Rising Damp Demo


Written during the first Gulf War, this song isn't much to wave at.
A couple of nice turns of phrase but little insightful comment. I like the tune though.

16x12 persiangulfwar
Alone alone by the rolling sea
An old man in tears came and sat next to me:
"Have you heard the king's call
My sons have gone one and all
Oh no", cried my friend
Our young lads have marched off to war again..
Again again
Our young lads have marched off to war again.

The waves pounded hard but the war went on
The blood poured like rain at Verdun and the Somme
The bloodiest of gore
Since the 30 years war
A terrible time when
Our young lads have marched off to war again,
Again again
Our young lads have marched off to war again.

The tide went out but it came back in
A black cloud surrounded the world again
Fear in Jewish eyes
Their only crime was to be alive (at that time!)
The smoke poured black times ten
Our young lads have marched off to war again..
Again again
Our young lads have marched off to war again.

A bloody storm keeps raging that seems to never end
in Chechnya, Chile and Vietnam
in Afghanistan and Belfast they still cry
Around the globe young and old still die
Fighting for freedom or for greedy hands
Our young lads have marched off to war again,
Again again
Our young lads have marched off to war again.

The Gulf War 1 our latest game today
brown shirts for big business of the USA
Wall Street wants their oil
The lion wants a share of the spoil
They killed women and children and men
and they sent our young lads to their death again,
Again again
They sent our young lads to their death again.
