The country's been torn into pieces
Everyone picks their faction
Showing us the way
To a violent reaction.

Everyone wants happiness
Their own Cloud Nine
Inexcusable actions
Society starts to decline

Hate blinds the world
What have we done?
Infantry bring their ordnance
And then there were none.

Why is it needed?
Peace through war
The death of millions
Shake this world to it's core.

Set the world afire
This world is burning
Is this the way
For the peace we're yearning?

It's all of us
For whom tolls the bell
We have no choice
Everything's going to hell


Criticisms?

i really like the flow and structure of everything, one thing you may want to consider revising is, "Set the world afire, This world is burning" try changing one of the "worlds" to something like earth/planet so its not so redundant. and if you don't like that, keep it the way it is, its your piece after all

very grim, but i like it, i feel like it is somewhat relevant to modern day.

Why is it needed?
Peace through war
The death of millions
Shake this world to it's core.

although you break your rhyme scheme here, is it because this is a chorus maybe?
