One day they will beat the last war drum
and we will hear the rattle the hum and the clatter of the earth as it shatters
Everyone has a grave waiting out there for them
so why cause bloodshed, why not stem the flow
stop the bleeding, the bloodshed show.
Yes the rich line their pockets
and blood for oil, powers our mains sockets
but when the rich wage war it’s the poor who die
no god can stand in our way
It takes us all to make a stand
divided we die and fall
this wasn’t what we planned.
Boys brought up to fight and be soldiers
what do you think they will be when they are older?
yes you know the story
we glamorise death and glory
but on the battle field your friend is blown up and it’s gory!
and you come back with PTSD
you think your fighting for a cause
but our governments have a get out clause
when it comes to looking after its own citizens
It’s called we don’t have enough money
now it ain’t funny that of the lions that fought
that most are deemed to be worth nought!
It wasn’t what we were taught!
