the war 5

Songs about War:

1. 99 Luft Balloons, Nena
99 red balloons.
floating in the summer sky.
Panic bells, it's red alert.
There's something here from somewhere else.
The war machine springs to life
(Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
Und fuehlten sich gleich angemacht)

2. Modern Day Cowboy, Tesla
So here we are and we've come this far, but it's only getting worse
Foreign lands with their [terrace] demands, only cost a good heart
The U.S.A., the U.S.S.R., with their six-guns to their side
I see the message written on the wall, to my chain-gun deep inside

3. Red Skies at Night, The Fixx
Someone's taking over
And it looks like they're aiming right at you
Someone says, "We'll be dead by morning"
Someone cries, leaving
Red eyes at night, red eyes at night

4. Two Minutes to Midnight, Iron Maiden
The killer's breed or the demon's seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
But don't you pray for my soul anymore
2 minutes to midnight, the hands that threaten doom

5. Almost any Slayer song

Do you want me to stop or keep going?

I'm done. Back to your regularly scheduled bile and hatred in the morning.

Comments

OOH! Sing the Iron Maiden song again?
I love that song!!!!

This works best if you think of Saddam Hussein:

Generals gathered in their masses
just like witches at black masses
evil minds that plot destruction
sorcerers of death's construction
in the fields the bodies burning
as the war machine keeps turning
death and hatred to mankind
poisoning their brainwashed minds, oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
they only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world stops turning
ashes were the bodies burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of god has struck the hour
Day of judgement, god is calling
on their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings

OH LORD YEAH!

Good one, Dean. But it must be the Faith No More version. I insist.

Oingo Boingo has several good war songs, like "Just Another Day" "Nothing To Fear" and "Little Guns". Of course, Nothing to Fear adds pedophilia to the mix, but hey, what can you say, Danny has issues,but he writes damn fine music.....
@SONG: Nothing To Fear (But Fear Itself)
Hey neighbor let me give you some advice
The Russians are about to pulverize us In our sleep tonight
That is if the crazy Arabs Or the riots don't get us first
And the fire will rain down from the sky
The fire will rain down from the sky
People will die--People will die
People will die--People will die
But go ahead sleep tight in your beds
Remember what the wise man said
CHORUS There's nothing to fear nothing to fear
There's nothing to fear nothing to fear
There's nothing to fear (but fear itself)
There's nothing to fear (but fear itself)
And the temperature's starting to drop now
The temperature's starting to drop now
The temperature's starting to drop now . . .

Hey little girl won't you come this way
Won't you let me buy you candy or perhaps a chocolate shake
Or perhaps some nice cocaine or perhaps a little kiss
Or perhaps a ride in my big car Perhaps a ride in my big car
Won't you make an old man happy
Won't you make an old man happy
Won't you let me show you paradise (Don't ask your mother for advice)
CHORUS

If they don't turn you into a junkie or a zombie on the street
If they don't turn you into a yo-cat or a grinning Jesus freak
If they don't take away your brains or turn your body inside out
If they don't take away your passion with a color TV set
They'll take away your heart and soul
They'll take away your heart and soul
They'll take away your heart and soul
Don't let them take away your heart and soul
But remember what the wise man said
CHORUS

top five reasons to stay up all night reading a small victory:

1. exciting Zim and Gir quotes. "You! Obey the fist!"
2. visions of Michele weilding the fist.
3. occasional photos of choice tits.
4. language enrichment. ie: "fucknozzle", "Mount BiteMe".
5. kissing Michele's right-wing Republican rear.

Randy Newman - Political Science

No one likes us
I don't know why.
We may not be perfect
But heaven knows we try.
But all around even our old friends put us down.
Let's drop the big one and see what happens.

We give them money
But are they grateful?
No they're spiteful
And they're hateful.
They don't respect us so let's surprise them;
We'll drop the big one and pulverize them.

Now Asia's crowded
And Europe's too old.
Africa's far too hot,
And Canada's too cold.
And South America stole our name.
Let's drop the big one; there'll be no one left to blame us.

Bridge:
We'll save Australia;
Don't wanna hurt no kangaroo.
We'll build an all-American amusement park there;
They've got surfing, too.

Well, boom goes London,
And boom Paris.
More room for you
And more room for me.
And every city the whole world round
Will just be another American town.
Oh, how peaceful it'll be;
We'll set everybody free;
You'll have Japanese kimonos, baby,
There'll be Italian shoes for me.
They all hate us anyhow,
So let's drop the big one now.
Let's drop the big one now.

It's late, and I don't know if I have all the words right, but here goes:

Oliver's Army

Don't start that talking
I could talk all night
My mind goes sleep walkin'
While I'm puttin' the world to right
Call careers information
Got yourself an occupation

Oliver's army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
Than here today

There was a checkpoint Charlie
He didn't crack a smile
But it's no laughing party
When you've been on the murder mile
Only takes one inch of trigger
One more widow, one less white nigger

Oliver's army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
Than here today

Hong Kong is up for grabs
London is full of Ab's
We could be in Palestine
Overrun by the Chinese line
With the boys from the Mersey
And the Thames and the Tyne

But there's no danger
It's a professional carrer
Though it could be arranged
With just a word in Mr. Churchill's ear
If you're out of luck or out of work
We could send you to Johannesburg

Oliver's army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
Than here today
And I would rather be anywhere else
Than here today [repeat and fade]

My what a happy fun topic.
Some favs:

Peace sells...,but who's buying?--Megadeath
What do you mean, "I don't believe in God"?
I talk to him every day.
What do you mean, "I don't support your system"?
I go to court when I have to.
What do you mean, "I can't get to work on time"?
I got nothing better to do
And, what do you mean, "I don't pay my bills"?
Why do you think I'm broke? Huh?
Chorus:
If there's a new way,
I'll be the first in line.
But, it better work this time.
What do you mean, "I hurt your feelings"?
I didn't know you had any feelings.
What do you mean, "I ain't kind"?
I'm just not your kind.
What do you mean, "I couldn't be president, of the United States of America"?
Tell me something, it's still "We the people", right?
Chorus: (repeat)
If there's a new way
I'll be the first in line,
But, it better work this time.
Can you put a price on peace?
Peace,
Peace sells...,
Peace,
Peace sells...,
Peace sells...,but who's buying?
Peace sells...,but who's buying?
Peace sells...,but who's buying?
Peace sells...,but who's buying?
[Peace sells...,but who's buying? n+1 times more]
No, peace sells...

Bad Religion: Atomic Garden
everybody wants to dance in a playpen
but nobody wants to play in my garden
i see the hippies on an angry line
guess they don't get my meaning
i'm enchanted by the birds in my blossoms
i'm enamored by young lovers on the weekend
i like the fourth of july
when bombs start flashing
and i wish i had a shiny red top
a bugle with a big brass bell would cheer me up
or maybe something bigger that could really go pop!
so i could make the gardening stop
come out to play
come out to play
and we'll pretend it's christmas day
in my atomic garden
all my scientists are working on a deadline
so my psychologist is working day and nighttime
they say they know what's best for me
but they don't know what there doing
and i'm glad i'm not gorbachev
'cause i'd wiggle all night
like jelly in a pot
at least he's got a garden with a fertile plot
and a party that will never stop
i hope there's nothing wrong out there
i'm watching from my room inside my room

"Cities in Dust" by Siouxie and the Banshees
Water was running; children were running
You were running out of time
Under the mountain, a golden fountain
Were you praying at the Lares shrine?
But oh your city lies in dust, my friend
We found you hiding---we found you lying
choking on the dirt and sand
Your former glories and all the stories
Dragged and washed with eager hands
oh your city lies in dust, my friend
Hot and burning---in your nostrils
pouring down your gaping mouth
Your molten bodies---blanket of cinders
caught in the throes...
And your city lies in dust

The Dogs Of War--Pink Floyd
Dogs of war and men of hate
With no cause, we don't discriminate
Discovery is to be disowned
Our currency is flesh and bone
Hell opened up and put on sale
Gather round and haggle
For hard cash, we will lie and deceive
Even our masters don't know the webs we weave
On world, it's a battleground
One world and they smash it down
One world…one world
Invisible transfers, long distance calls
Hollow laughter in marble halls
Steps have been taken, a silent uproar
Has unleashed, the dogs of war
You can't stop what has begun
Signed, sealed, they deliver oblivion
We all have a dark side, to say the least
And dealing in death is the nature of the beast
On world, it's a battleground
One world and they smash it down
One world…one world
The Dogs of War don't negotiate
The Dogs of War won't capitulate
They will take and you will give
And you must die so that they may live
You can knock at any door
But wherever you go, you know they've been there before
Well winners can lose and things can get strained
But whatever you change, you know the dogs remain
On world, it's a battleground
One world and we're going to smash it down
One world…one world


"Fight Fire With Fire" by Metallica
Do unto others as they have done unto you
But what in the hell is this world coming to?
Blow the universe into nothingness
Nuclear warfare shall lay us to rest
Chorus:
Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear
We shall die
Time is like a fuse, short and burning fast
Armageddon is here, like said in the past
Chorus:
Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear
We shall die
Soon to fill our lungs the hot winds of death
The gods are laughing, so take your last breath
Chorus:
Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear
We shall die

"Hallowed Ground" by Violent Femmes
Everyone's trying to decide,
where to go when there's no place to hide.
I follow the bombs as they're coming down.
This must have been hallowed ground.
No matter what they decide to have done.
Burn up the clouds, block out the sun.
My hope is in one they can't bring down.
My soul is in hallowed ground.
I see the fear, it's on the rise.
Let's catch the enemy by surprise.
Burry your treasure where it can't be found.
Burry it deep in hallowed ground.

"Kinky Sex Makes the World Go Around" by Dead Kennedys
It's easy. We've got our college kids so interested in beer they don't even care if we start manufacturing germ bombs again. Put a nuclear stockpile in their back yard, they wouldn't even know what it looked like...
So how 'bout it? Look - war is money. The arms manufacturers tell me unless we get our bomb factories up to full production the whole economy is going to collapse...

"Part III" by Bad Religion
The final page is written in the books of history
As man unleashed his deadly bombs and sent troops overseas
To fight a war which can't be won and kills the human race
A show of greed and ignorance, man's quest for dominance
They say when a mistake is made, a lesson has been learned
But this time, there's no second chance, the hate engulfs the world
A million lives are lost each day, a city slowly burns
A mother holds her dying child, but no one is concerned

"Two Suns In The Sunset" by Pink Floyd
in my rear view mirror the sun is going down
sinking behind bridges in the road
and i think of all the good things
that we have left undone
and i suffer premonitions
confirm suspicions
of the holocaust to come
the wire that holds the cork
that keeps the anger in
gives way
and suddenly it's day again
the sun is in the east
even though the day is done
two suns in the sunset
hmmmmmmmmm
could be the human race is run
like the moment when your brakes lock
and you slide toward the big truck
and stretch the frozen moments with your fear
and you'll never hear their voices
and you'll never see their faces
you have no recourse to the law anymore
and as the windshield melts
my tears evaporate
leaving only charcoal to defend
finally i understand
the feelings of the few
ashes and diamonds
foe and friend
we were all equal in the end

Oh and by the way, Black Sabbath's road crew could do War Pigs better than Faith No More,in my opinion.

p

Oh man, I thought I was the last Iron Maiden fan left alive. So glad to know I'm not alone....

The Trooper was even better war tune though...

Your picture of yourself is a media myth
Underneath this floor we're on the edge of a cliff
Someone told me Jesus was the Devil's lover
While we masturbated on a magazine cover
Dead in the streets
Who's that girl?
Ireland screams
Africa burns
Suburbia stumbles
The tides are turned
I can feel the fear in the Western world

Uhh, you haven't been playing Grand Theft Auto, Vice City, by any chance?

"Cities in Dust" is about the destruction of Pomeii by the eruption of Vesuvius, silly person.
