Words and music by Holly Near
Originally recorded on Fire in the Rain, re-recorded on HARP in a medley with Marvin Gaye's What's Goin' On, medley reissued on HARP: A Time To Sing
Why do we kill people who are killing people
To show that killing people is wrong?
What a foolish notion, that war is called devotion
When the greatest warriors
Are the ones who stand for peace

War toys are growing stronger
The problem stays the same
The young ones join the army
While General What's-His-Name
Is feeling full of pride
That the army will provide
But does he ask himself


Death row is growing longer
The problem stays the same
The poor ones get thrown in prison
While warden What's-His-Name
Is feeling justified
But when will the law be tried
For never asking


Bridge: Children are so tender.
They will cross the earth if they think they are saving a friend.
They get drawn in by patriot lies, right before our eyes, they leave our homes
And then they find out once they're all alone. They keep asking the age old question.
