Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Song For William Kristol & Charles Krauthammer

All We Need Is A War We Can Win

in the next war
the one that we can win
there will be celebrations
we’ll all be joining in
we’ll get there early
and open up the gates
our soldiers will come home
live like kings back in the states
what a beautiful fate
what a beautiful fate

i remember the last war
and the one before that
we had all the answers
we were standing pat
but when the bodies
the wounded and the sad
came home to america
it was too darn bad
one less mother, one less dad
one less mother, one less dad

(chorus)
tell me again and again and again
how it is that we will win
support the troops and the little children
let’s do it again
let’s do it again
let’s do it again
all we need is a war we can win
let’s do it again
let’s do it again
all we need is a war we can win

in the very next war
we will liberate the damned
we will stand as champions
just like in vietnam
we will have all the answers
for a world so full of hate
we will set everyone free
yes, we are that great

now, some people
don’t know how to be free
they are hiding in the shadows
they can barely see
if they don’t come out
we’ll be going in
if they don’t want freedom
we will kill them all again

(chorus)
tell me again and again and again
how it is that we will win
support the troops and the little children
let’s do it again
let’s do it again
let’s do it again
all we need is a war we can win
let’s do it again
let’s do it again
all we need is a war we can win

in the next war
the one that we can win
there will be celebrations
we’ll all be joining in
we’ll get there early
and open up the gates
our soldiers will come home
live like kings back in the states
what a beautiful fate
what a beautiful fate

i remember the last war
and the one before that
we had all the answers
we were standing pat
but when the bodies
the wounded and the sad
came home to america
it was too darn bad
one less mother, one less dad
one less mother, one less dad

(acapella)
one less mother, one less dad
one less mother, one less dad
let’s do it again
one less mother, one less dad
one less mother, one less dad
all we need is a war we can win
let’s do it again
one less mother, one less dad

(contrapuntal)
let’s do it again
let’s do it again
let’s do it again
all we need is a war we can win
let’s do it again
let’s do it again
all we need is a war we can win
