The Battle of the Hearts and Minds.

Tune: Joshua Fit the Battle.

M. Langford, 20.11.10 - 18.01.11
CHORUS:

We’re winning in the Battle of The Hearts and Minds

We’re saving lives, we’re gaining time.

We’re winning in the Battle of The Hearts and Minds -

We’d love you in our ranks - N Palestine will be free.

Who says we’re flowery peace-nik fools - So wafty and niave.

Cause we won’t scorch and trash the earth, To eat and live and breath. Who says that you can always have, A war that never ends?

Who says that you can massacre - And never make amends?

................ CHORUS.
We won’t ’quiesse to your world view - That ‘Might’ is somehow ‘Right’.

We’ll purge your frantic itch to scratch - Your vicious itch to fight.

You’re stalking / prowling round the world - I/T vultures of the night.

Proped up at some laser screens, Ya twiddle knobs to fight.

................ CHORUS.
You drop ya kiddies off ta school - N kiss the babes good-bye.

Then go n slaughter non-white folks, From drones high in the sky.

Air-cond office in Nevada, Or the Negev’s stolen lands

Pumping with your joy-stick gun - A god with blood stained hands.

................ CHORUS.
We’ve watched you storming off to war - Demanding endless praise.

’N nursed ya crippled black dog years, And drunken-addled days.

We’re going trash your armaments - Make ploughshares of ya guns.

We’ll do it for our children’s sake - And all life yet to come.

................ CHORUS.

Who says that you can massacre - And never make amends? …….CHORUS.


The tallons of your bastardry claws the soul and never heals

The truth of all your purfidy is endless killing fields. ................ CHORUS.

We won’t forgive Guantanamo, and all your secret sites,

We won’t forget your lawlessness and trampled human rights.

................ CHORUS.
We’ve watched you storming off to war - Demanding endless praise.

’N nursed ya crippled black dog years, And drunken-addled days.

................ CHORUS.
You know we know you’re full of lies, And cankered through with hate,

Ya Empire’s now a toxic dump - Your madness cruelled our fate.

................ CHORUS
We’re going trash your armaments - Make ploughshares of ya guns.

We’ll do it for our children’s sake - And all life yet to come. ……… CHORUS.

"A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, 'This way of settling differences is not just'... A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death." – Martin Luther King.

* “By what authority do succeeding generations of leaders in the nuclear -weapons states usurp the power to dictate the odds of continued life on our planet? Most urgently, why does such breathtaking audacity persist at the moment when we should stand trembling in the face of our folly and united in our commitment to abolish it’s most deadly manifestations?”

Former head of US Stratergic Command, General Lee Butler, quoted in Noan Chomsky “Hopes & Prospects”, Penguin edition, Aust 2010. p 165.
