The War Confessions

 

The War Confessions Song Lyrics


There’s a fury on the waves
A madness taking place
Fueled by the blood
Of weary wage slaves
And they taught us how to hate
In a hi tech kind of way
Made us meat puppets
For the wars they wage
In a playground, running round
In a playground, being clowns
Weren’t we once kids
Just kicking a ball?
Laughing ‘bout everything
Nothing at all
In a playground, ‘neath the sun
In a playground, having fun
Weren’t we once kids
Thought war is a game?
Fall over dead
And jump up again
(Hey, hey, what do you want to say?}
Don’t want to lose my legs
In defense of larceny
The banksters stealing billions
From the national Treasury
Don’t want to take a bullet
Left coughing up blood
For your right to a lap dance
At some faraway club
Don’t want to suck my meals
Through a thin feeding tube
On behalf of profiteers
Dealing addicts their crude
Don’t want to wheeze harshly
Hooked to a machine
In the service of ingrates
And all that’s obscene
Don’t want to suffer flashbacks
Those nightmarish screams
While billionaires lullaby
To private jet dreams
Nobody’s tool, nobody’s fool.
NO!!!!
In a world so long ago
In a world we used to know
Weren’t we once kids?
Who sang funny songs
No thoughts of torture
Phosphorous bombs
In a world so long ago
In a world we used to know
Weren’t we once kids?
Who rode on our bikes
Vampires scared us
Not nuclear strikes
(Hey, hey, what do you want to say?)
There’s a fury on the waves
A madness taking place
Fueled by the blood
Of weary wage slaves
There’s a world of growing horror
Where a playground stood before
And it ‘s time to stop
This lunatic war
There’s a world of growing horror
Where a playground stood before
And it’s time to stop
This murderous war
There’s a world of growing horror
Where a playground stood before
And It’s time to stop
This sickening war
There’s a world of growing horror
Where a playground stood before
And it’s time to stop
This bloody awful war
Let’s bring back our playground
Stop this war
Let’s restore our playground
Stop this war…
Yes, it’s time
(yes it’s time)
Time to STOP THIS WAR!
