Despondent – Dying To Defend lyrics

What drives a man to dying to defend;
A government that never listened to a single word he said.
And when there isn't any threat - does he question their intent?
Well, he's just a victim, and you're a witness,
An accessory to the crown.
Taught not to question; independence is a threat.
And there's no room for hesitation when the orders have been sent.
He wears an emblem on his chest, does he know what it represents?
He's just a victim, and you're a witness,
An accessory to the crown.
And do the spin doctors expect us to really just accept
All the lies that they invent?
Well, he's just a victim, and you're a witness,
An accessory to the crown.
Well my defiance is so easy to condemn,
My point of view so cynical so simple to forget.
And when these men are lying dead;
Will you spare a thought for them, oh do you really fuckin care?
