"Soft Power" as written by Daniel Hunt and Reuben Hoong Bun Wu....
Broken glass is luxury;
Friendly fires are alchemy;
Daylight is the enemy;
Witching hour, soft power

We're not sleeping at the wheel.
The wheel is turning the machine
That kills for us.

Close your eyes, so you're not seen
In Valentine's daydream.

We're not sleeping at the wheel
The wheel is turning the machine
That kills for us.

The hourglass of the forests
Setting fire to the tourists

We're not sleeping at the wheel
The wheel is turning the machine
That kills for us.

Broken glass is luxury;
Friendly fires are alchemy;
Daylight is the enemy;
Witching hour, soft power.

    General CommentFirst year Poli Sci taught me that "soft power" was a term coined by... someone... to describe the importance of winning over the hearts and minds of your people as a means of getting them on your side, rather than using military force to do so. Something along those lines. Soooo, perhaps the fisrt and second verses are the masters of war telling their people, "Look, this is not war -- it is pretty and magical and also none of our doing."

    General CommentYou might have to rehearse the Poli Sci :)

    Soft power refers to the use of diplomacy, sanctions, etc in international relations, as opposed to the use of military power.
