we all go to war

The human species has a history of rallying around great causes and going to war. War is an inherent part of the human condition. It is built into our genes. The causes that we fight for are far from being the reason we fight. We fight because our nature tells us that that's the way to solve the problem. War is in our genes.

There are other ways to solve problems, but we have yet to reach the consciousness that makes them implementable when we face large scale confrontation. The fact is, though, that if we fail to learn how to solve the problem of war, we will eventually blow ourselves into oblivion because we now have the power to do just that. The fact that we have that power, means that someday, somewhere, somehow we will do it.

Eternal non-implementation of atomic destruction is statistically very unlikely unless we figure ourselves out. Unless we conquer war, it's in the cards that we will eventually annhilate our children. This song was written to address this issue.

WE ALL GO TO WAR

We all work and we all play

And we all pray we'll have our day

And most of us think it's o.k.

that we've been taught along the way -

We all go to war

 

We all spit.

We all piss and shit.

We all fart, and then we die.

We all love and we all cry,

and lots of us keep wondering why,

We all go to war.

CHORUS:  Oh, it may be for the I.R.A.,

or it may be for the Taliban.

It may be for us bloody Brits,

Kamakazee, Vietcong.

Somewhere deep inside is war,

and somewhere there we know it's wrong --

Somewhere deep inside a lonely song.

 

A trillion medals on girls and boys..

A trillion families lives destroyed..

The war of war will fill the void!!!

Step up proud and be deployed!!!

We all go to war.

CHORUS : Oh, it may be for the I.R.A.,

or it may be for the Taliban.

It may be for us bloody Brits,

Kamakazee, Vietcong.

Somewhere deep inside is war, and somewhere there we know it's wrong --

Somewhere deep inside a lonely song.

 

A simple man climbs a great big hill.

He takes a stand - they're fighting still..

War on war.. "Refuse to kill."

Step up proud. turn your cheek.

Our love's an act of will..

We all go to war.
