Fight No More
(Maeran)


[2008]
Album: To Those Who Wait
To Those Who Wait
Sat and stared across the bay,
Saw the ships head on their way,
Heard the beat of engines of war..
Felt the dull ache in my eyes
Gazing at the seamless skies,
Shredded by that fierce taloned claw...

With the evening silence came
And the voices called out my name,
This is man's method, his law.
Stand with us be as one,
Join the battle, embrace the gun,
But my heart cried out – I am no man of war!

Breathed the silence of the land,
Grasped the country in my hand,
Fearing it might slip away..
Lost beyond the setting sun,
Blasted by that brutal gun,
Threatening to blow my hopes away..

With the evening silence came
And the voices called out my name
This is man's method, his law..
Stand with us be as one,
Join the battle, embrace the gun
And my voice resounded – I am no man of war!

Children's dreams are laid to waste
Shattered by destructive haste.
Lives are scarred and broken...
Then the banners hailing peace,
Flutter vainly in the breeze
As a futile token..

And with evening silence comes
To drown the message of the drums
This is man's method -his war.
Stand with us be as one,
Join the battle, embrace the gun,
But my voice resounds... I am no man of war!
