might need a little 'tweak' here and there, but basically it's done:

 

conflicting chiefs and groups
fight for superiority
there is no lenience
towards alleged enemies

marauding gangs create
a climate of anxiety
there is no hope left for
decorum and propriety

the battle's won, the war is lost
the country's devastated
ruined are all prospects
for future generations
there is no comfort
no justification
too many lives has it cost
- the havoc we created

kids are being raised
in violence and poverty
no morals, no restraint
just selfishness and vanity

the battle's won, the war is lost
the country's devastated
ruined are all prospects
for future generations
there is no comfort
no justification
too many lives has it cost
- the havoc we created

we sell weapons
to all parties
seeking sordid gain
offer some measly help
to the victims
rejoicing in their pain

the battle's won, the war is lost
the country's devastated
ruined are all prospects
for future generations
there is no comfort
no justification
too many lives has it cost
- the havoc we created
