Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are gunning us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?
Tin soldiers and Bush is coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
1,000 dead... oh, no, no!
(How many more?)
Cry for the dead... oh, no, no!
(How many more?)
