Lingua: Inglese



Karen Barry Schwarz ha scritto una recensione intitolata "(A Prairie Wind Blows Through Nashville" sul concerto di Neil Young al Ryman Auditorium di Nashville, nell'agosto del 2005.


Karen è tra i tanti che hanno raccolto l'invito di Young a scrivere canzoni contro la guerra e la guerra in Iraq in particolare.

Tutti i contributi sono raccolti sul sito di Young alla pagina intitolata "Songs of the Times":

"Virtual War" è il contributo della Schwarz.

why can't we have a
virtual war
then least i'd know
what we're fighting for

virtual war
will never break your heart
virtual reality
can't tear us apart

battle lines drawn
on the tv screen
sit in your living room
and turn down the screams

virtual bombs virtual guns
virtual mothers
losing virtual sons
virtual families comin' all undone

soldiers can fight this fight
sleep in their own beds
nothing but hopes and dreams
dancing through their heads

soldiers only duty
a virtual tour
virtual horrors
a virtual war

sure it's not as thrilling
doing battle from your bed
but one thing i know for sure
you ain't gonna end up dead

how many women
how many men
look it says USA
we've won again

christmas is coming
and i know just what to do
an x-box for every president
and one for me and you

use our technology
to change ideology
a love and peace reality
let war be the casualty

how many women
how many men
look it says USA
we've won again

virtual bombs virtual guns
virtual mothers
losing virtual sons
virtual families comin' all undone

this is the only war that can be won
turn off your tv and it's done
throw down your hatred throw down your guns
fathers should get to keep their sons
fathers should get to keep their sons
fathers should get to keep their sons
