"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"
This song is from the album "Art of War" and "The Art Of War (Re-Armed Edition)".
