The War Confessions Song Lyrics

 
Catman Cohen
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
The War Confessions 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!
