Against Me! – White People For Peace lyrics

East and West could not agree
So their generals gave a call and gathered troops at the border
With guns ready, drawn and aimed
Each side was praying to a God
To bless them with strength and courage
It was in His name that artillery lit the sky on fire
The people sang protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun

Protest Songs in a response to Military Aggression
Protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun
But the battle raged on......

Sirens filled the air and the ground shook with war
Civilian casualties has been a cost that was predetermined
When interviewed for report victims pleaded in frustration
Their claim: That this was a war without reason
Bureaucrats engaged in debate to try and reach a resolution
The people sang protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun

Protest Songs in a response to Military Aggression
Protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun
But the battle raged on......

The Broadcast like their prayers went unanswered and ignored
God, like the rest of the world, just watched in silence
There was purpose to be served, there were fortunes to be earned
Before a peace could be called to stop the fighting

Protest Songs in a response to Military Aggression
Protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun
But the battle raged on......

    That songs and demonstrations without action are ineffectual against a foreign policy and government who's only concerns are lucrative companies who prosper from war (many of whom have shares in said companies). And yet, people still die in the name of 'freedom'. The people need to realise that it is them who control the government and not the other way around. "if there is hope, it lies in the proles".
