Lyrics

DRUMS OF WAR

 

{ Humming Why, Why, Why??

Why,Why Whyyyyyyyy?.}

Sometimes we?re so blind we can?t see

Sometimes we don?t want to believe

Surely we can?t be doing this again

Led by those fools who don?t know their own history

When are we ever going to learn?

Storm clouds are looming near

Drums of war are calling loud

Just like it?s done before

Tears of blood will fall again

Oh the pain Oh the pain All for no gain

A nation?s best will be laid to rest

Always at the behest of those

Who never put their own sons to the test

 

Same old familiar rhetoric

Same old familiar sounds

Rights on our side and god will lead us through

But don?t be conned ?don?t be fooled

Open your eyes and you?ll see

This has allhappened before

Another generation led astray

Another generation gone to the grave

Tears of blood will fall again

Oh the pain Oh the pain All for no gain

A nation?s best will be laid to rest

Always at the behest of those

Who never put their own sons to the test

 

I?ll take the banner and not the gun

You?ll not be taking this fathers son

The blindfolds coming down

I?ll not be swayed by your persuasive tongue anymore

Not like it?s happened many times before

So don?t be conned ?don?t be fooled

Open your eyes and you?ll see

Unless you have a penchant to grieve

It?s time people took notice or be deceived

Or you?ll be shedding a tear in a beer

For those sons and daughters that are no more

 

Tears of blood will fall again

Oh the pain Oh the pain All for no gain

A nation?s best will be laid to rest

Always at the behest of those

Who never put their own sons to the test

Oh the pain Oh the pain All for no gain

Oh the pain Oh the pain All for no gain

Oh the pain Oh the pain All for no gain

 

Oh the pain Oh the pain All for no gain
