War Song
Song lyrics from the album "No Time Like the Future "

Warsong        Bernard Carney   1991 

                                                           

Time for our minds to be taken from war

The news is so boring and dreary

More broken bones for a hungry Dow Jones

And the people have all become weary

 

The job has been done by the media's gun

The establishment grows ever stronger

No need to worry what's right or whats wrong

Don't think about this any longer

 

While the wars of the world rage on

 

Each newscaster's bulletin bombards our brains

Each article softens our thinking

Each new righteous reason will mask and conceal

The hole into which we are sinking

 

The voices of protest grow quieter each day

The crackpots who screamed against violence

Are labelled as peaceniks and sent on their way

The majority slides into silence

 

And the wars of the world rage on

 

When the young men and women caught up in this mess

Join the ranks of the wounded and dying

The media mutters of duty and honour

And love of our country

And the national flag will be flying

 

Flying  for a new world order of countries

Flying for the new troops we're sending

Flying  for the old rules that fuel all the fires

And  prevent all these wars from ending

 

While the wars of the world rage on

 

Time for our minds to be taken from war

The news is so boring and dreary

More broken bones for a hungry dow jones

And the people have all become weary
