Lyrics and Music by Lookwood

corneilius.

"This song makes the connection between citizens paying taxes and injuries caused by wars directed by governments, aided and abetted by the media. It also asks why we let them do this with our money, and answers with a commitment to act now, and every day to change this. This version was written before Iraq invasion, the newer version reads "we are going to war, pay your taxes". Please sing with gusto".
We are going to war,
We are going to war..
Send the boys out war
The planes are ready to fly
The bombs are ready to drop, drop, drop
And it's no surprise
When people die far away
And would you speak out,
Do much more than march
Would you risk it all..
Or are we going to war?
Are we going to war?
Are we going to war?

And iIf we are going to war
Can you tell me what is it for?
Is the outcome assured?
Is the intention so pure?
And it's no surprise
When people die far away
Shrapnel takes babies
From the mothers arms
And they lose it all
Are we going to war?
Are we going to war?

Do you believe what you see,
On the TV..
It's the greatest lie ever told,
And we know this one from old
They want to free the people
From the hands of Evil
And it's no surprise
When people die far away
Would you speak out
Do much more than march
Would you risk it all?


Did I speak out
do much more than march
Did I risk it all…?

And if I am to sleep easy
The work of peace must begin
Look in my heart and soul
I ask, ask the question
Why I'm not surprised
When people die far away...
And did I speak out
Do much more than march
Did I risk it all?
Are we going to war?
Are we going to war?
Are we going.. to war..
