Lyrics

More Helicopters

Written By: Mark Badger

Had me sign a dotted line
sent me out there doing time
trained me hard, worked my mind
we broke their hearts and blew their minds

how many people die
for a worthless cause
how many people die
i dont wanna die
in some desert war
i dont want to die

think of all of them back home
we're out here fighting on our own
spend their time in politics
send us fighting into shit

how many people
for some stupid war
how amny people die
i dont want to die
in your fucking war
i dont want to die

now i'm coming home, now i'm coming home, i dont want to die, i dont want to die
too many mistakes were made, to the sound of a rotarblade, i dont want to die, i dont want to die
back from this living hell, to the land of the infidel, i dont want to die, i dont want to die
back from this living hell, to the land of infidel, i dont want to die, i dont want to die

and so i lie here waiting, time waits for no man here, they let us go in our own way

and so the money goes in, they fly the wounded back, how many people left behind?

OK Bye

Written By: Mark Badger

You keep us afraid
of what they might do
2 million walked the streets but still you went ahead
you sit in your chair
and think youre bullet proof
a stroke of your pen will send them to their death

youre just a chair man
protected by law
you offer justice
no one can afford
you watch on tv behind your walls
now we've come for you
come to stop your war

ok bye, ok bye, ok bye ........etc (re do all these in your own style or your asian call centre woice.... but try and vary each one a little bit)

They Call You Chairman
the "madman"
how long can you ignore millions at your door
your "guns" on our streets
ordered to fire at .....
now we've come for you
we've come to stop your war.......

ok bye, ok bye, ok bye

Gone

Written By: Mark Badger

Today could be a good day
Today could be our last day
You never know your time to die
My days are spent far underground
Away from infra red and gunsights
They'll never find us here

Ill put them back
Ill put them back into the ground

The tress keep me invisible
No human eye will ever find me
I wont come quietly
There are no devils in these hearts
But their actions cannot pass me
I'll take them one by one

Ill put them back
I'll put them back into the ground

Ill put them back

Beautane

Written By: Mark Badger

One Last prayer to the god of despair
(no going home, theres nowhere to go)
one more drop for the firing squad
(youre up to the wall, up to the wall)
the shot will stop you dead on the spot

all i hear, the railway lines, how many years will it take

nothing but the long slow drop
(no turning back, its all going black)
how deep will you go, into the hole
(into the hole,youre into the hole)
huddled masses, cold in the dark

all i see, the black and white, flickering screen of despair

the sun burns down, on a desert world
nothing but concrete and waste
i see it all, i see it all, through a can of butane

money buys, all you dont need,
a stab in the back for your greed
i see it all, i see it all, all time stands still

I'm beautiful, so beautiful, through a can of beau-tane etc etc
