"War TV" Lyrics

Gerry Cinnamon Lyrics


"War TV"

[Intro:]
«You’re welcomed with the old ones of your tribe, that is the only way to learn.»
«I’ll give you a hot drink, miss.»
«Why not some dry clothes next?»

[David Cameron:]
«I do believe it’s important work for our national security right here at home, but of course this work will increasingly be carried out by Afghan soldiers, and we all want to see that transition take place.»

[Gerry Cinnamon:]
There’s a war on the TV in a town called the world
And the suits turn their profit while the mayhem unfurls
They’re all quick to make war but they won’t send their sons
Shout the odds like a gangster but they won’t hold a gun

And I’m no’ scared of dying I’ll fight any man
I might no’ be the strongest but I’ll do what I can
And I’m no’ that religious but if God’s got a plan
Then I don’t think it’s bombing in a far away land

And there’s no use pretending that you don’t understand
With your arse in the air and your head in the sand
You don’t need me tell you that’s the way that it goes
Because deep down inside…
Way deep down inside you already know

[Robert Middleton:]
«If you are not close to home when you hear the warning, go to the nearest safe cover. Know where you are to go or ask an older person for help. You know the places marked with the «S» sign… those are safe places to go when you hear the alarm.»

[Gerry Cinnamon:]
I don’t mean to offend or add fuel to the fire
We’re all stood in silence while the head count gets higher
There’s divided opinion every corner you turn
Now Nero stands laughing while the Empire burns

And there’s no use pretending that you don’t understand
With your arse in the air and your head in the sand
You don’t need me tell you that’s the way that it goes
Because deep down inside…
Way deep down inside you already know

[Robert Middleton:]
«Paul and Patty would have covered this way, like this girl. Heavy doorways are a good way to duck and cover, she will be safer too. Here’s Tony going to his cub scout meeting. Tony knows the bomb can go off any time of the year, day or night.»

[Gerry Cinnamon:]
There’s a race to the finish from the east to the west
‘Cause we’re all waking up now where there’s some try their best
To divide us and conquer like chickens and cows
On the animal farm as the sun’s going down

And there’s no use pretending that you don’t understand
With your arse in the air and your head in the sand
You don’t need me tell you that’s the way that it goes
Because deep down inside…
Way deep down inside
Way deep down inside
Way deep down inside you already know
