Album: Dawnwind - Looking Back On The Future [1975]


"Song from the Vietnam era, sadly still relevant to now!... "
I think I hear the dogs of war
Howling on the hill
And though they say the world's at peace,
I hear them howling still.
Oh, the masters they are shrieking
and they shout in freedom's name,
But Their words alone can never hide the bleeding face of pain
For our fathers died in freedom's cloak -but the world remained the same..

For the armies they are marching to the beating of the drum
And the distant sound of thunder is telling us to come
But we have heard the message
a thousand times before.
Will a million voices answer NO!
to the howling dogs of war?

Though they mock the dead with poppies,
the ones who never went
And speak in shameful whispers
of the heroes who were sent.
Still the masters grew much richer
and the common man was slain
And now the curs are thirsting
for our young men's blood again
For our fathers died in freedom's cloak
but the world remains the same.

For the armies they are marching to the beating of the drum
And the distant sound of thunder is telling us to come
But we have heard the message -a thousand times before...
Will a million voices answer NO to the howling dogs of war?

Speak not to me of glory,
tell to me no lies
For the widows and the orphans
are crying in your eyes,
And a dreadful toll of murder
is lying at your feet,
and when your lives are ended,
the armies you will meet.
And the ones you calmly slaughtered
will be your judges then,
and your riches will not save you
from the butchered sons of men.

For the armies they are marching -to the beating of the drum
And the distant sound of thunder is telling us to come
But we have heard the message -a thousand times before.
Will a million voices answer NO to the howling dogs of war?
Will a million voices answer NO! to the howling dogs of war?
Will a million voices answer NO!! to the howling dogs of war?
