Story behind the song
War, especially an unjust and illegal one, is always bad.
Lyrics
Two bullies with their chests pushed out Drawing their lines in the sand Looking for something to fight about Drawing their cards dealt from god’s hand Spin doctors tell us what they want us to hear We must make war so we can make the peace These weapons of mass destruction we fear Designed deployed and staged for release The more that these things change The more that they seem to stay The same There’s no doubt that we’d be waging war It’s more of a question of how many wars we would wage I’m not sure what it is we’re fighting for It’s all designed for the political stage There’s no end of enemies in sight Their rage and passion raised to the boil Yet the first place we go to pick a fight Is land over vast fields of oil The more that these things change The more that they seem to stay The same There’s no sound to rally round Like the saber’s rattle There’s no call stronger than The hue and cry for battle There’s no passion more powerful Than believing you are right Yet all they do is blind you To the light I long for Gandhi and Martin Luther King They could make change by doing what was right We’re stuck with Bush and his war thing The only thing he sees is what is in his gunsight Peace forced by war will never last It’s just tyranny in another form For every life lost in a bomb blast The seed is planted for the next gathering storm The more that these things change The more that they seem to stay The same
