East and west, could not agree.
So their generals have a call
And gathered troops at the border.
With guns ready, drawn and aimed.
Each side was praying to a god to bless them
With strength and courage
It was in his name that artillery lit the sky on fire.
The people sang protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun.

Protest songs, in response to military aggression.
Protest songs, to try and stop the soldier's gun.
But the battle raged on

Sirens filled the air and the ground shook with war.
Civilian casualties has been a cost that was predetermined.

When interviewed for report, victims pleaded in frustration.
Their claim: That this was a war without reason.

Bureaucrats enraged in debate to try and reach a resolution
The people sang protest songs to try and stop the soldier's gun.

Protest songs, in response to military aggression.
Protest songs, to try and stop the soldier's gun.
Protest songs, in response to military aggression.
Protest songs, to try and stop the soldier's gun.
And the battle raged on

The broadcast, like their prayers,
Went unanswered and ignored.
God, like the rest of the world,
Just watched in silence.
There was purpose to be served,
There were fortunes to be earned
Before a peace could be called to stop a war.

Protest songs, in response to military aggression.
Protest songs, to try and stop the soldier's gun.
Protest songs, in response to military aggression.
Protest songs, to try and stop the soldier's gun.
Protest songs, in response to military aggression.
Protest songs, to try and stop the soldier's gun.
Protest songs, in a response to military aggression.
Protest songs, to try and stop the soldier's gun.
But the battle raged on.
