The War goes on [Song]

THE WAR GOES ON
By Singing Sandra

Devastation and destruction from ever since time began
Has been inflicted time and time and again by man against fellow man
Yet man wouldn't learn from history, it makes him more violent
Producing deadly weaponry with nothing but evil intent
So the war could never be over, peace will never be seen
Long as man in his quest for power
Keep destroying fellow human beings, fellow human beings.

I telling you nobody [nobody] woh-oh-oh nobody,
When you really think of it, nobody wins a war
Because the agony of defeat will linger
Nations still hating one another
And superpowers, they looking for more power
As long as violence and aggression still dwell in the hearts of man
Brother, the war will go on, it cannot be won
No-no-no, the war will go on, it cannot be won.

Fallout from war is chaos, plenty agony, plenty pain
Economies left in shambles that may never rise up again
Collapse of the money system, disruption of foreign trade
People turning against their leaders for the blunders that they have made
Environmental pollution, radiation taking its course
And the thousands that die in battle,
Oh, what a waste of human resource, of course.

I telling you nobody [nobody] woh-oh-oh nobody,
When you really think of it, nobody wins a war
The brutal clash of ideologies, carnage and social anarchy
And life reduced to pitiful dimensions
The falling back of progress and growth for entire generation
Sister, the war will go on, it cannot be won
No-no-no-no, the war will go on, it cannot be won.

War is just like a racket, it pays dividends for a few
But what does it profit the masses, I mean laymen like me and you?
While the leaders playing their chess games using the masses as pawns
With political propaganda, the massacre still goes on
The soldiers they never start it but they give their lives easily
While the leaders are in a safe place working out strategies, so you see...

I telling you nobody [nobody] woh-oh-oh nobody,
When you really look art it, nobody wins a war
It has stained the passage of history with the blood of the weak and the mighty
Great, great cultures vanish completely
War can create and destroy political boundaries as it goes on
Sister, it cannot be won, the war will go on
No-no-no-no, the war will go on, it cannot be won.

The object of war is simple, just conquer and take over
It doesn't matter how many people get wipe out in the massacre
The enemy must be vanquished, the battle has to be won
But the conflict will never be over 'cause the agony lingers on
There'll always be more dictators, more Hitlers, more Saddam Husseins
And with these lunatics in power, it will just start all over again, and again.

I telling you nobody [nobody] woh-oh-oh nobody,
When you really think of it, nobody wins a war
We need a spiritual revolution to stop this brutal aggression
Or else peace in the world will always be out of our hands
As long as the quest for wealth and power still live in the hearts of man
Brother, the war will go on, it cannot be won
No-no-no-no, the war will go on, it cannot be won.

[The war will go on, it cannot be won]
Peace in the world. [The war will go on, it cannot be won]
We need a spiritual revolution. [The war will go on, it cannot be won]
Lord, put a hand. Save the children. [The war will go on, it cannot be won]
Man fighting against man.

[The war will go on, it cannot be won
The war will go on, it cannot be won
The war will go on, it cannot be won...]

Spiritual revolution...

A Note From The Gull


Thank you, Singing Sandra.    

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
