"War" as written by and Norman J./strong Whitfield....
It doesn't take too long to grow old,
right from the day that your sorry soul was sold.
Your name was there from nought years old,
on the dotted line.

You're lucky if you realise,
you're trapped and institutionalised.
It's not just you they victimise,
it's happened through our time.

This planet is at war.
This planet is at war.
Forget about your perks and your insane works,
this planet is at war.
This planet is at war.
This planet is at war.
Your little luxuries will have you on your knees,
this planet is at war.

The I.M.F. and the World bank
think that your sorry life isn't worth a wank,
but really they have you to thank,
for voting in their drones.

They have the Third World wrapped in chains,
these neo-liberal super-brains.
With warheads, tanks and bomber planes,
their answer should you moan.

This planet is at war.
This planet is at war.
Forget about your perks and your insane works,
this planet is at war.
This planet is at war.
This planet is at war.
Your little luxuries will have you on your knees,
this planet is at war.

This is a dark hierarchy,
that leads victim dependency.
Thrives on all that apathy
for money racing up.

And if you find this world deranged,
and if you want to make it change,
There is a thousand people who feel the same.
Question is how

Direct action is a real voice.
Free or in prison all to rejoice
Revolution seems the only sane choice,
things as they are now.

And on the environmental front line,
Get to fight back come rain or shine.
Fight to protect yours, theirs and mine
Planet is at war.

This planet is at war.
This planet is at war.
Forget about your perks and your insane works,
this planet is at war.
This planet is at war.
This planet is at war.
Your little luxuries will have you on your knees,
this planet is at war.
