The War On War Songfacts says: "War On War" is about the need to experience (and consequently accept) failure, if you wish to live life to the full, as reflected in the lyric: "You have to learn how to die, if you want to want to be alive."

    it's crazy how powerful that opening refrain is: "There's a war on war, there's a war on — you're gonna lose."
