WAR RAGING INSIDE.mp3

 

            A

On the fourth day of October the slaughterhouses never close

 

On the fourth some laboratory test animal gets its lethal dose

                    G

Like all the other days of the year the zoo is opening its gate

                  A

To display pitiful helpless creatures in an often deplorable state

                      G                 F                    E   

Better get on level, we’re dragging our feet

            D                 A              B                             E

We’re draining the planet, we need more than we need

 

 

 

Chorus:

 

              A

And the war keeps raging inside

E

Through your daily business

                  A

A nervous wife, hyper active kids

                                 E

And too long on the job

                          D

And they said : fight

                                     A         E

You can get as rich as Nabob

        A

And agression keeps lurking inside

             E

In your everpresent longing

       A   

For status through means of money

                                  E

You war-mongering fool

                             D                             E

It aint’t what you have, it’s what you are

                   A

Go back to school

 

 

 

On the 25th of December the white world proclaims its 2 day peace

And one talks about decent manners

Enjoying French Wine and far away cheese

But who are we to say that  only we are into the right thing

When others struggle and strive to survive

Because the climate’s getting grim

Better get on level (etc.)

 

Chorus:

And  the war keeps raging inside (etc.)

 

 

The fight for the right to work is over, facts overtook the workingman’s dream

Though too many can’t get figured out

What is already real

Expansion can’t go on forever

The sky’s the limit is a lie

Either we choose for destruction

Or get together by and by

Better get on level (etc.)

 

Chorus:

And the war keeps raging (etc.)
