lyrics

Countries are becoming more militarized
They are joining forces to become allies
Imperialism is out of control
Nationalism is out of control
And then a bullet kills Franz Ferdinand
A Serbian terrorist from the Black Hand
Austria Hungary declares war on Serbia
and then Russia declares war on them
Germany joins, now it's out of hand

The Great War
The war to end all wars
World War One
The war to end all wars
The Great War
The war to end all wars
World War One
The war to end all wars

The world's great powers all meet in Europe
Allies over here, Central Powers over there
A Race to the Sea caused trench warfare
And soon both sides weren't going anywhere
Industrialization caused massive destruction
Machine guns, poison gas, tanks and airplanes
Battle of the Somme was incredibly gory
The two front war war put a strain on Germany
Russia was out, but the United States in

The Great War
The war to end all wars
World War One
The war to end all wars
The Great War
The war to end all wars
World War One
The war to end all wars

Trench foot, shell shock, just stay out of no man's land
So confident, going in, now things are getting out of hand
Trench foot, shell shock, just stay out of no man's land
So confident, going in, now things are getting out of hand

2nd Battle of the Marne, a big turning point
Germany surrendered in 1918
But tens of millions of people were dead
Imperial powers like Turkey gone too
The Treaty of Versailles and League of Nations
Wanted world peace but that wouldn't happen
Twenty years later and Germany wants revenge
The war to end all wars led to war again!
