A protest song against war.
"Another song originally written many years ago, in the early nineties. I rewrote the lyrics to suit contemporary times ".
Our history has seen it a million times before
A hundred thousand warriors are marching off to war
They say it's for their country, they slay for liberty
I say a bloody battle it don't make no sense to me

Don't go, this time
Like lambs to the slaughter, marching straight in line
Don't go -this time
It's much more than just another dead man, don't go...

For the riches, for the power, for the gods or for the laws
But the ones doing the fighting are the too brave, young or poor
Rape innocent women, kill the children, wreck cities
For the glory of our leaders, it don't make no sense to me..

Don't go, this time
Like lambs to the slaughter, marching straight in line
Don't go this time,
It's much more than just another dead man… Don't go
Don't go...

Now there's bio-chemical warfare and atom bombs galore
Enough to blow the whole world up a hundred times or more
They say they fight for freedom, I say that isn't free
Free to risk the end of it, don't make no sense to me..

Don't go, this time
Like lambs to the slaughter, marching straight in line
Don't go –this time
It's much more than just another dead man – Don't go..
Don't go..
Don't go..
Don't go !
