‎[1970]‎
Dall’album “Rhenium” del 1990, una delle ristampe, con integrazione di inediti, dell’originale ‎‎“Osmium” (noto pure con l’ulteriore titolo di “First Thangs”)‎

Rhenium

This track looked at the contradictions between the statements of politicians and the reality. Richard Nixon, in the White House from January 1969, said that he wanted to end the Vietnam War in the 1968 election campaign, but by his November 1972 re-election, the war continued, at the cost of another 30,000 lives. As the narrator tells the listener, the "president's talkin' 'bout change", however, the government / army were still "makin' widows of the sweethearts and lovers". The song also commented on the draft, noting those people "shipping from the cradle to the grave", forced to have "a gun in their hands", and told by their country that it is their "duty to kill". Overall, the song took a strong anti-war line, and especially criticised the US government.

Vietnam War Songs Project
Happiness and peace
Is getting more and more out of my reach
Violence and revolution
Seems to be all that the people wanna preach
You're gunning down your brothers
Molestin' your sisters and your mothers in the streets
Whoa-oh the president's talkin' 'bout change
But nobody's got sense enough to come in out of the rain ‎
Eey hey hey (whoa)
Hey hey hey (whoo)‎

When will the people start gettin' together?
Learnin' to live and love one another?
Hey hey hey now (oh)
When will the people stop fightin' each other?
Learning to give and help one another
Hey hey hey now (aow)‎

War's my golden age
I've been shipped from the cradle to the grave
Put a gun in their hands
Saying it's your duty to kill another man
Guess somebody's been there to the mothers
Makin' widows of the sweethearts and lovers
And this is our land, mmhmm
The president's talkin' 'bout change
But nobody's got sense enough to come in out of the rain
Hey hey hey (ohhh)
Hey hey hey (whoo)‎

When will the people start gettin' together?
Learnin' to live and love one another?
Hey hey hey now (ohh)
When will the people stop fightin' each other?
Learn to give and help one another ‎
Hey hey hey now (aow)…‎
