David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 21

Album
Name of Song: No reason for war

War to sway business
and covering up crimes,
An effective distraction
for the apathy in minds.

We’re all so used to it,
Been going on for years,
Soldiers and children
sacrificed in tears.

If someone killed your family
wouldn’t you be upset,
Doesn’t make you insurgent,
The killer is the threat.

Chorus
Killing and maiming
and poisoning life,
Have you gone numb
to such irreversible strife.
If you were invaded
would you fight to protect,
Or think they were right
and let your family be wrecked.

Imagine your family
is absorbed by a bomb,
And all that is left
is the head of your mom.
Or maybe your son
was playing in his yard,
And all that remains
is his body so charred.

After nuclear war
there’s nothing to see,
Except lifeless burnt bodies
Now you don’t have to be.

That’s where they’re going,
The warmongers of hate,
They just love to kill
No one left to be great.

That’s where they’re going,
The warmongers of hate,

No one left to be great.
