Burns Unit – Send Them Kids To War lyrics

I hear the whisper over the television
Listening to men with ideas but no vision,
Telling you to stop, sit back and listen,
If you don't you won't know what you are missing

Is there anything the small can do about war?
No towers of wealth but a marching freedom call,
When you see these empires fall,
Let it hurt like a kick in the balls

Masked men marching, the question is when?
A billion brothers multiplied by ten,
Sucking vampires of your mente,
What about the ones so poor that they beg for the end to come
But there's no where to go to be sent,
Walking for miles but the same road bends,
Into a city owned by the same men,
Who own the streets, media, lives and rent

What you gonna do when your arms unfold
Busy standing listening and doing what you're told
Mind awake and your heart lying cold
What you gonna do when alone

Send them kids to war
To get a bullet in the head
And tell them what they're living for
Just send them kids to war
And tell they parents that they died for a worthy cause

What are you fighting for?
Think you're fightin for a reason not a kick in the balls
Send them kids to war
Go send them kids to war...

So why you wanna turn a blind eye,
When you hear it and see dumb politicians lie,
But you turn the other way and ignore lives,
Taken by the ones you pay your taxes to abide,
Send your sons and daughters away to die,
Paid for by yourselves and wave goodbye,
They control every aspect of your lives,
So get your ass on the floor and don't ask why

Play by the rules that never make sense,
You pay your road tax, vat and play again,
Big brother has trapped you but you wanna ask when
Are we gonna wake up see and find zen?
But you never really put the effort in,
Ignorance is bliss so you let these kids fend
For themselves till they've got no friends,
Who give a shit that they life is coming to an end

And for what? What are you dying for?
Government sending you to fight their wars,
Break this down and you bridge those walls,
What are you dying for?

Send them kids to war
To get a bullet in the head
And tell them what they're living for
Just send them kids to war
And tell they parents that they died for a worthy cause

What are you fighting for?
Think you're fightin for a reason not a kick in the balls
Send them kids to war
Go send them kids to war...
