Duck & cover in the tower of babel
train your children to sit under tables
a warm rain but a chill in the air
can't they tell that there's people down there?

forward as one
not marching as to war
forward as one
not marching as to war
forward as one, forward as one
forward as one
not marching as to war

i have a father & he fought in the jungle
he lost a brother, so i lost an uncle
life's a gas, hah!, life's a scream
in the army, navy, airforce, marines

forward as one
not marching as to war
forward as one
not marching as to war
hear the officer "hup two three..."
forward as one forward as one
forward as one
not marching as to war

either you like it or you don't
but somebodies pushing, stabbing you down
either you like it or you don't
but somebodies pushing, stabbing you down

all around you under curfew
people see but minds are shattered
hypnotized & disillusioned
watch the times now, more confusion
on the streets there's escalation
stop, think, what could happen?
turn around but keep your mind on
what could happen, pure destruction

either you like it or you don't
but somebodies pushing, stabbing you down
either you like it or you don't
but somebodies pushing, stabbing you down

law & order, natural order
obviously out of order
what's to come of my generation?
give the thought some huh! penetration
on the streets there's escalation
conscription soon take over
join the army be a soldier
what's the fight for, law & order?

either you like it or you don't
but somebodies pushing, stabbing you down
either you like it or you don't
but somebodies pushing, stabbing you down

duck & cover in the tower of babel
train your children to sit under tables
a warm rain but a chill in the air
can't they tell that there's people down there?
just like my father who fought in the jungle
he lost a brother, so i lost an uncle
life's a gas, arrgh, life's a scream
in the army, navy, airforce, marines

forward as one
not marching as to war
forward as one
not marching as to war
hear the officer "hup two three..."
forward as one forward as one
forward as one,
not marching as to war
