Culture Shock – Northern Ireland lyrics

Northern Ireland
Situation
War, within a single nation
No one thinks of it as war
That's what television's for

Embroidering reality, with clichйs and???
We'll call this war the 'troubles'
Confuse the masses with initials
(Ira, uva, uva, ira, ila, iuc)
There's so many sides involved
And no one thinks it can be solved
Avoidance of the history of suppression, death and misery
Will leave the people, ignorant of everything that's relevant

So who is who defending, and who's protecting who?
Until you know the answers, don't pretend you do do do do don't pretend you do!

So we see the brave young soldiers
And we read about the murders
Then we place our weak opinions
On what the papers tell us
But telling half the truth is as bad as telling lies

For a war to keep continuing
There has to be two sides!

But who is who defending, who's protecting who?
Until you know the answers, don't pretend you do do do do don't pretend you do!

Supporting one side or the other
Is really nothing more
Than saying there is no solution
But to carry on the war

And both the ira and the army
Are equally to blame
In general terms of violence
You know they're doing just, they're doing just, they're doing just the same
Doing just the same

So who is who defending, and who's protecting who?
Until you know the answers, don't pretend you do do do do don't pretend you do!
Don't pretend you do, don't pretend you do, don't pretend you do do do do do
