Men of the world, hear the drums in the distance.
There in the beat of the streets of the summers.
Going alone, it’s a suicide mission.
Could you be happy with anything else?

Oh don’t just tag along,
Start a war if you want to,
No, don’t just tag along, start a war if you want to.

Men of the world, see the city walls crumble.
Run for the cover of bunkers and basements,
Long empty hours, the fate of the capture,
Could you be happy with anything else?

No, don’t just tag along,
Start a war if you want to,
No, don’t just tag along, start a war if you want to.

No sirens call, and no bombs should fall,
We’ll lay down my arms, in false alarm.

No soldiers die, and no babies cry,
We’ll lay my head, and off to bed.

Oh don’t just tag along,
Start a war if you want to,
No, don’t just tag along, start a war if you want to.

    General CommentSecond line is "Blaring the beat from the streets of the suburbs"
    Maybe about the 9-5/suburban life?

    General CommentHere are the correct lyrics, typed by Duffy D. of Ladyhawk:

    WAR

    man of the world hear the drums in the distance

    blaring the beat from the streets of the suburbs

    go it alone it's a suicide mission

    could you be happy with anything else

    no don't just tag along, start a war if you want to

    no don't just tag along, start a war if you want to

    man of the world see the city walls crumble

    run for the cover of bunkers and basements

    long empty hours evading the capture

    could you be happy with anything else

    no don't just tag along, start a war if you want to

    no don't just tag along, start a war if you want to

    no sirens call and no bombs should fall

    i will lay down my arms and false alarms

    no soldiers die and no babies cry

    i will lay down my head and off to bed

    no don't just tag along, start a war if you want to

    no don't just tag along, start a war if you want to
