    Lyrics

    "If you know the enemy and know yourself
    you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
    If you know yourself but not the enemy
    for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
    If you know neither the enemy or yourself
    you will succumb in every battle"

    I stand alone and gaze upon the battlefield
    Wasteland is all that's left after the fight
    And now I'm searching a new way to defeat my enemy
    Bloodshed
    I've seen enough of death and pain

    I will run they will hunt me in vain
    I will hide they'll be searching
    I'll regroup feign retreat they'll pursue
    Coup de grâce I will win but never fight

    That's the Art of War [X2]

    Breaking the will to fight among the enemy
    Force them to hunt me they will play my game
    And play by my rules
    I will be close but still untouchable
    No more will I see suffering and pain

    They will find me no more
    I'll be gone I will have them surrounded
    They will yield without fight
    Overrun Coup de grâce
    I will win but never fight

    That's the Art of War [x2]

    Broken and lost tired of war
    They'll surrender to me
    Caught in my trap there's no way out
    Fail never again
    (Never again)

    I will run they will hunt me in vain
    I will hide they'll be searching
    I'll regroup feign retreat they'll pursue
    Coup de grâce I will win but never fight

    That's the Art of war [X4]

    "Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence.
    Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemies resistance
    without fighting"
