Onward Christian Soldiers

Onward Christian Soldiers

In the desert far away
Saddam invades Kuwait
Bush had said that it's O.K.
Changed his mind but it's too late

Christian soldier marching as to war
Who tells you
What you're fighting for?

Bright young men go off to fight
And fly silver machines
In the Desert children die
With precision guided screams

Christian soldier...

Nothing but pain
From Saddam Hussein
War is insane
It's no video game
Relatives weep
For oil that's cheap
Stock markets soar
On the fortunes of war

Christian soldier...

Palls of smoke pollute the sky
Huge oil slick kills the sea
Watch the oily seabirds die
On 24 hour T.V.

Christian soldier...

Old men decide
Hung up on their pride
Young lives are gone
Reliving the Somme
Media lies
As humanity dies
Baghdad woman cries
"Remember my eyes!"

Christian soldier...

A hundred thousand, maybe more
Corpses rot in the sun
MassaKurd as they withdraw
Just so George can say he's won

Christian soldier marching as to war
Who tells you
What you're fighting for?

No more war!
