War Child

Album: To The Faithful Departed (1996)
  • Who will save the war child baby? Who controls the
    key?
    The web we weave is thick and sordid, fine by me
    At times of war, we're all the losers, there's no victory
    We'll shoot to kill and kill your lover, fine by me

    War child, victim of political pride
    Plant the seed, territorial greed
    Mind the war child, we should mind the war child
    I spent last winter in New York, and came upon a man
    He was sleeping on the streets and homeless,
    he said "I fought in Vietnam"
    Beneath his shirt he wore the mark, he bore the bark
    with pride
    A two inch deep incision carved, into his side

    Who's the loser now, eh?
    Who's the loser now, eh?
    We're all losers now
    We're all losers now
