racket

a song entitled wars a racket

Folder: 
belief system
Theres a word on the street
and it isn't peace
when it should be
 
sat amongst death
but it's the beginning no the end
new journey you see
 
life should be full of love
graceful like a dove
it's not : Definitely
 
Have you thought why not?
who won and who lost?
who pays? and at what cost?
 
Cos war is just a racket
please vote to sack it
all sisters and brothers
with world peace to recover
 
Born in the great war
fought in the second one
War sandwich: so glum
 
From the Somme to Syria
do you really care?
or blinded by propaganda?
 
any excuse for war
to get a foot in the door
for resources or more
 
Shades of WMD
Syria, just who sees
invisible similarities
 
Cos war is just a racket
please vote to sack it
all sisters and brothers
divide and conquer
 
Innocents in the middle
undoubted personal hell
can you really tell?
 
war mongers bleeting
only some countries seeing
ultimate selective hearing
 
bombs raining from above
Shows a lack of love
collateral damage; white doves
 
some stocks make bombs
like guilt edged bonds
death rolls on and on
 
Cos war is just a racket
please vote to sack it
all sisters and brothers
the few profit, the rest suffer
 
Syria, feel your pain
war is insane
and it's in our name
 
we are your kin
yet you are suffering
needless human killing
 
governments stoking war
when we want no more
this information they ignore
 
systems got to change
it's simply insane
war is inane
 
Cos war is just a racket
please vote to sack it
all sisters and brothers
Throw all war in the gutter
throw all war in the gutter
