Dagens sång.

Kör ju igång med en vecko utmaning idag och först ut är att välja ut dagens sång. Och jag har valt Civil war med Slash och Myles Kennedy när de spelar den akustisk för första gången någonsin.

What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.
 Some men you just can’t reach…
 So, you get what we had here last week,
 Which is the way he wants it !
 Well, he gets it !
 N’ I don’t like it any more than you men.
 
Look at your young men fighting
 Look at your women crying
 Look at your young men dying
 The way they’ve always done before
Look at the hate we’re breeding
 Look at the fear we’re feeding
 Look at the lives we’re leading
 The way we’ve always done before
 
My hands are tied
 The billions shift from side to side
 And the wars go on with brainwashed pride
 For the love of God and our human rights
 And all these things are swept aside
 By bloody hands time can’t deny
 And are washed away by your genocide
 And history hides the lies of our civil wars
 
D’you wear a black armband
 When they shot the man
 Who said ”Peace could last forever”
 And in my first memories
 They shot Kennedy
 I went numb when I learned to see
 So I never fell for Vietnam
 We got the wall of D.C. to remind us all
 That you can’t trust freedom
 When it’s not in your hands
 When everybody’s fightin’
 For their promised land
 
And I don’t need your civil war
 It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
 You’re power hungry sellin’ soldiers
 In a human grocery store
 Ain’t that fresh
 I don’t need your civil war
 
Look at the shoes you’re filling
 Look at the blood we’re spilling
 Look at the world we’re killing
 The way we’ve always done before
 Look in the doubt we’ve wallowed
 Look at the leaders we’ve followed
 Look at the lies we’ve swallowed
 And I don’t want to hear no more
 
My hands are tied
 For all I’ve seen has changed my mind
 But still the wars go on as the years go by
 With no love of God or our human rights
 and all these dreams are swept aside
 By bloody hands of the hypnotized
 Who carry the cross of homicide
 And history bears the scars of our civil wars
 
We practice selective annihilation
 Of mayors and government officials
 For example to create a vacuum
 Then we fill that vacuum
 As popular war advances
 Peace is closer
 
I don’t need your civil war
 It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
 You’re power hungry sellin’ soldiers
 In a human grocery store
 Ain’t that fresh
 And I don’t need your civil war
 I don’t need your civil war
 I don’t need your civil war
 You’re power hungry sellin’ soldiers
 In a human grocery store
 Ain’t that fresh
 I don’t need your civil war
 I don’t need one more war
 
I don’t need one more war
 Whaz so civil ’bout war anyway?
