my lyricsbox
In the house of the almighty lord
They all shall come, the great and small
They have-nots, and the have-it shall enter.
A body from a foreign war
Is draped in flag, the bugle calls
To prey in sorrow, bless the cause
Shall we not remember?

But would the man from Verdun speak
Of glory if he laid a wreath?
And if the Empire called again, would he defend her?

And what of those who held Madrid
While powers stalled and freedom hid?
Or those that kept the Athens bridge,
Traitored by the allied kiss?
Shall we not remember?

And who believes he came to die
For uniforms where padres hide
To bless the violence from our side,
Knowing smaller nations cry.
"Thou shalt not kill" - unless of course
The weak shall try and share the earth
With those who found their power of birth
Shall we not remember.
This song is from the album "Mick And Caroline".
