Welcome to the third installment of Guerrilla Gigs. In this episode, I travelled to Shannon Airport in Co. Clare to protest against The US military’s ongoing use of the airport as a military base in their illegal wars around the globe. Since 2002, almost 3 million American troops have passed through this airport on their way to carry out unspeakable atrocities worldwide, killing and displacing millions of innocent women, children and men in the process.

This not only makes Ireland fully complicit in these war crimes but also makes us far from a neutral country in the eyes of the people whose lives are being ripped apart by these conflicts, and whose families these planes are on their way to murder daily. It’s absolutely shameful and our involvement needs to stop now.

I also made this episode in protest of the Irish governments recent decision to sign Ireland up to the new EU army, or simply the PESCO agreement as it is currently being masqueraded. A very dangerous move, made with little public debate, that will only further destroy what’s left of our already questionable neutrality and pave the way for Ireland to increase its spending and involvement in future illegal conflicts, invasions and occupations around the world and so that, in time, our children too can be flown off to kill the children of others. Is this the future we really want?

Seems crazy, no it doesn’t seem real
All the images I see, that are flashing in front of me
How do we do these things to each other
Can we not feel the pain of our own brother

And don’t you know we’re running, running out of time
Can’t you see we’re running out of time
Everyday a day closer to the end of the line
And don’t you know we’re running out of time

Now it’s madness, what’s happening all around
Worlds getting pretty insane, scary shit is going down
Brother against brother, we hate each other now
Fooled by religion and the men who stand in power

And don’t you know we’re running, running out of time
Can’t you see we’re running out of time
Everyday a day closer to the end of the line
And don’t you know we’re running out of time

And now that day is coming soon, when we will hear that final tune
You know we’re running out of time, the human race is on the line
And when that final day it comes to wash over everyone
Yeah there will be no one left to save, when the whole Worlds in a grave

And don’t you know we’re running, running out of time
Can’t you see we’re running out of time
Everyday a day closer to the end of the line
And don’t you know we’re running out of time
