War Weary

When?

A (hopefully) soon-to-be-recorded folk song…

 

When?

When will the war be over, Daddy?

When are you coming home?

Why do you have to be so far away?

When will all those Bad Men be gone?

Oh, sweetheart, the wars will never be over

Till there’s no more wealth to steal,

Till there’s not one child in any land

Who doesn’t bow

To our ideals.

While war makes more money than peace ever could,

We’ll bloody the furthest field.

So, my petal, Daddy will never come home

Until the true Bad Men

Are revealed.

Oh, father, why can’t those bad men be found?

Someone must know where they are!

I’m sure my brave daddy can track them down

Be they ever so near or so far!

Oh, my love, hell surrounds me right now,

But I’ve found few Bad Men here.

Just fathers and brothers defending their homes

And those they hold

So dear.

So, hear me, my child, and listen well:

Those who sent me here to die

Dwell in ivory towers, far, far away

From the bullets

And burning skies.

(instr)

So, darlin’ don’t you fall for the lies,

I know you’ll be strong for me.

Those making this earth a hell for us

Are closer to you…

Than to me.
