Soldiers Of Peace (clip)
Soldiers of peace sending troops to do their fighting.
They run the wars in their white shirts and ties.
They say, “It's for your country, it's a wrong you’re righting.”
They are so used to telling those kinds of lies.
Upon the waters they send their war ships sailing.
They say, “The people who want peace don't understand.”
They say they're trying to help the countries that are ailing.
When what they're after are the riches of those lands.
Their smiles are hollow, while they work the crowds by waving.
They speak from rooms that once stood for honesty.
In the tree of history a sad tale they're engraving.
They speak of values while they mock morality.
Soldiers of peace sending kids to hide their lying.
Soldiers of peace sending kids to shield their ruse.
They never hear the sounds of soldiers' mothers crying.
No matter how it ends, the people always lose.
