you, so you ignore them
Raise your right hand and take the pledge of silence.
They left you in the dark all alone
So in their night, you take your candle home
They sat and watched as your soul was poured out
And your blood was drunk by a merciless ground
So now you pull out the chair and watch them burn
Cheer the flames on. Isn’t that life? Isn’t it now their turn?
They brought you pain, you bring them pain
When war breaks out, who really gains?
We go to battle with our words
Over little things that are hardly a war worth
And we start with jabs, and get hit
So we hit a bit harder, just a bit.
And before we know what’s happening
We’re escalating a situation and clobbering
We go from a skirmish, throwing pebbles and stones
Arrows and spears, to war full-blown
Whence come the swords and hammers aimed for the face
Solid shields, the sickle and the mace.
Set up formations, foil and evade, flank the ranks
Call in air support, mortars, bombs and tanks.
Till finally we close quarters and pull the daggers from our vest
And plunge them into our foes beating chest
And in the heat of the moment we’ve forgotten why
This heated war we fight
But at the end, we on the ground do lie
Broken, tired, and something inside us doth die
For we, on this principle fight – the bigger stick wins the night
Fight fire with fire when you come to the fight
But nothing gets saved when you fight a fire
By lighting another fire that’s even higher
You’ll merely leave a scorched earth
Wounded souls wondering what was the worth
Broken hearts, bleeding out, everyone’s lost
Someone won the war, but with a Pyrrhic cost
If you really want to fight the fire – extinguish your flame
And introduce some water to the game
And maybe you’ll find that you can win
Without being surrounded in ashes in the end
