All those people who died in a war
Are you really sure what they died for?
Fighting their fellows for some king or queen
And DEBT for the money-men behind the scenes
We're told they are heroes so we can be free
To pay for a passport to cross overseas
And gone are the days when the king took the lead
The politic realise they've no need to bleed
And many a poor soldier thinks he's noble indeed
But he commits murder for money-men's greed
And all the blood shed in the name of the queen
Means war's a big business to feed the machine
With the War Dead...
And Britain went bankrupt Eighteen Sixty-Nine
When the bankers took everything off our bottom line
And the debt gets a boost every seventy years
So each generation's presented new fears
Last time they called it 'The Second World War'
This time a 'Credit Crunch', more tax on the poor
So what in two thousand and seventy nine
Will be their excuse to add to their crime?
And the War Dead...
And you know in your heart the debt will never be paid
But still you keep working to fill some more graves
'cause the fruit of our labour is death overseas
While we eat our pizza's and watch our T.V.'s
Our tax is the fuel for those fires abroad
And all of our “protests” will all be ignored
While some poor “Western” teenager 'saved' from the dole
Gets paid Sixteen Grand to raise the “Eastern” death toll
And fight in a hole, or die on patrol
Through this fear they control and like slaves we are sold
The lies we are told, and who of us knows
How far back it goes
As the debt grows and grows
For the wars we oppose,
As our conscience bellows
The all seeing eye glows...
The War Dead...

Live @ The Harlequin Fayre - Leo♌ 13514 UCC (August 2013 Gregorian)
This one comes out of the frustration of going on marches and demonstrations, with many thousands or even millions of others, such as the one against the invasion of Iraq in 2003 Gregorian (pictured above) only to have them completely ignored by the government. But then it is "Her Majesty's Government" after all, not ours, so I guess it's no surprise seeing as how it was 'Her Maj' who signed off the executive order to go to war in the first place.
I soon realised, having done many hours of 'Freeman' and associated research that the system loves war as it ticks so many boxes for those that benefit from and control that system.
There really is no point in protesting by going on marches, in fact the system loves that too! (To see why click here)
The only thing that makes the money men sit up and take notice is if we STOP PAYING THEM
And by doing that we can ensure that we're not complicit in Her Majesty's War Crimes too
Think about it.... do you really want to be responsible for adding to 'The War Dead'
