Midnight Oil – Armistice Day lyrics

You're watching people fighting you're watching
People losing on Armistice Day
You're watching people fighting
You're watching people losing on Armistice Day

The watchers do the wincing reporters so convincing
But the two never lies
I went looking for a war but the only guns I saw
Never used in anger

You're watching people fight, say they fight
Oh say they lose on Armistice Day

The fixers do the fixing the locals do the lynching the papers deny
I went looking for a headline got talking to the backline
They'd never seen the action
