‘War Is Coming (If You Want It)’ can be heard HERE, following its world premiere earlier today on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. The track is available via all services HERE.

The demo version, ‘War Is Coming (If You Want It) [March Mix]’, cannot be heard anywhere anymore, having been made available for purchase via Bandcamp for just 24-hours on August 4th, to support their fundraiser for the Transgender Law Center. Car Seat Headrest’s portion of the proceeds from the song on Bandcamp will continue to be donated to the Transgender Law Center.

Says Will Toledo, “This is a song about not murdering people”.

 

Lyrics:
Last night I dreamed that you’d murdered some kids
Gone up towards the border where the freaks live
I couldn’t tolerate it, yet somehow I did
If it had been on TV I would’ve changed the channel
And afterwards I lay awake for quite some time
And thought about opinions I’d kept
At 5 in the morning I couldn’t tolerate it
How many had died while I slept?
Now is the time to cast Darwin aside
Stop spinning lines that justify the lure of suicide
And reach out your hands
And save someone’s life
Because war is coming
If you want it
She’s keeping quiet in a season of crime
Walking away as if nothing had changed
From that awful display
People are are strange
If they keep on laughing
Nothing will change
Now is the time to cast the screenplay aside
And try to create some space between the lines
To lift up your voice
And change someone’s mind
Because war is coming
If you want it
