Tin Soldiers

Written By: R.Stanway, G Stanway, G, Stevenson, D.West

it feels like yesterday when I joined the army
cause I had nuttin going for me
and now I regretting it so much
with all that hypocrisy
that didn’t show it to me
and I don’t mind serving my nation
but all I see is that we’re the invasion
are we blind cause we ain’t gunna find wat they sed we’re gunna find they just read between the lines
we got a job and its not even our beef
I hear voices everytime that I try to sleep
it doesn’t make sense sleeping in tents,
losing friends everytime I’m deep in the trench.
And one thing that we need to ask bush
Is where we were last week wen we all got ambushed.
Alright that’s enuf about the sorrow
I hope I’m still hear so I can write about tomorrow

Its been the fifth day we been pinned down
and we’re already 25 men down.
N I dunno if I should be apart of this
I don’t have that type of blood up in my arteries.
Do u know how many troops must have died
and how much proof just been brushed aside.
I feel like this war has been unjustified
Will we survive?
Well I’m a let bush decide
Last nite, 9 hour fight
Sun went down but the sky stayed bright I
Held my crucifixe so tight
And the picture of my kid with my beautiful wife
And I don’t wanna be no veteran
With the last few left of the regiment
We’re fighting in a war that will never end
Who do we blame?
U mr. president!

After today we’ll never win.
This is been the worst that it’s ever been.
Armageddon’s headin in.
you shudda seen the red carpet of blood we were tredding in.
the stress will come n kill u if u let him in.(I’ve let him in).
the war syndromes started settin in.
i hold a full metal jacket while I pray
my dreams are getting worse now they happin in the day
I feel I’ve been coned into war
we’re bombing everybody wats wrong wit us all
there we go again the voice that I’ve been hearing telling that we’re getting closer to the end
they tell me to resign.
I can see sign stepping up to salvation as I cline
Friendly fire’s on my mind
I think it that time baby girl I hope I see u on the other side

Pure

Written By: G.Stanway, D.West, G. Stevenson

PURE

Verse 1

I was born on the site of a third-stage wasteland
Fields were bare, skies were grey, no-one cared
No-one smiled as they passed….
Rumours heard of a time we can only imagine
cos nothing here is pure anymore

Verse 2

Any soul who can choose has a place in the new world
Second chance, promised land, nothing planned
Wave this failure goodbye
Many years in a dream, I know it sounds crazy its time to awaken
Cos nothing here is pure anymore

Chorus

We can breathe in new life
We can find our new home
Even see a sunrise
Cos nothing here is pure anymore

Verse 3 ideas

On a bed turned to ice didn’t wake for a lifetime
All was dark all was still all I knew was a tear on my face
Through the dark, shards of white, burn a hole, I remember….
That nothing there is pure anymore.

On return, broke the deal, damaged good will be paid for.
Out on loan for a while every child has the right to enjoy.
Look around, higher ground, dead oceans rising
And nothing here is pure anymore…

Shut The World Out

Written By: Stanway

I’m gonna shut the real world out.

Verse 1

Chorus

You gotta put your trust in me,
cos I'll always be your baby
You think you know what’s best for me,
hell you’re tryin to drive me crazy
You overload me with your rules,
but you know I’m gonna break ‘em
I ain’t gonna watch the news,
full of liars, I just can’t take ‘em

You gotta put your trust in me,
cos these are my mistakes I’m makin’
I’ll be home by ten you’ll see,
you don’t have to sit there shakin’
I will choose the best I can,
I can’t go out with Jesus
So I’ll just slip on me cans,
and let the music fill my head,
I’m gonna shut the real world out.

There’s a light up in the sky, is there someone watching over
Do you think they see us cry, just when we think the best is over.
Can they take away our fears, can they heal a mind that’s breaking

3 Stories

Meet Eddie- celebrating exam results on tequila, lemon and a hand of salt.
One ecstasy tablet, a gram of coke and he collapsed- paramedics never found his pulse.
Mom was pulled back as she hugged her son, the surgeons were gathered like a rugby scrum.
Try’na look and figure out what kind of drugs he’d done but it was too late, he died before his stomach was pumped.
Mama never thought this’d happen to her son, he was too much of a responsible person.
Honourable livin’ never the one to be cursin’ put 100% into everything he was learnin’.
Friends getting blamed cuz they gave him the drugs, he would’ve never took it if he knew how fatal it was.
Mama sittin’ prayin’ to the angels above. Girl sittin’ prayin’ to the angels above.

Chorus
Send me an angel (I need an angel)
Send me an angel to watch over me

Meet Paul- last month he was made redundant. Still lookin’ for some other source of funding.
Kids need food and his wife was wonderin’ if he’s ever gonna get them back up out this dungeon.
He buckled under pressure it was hard to function- sittin’ in the car like his heart was punctured,
waitin’ for the fumes from the car to come in and then he died in the car from the fuel consumption.
You could hear her scream when she finally found him- standing there cryin’ with the children round him.
She found at least 4/5 pills around him and the bills that were layin’ there were still outstanding.
A suicide not read “Baby love, gotta go now. I simply couldn’t make enough.”
Mama sittin’ prayin’ to the angles above. Kids sittin’ prayin’ to the angels above.

Chorus

Meet Sue- a middle aged mother of 2. Every day she was puttin’ up with abuse.
Her hubbie’s in the pub he had a problem with booze-it’s when he got back that was when the troubles’d brew.
When she was beat she would try and cover the bruise, and she would wake up and clean the blood off his boots.
And she would never scream for the love of the youths and that was just so the kiddies wouldn’t suffer it too.
Things got far too hard to cope with, kids getting smart and they start to notice,
that Mama’s getting scarred by the person closest so Mama starts thinkin’ of a dangerous motive.
He returns from a day in the pub, she says that she’s had it and she’s taken enough,
Mama sent Daddy to the angels above, kids! Mama sent Daddy to the angels above!
