The War Confessions Lyrics


by Catman Cohen. From Confessions of a Shadow.


Thereís 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
Werenít we once kids
Just kicking a ball?
Laughing Ďbout everything
Nothing at all

In a playground, Ďneath the sun
In a playground, having fun
Werenít we once kids
Thought war is a game?
Fall over dead
And jump up again

(Hey, hey, what do you want to say?}

Donít want to lose my legs
In defense of larceny
The banksters stealing billions
From the national Treasury

Donít want to take a bullet
Left coughing up blood
For your right to a lap dance
At some faraway club

Donít want to suck my meals
Through a thin feeding tube
On behalf of profiteers
Dealing addicts their crude

Donít want to wheeze harshly
Hooked to a machine
In the service of ingrates
And all thatís obscene

Donít want to suffer flashbacks
Those nightmarish screams
While billionaires lullaby
To private jet dreams

Nobodyís tool, nobodyís fool.
NO!!!!

In a world so long ago
In a world we used to know
Werenít 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
Werenít we once kids?
Who rode on our bikes
Vampires scared us
Not nuclear strikes

(Hey, hey, what do you want to say?)

Thereís a fury on the waves
A madness taking place
Fueled by the blood
Of weary wage slaves

Thereís a world of growing horror
Where a playground stood before
And it Ďs time to stop
This lunatic war

Thereís a world of growing horror
Where a playground stood before
And itís time to stop
This murderous war

Thereís a world of growing horror
Where a playground stood before
And Itís time to stop
This sickening war

Thereís a world of growing horror
Where a playground stood before
And itís time to stop
This bloody awful war

Letís bring back our playground
Stop this war
Letís restore our playground
Stop this warÖ

Yes, itís time
(yes itís time)

Time to STOP THIS WAR!

[Thanks to Arnold Levine for lyrics]
