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.” Wilco’s frontman and chief songwriter, Jeff Tweedy, told Crud Magazine: “I think somehow you need to get to a certain point in your life where the notion of failure is absurd.”
