"Stalemate" as written by Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow, Robert Rolfe and Roughton Reynolds....
Previous wars make billionaires out of millionaires,
Todays wars make trilionaires out of billionaires
Tomorrows wars will fuel generations of hate, generations of hate
I'm losing my grip on reality
I can not simply agree that we are civilized
Acting like this earth is infinite, it's a chessboard of lies
That will generate, stalemate.
It will generate stalemate

So yes I've, gone to the hills again
So yes I've, gone away

Money is made when bombs are dropping in Afghanistan
And when phosphorous falls in Palestine.
Hauling weapons out of reprobates.
Harming anyone who wants a taste, of disgrace.
Who wants a taste, of disgrace.

So yes I've, gone to the hills again.
So yes I've, gone away.
So yes I've, gone away.

Hey!

    General Comment"Money is made while bombs are dropping in Afghanistan
    *when* white phosphorous falls in Palestine
    Whoring weapons out at record pace,
    Arming anyone who wants a taste of disgrace"

    Incredible section of the song. Beautifully poignant lyrics.

    Song MeaningSong is about wars in middle east

    “So yes I’ve gone to the hills again,
    So yes I’ve gone away,”

    And i guess this part of lyrics referance to prophet Muhammad because he was going to hills for pray and think

    General CommentJust a couple mistakes:
    "made billionaires out of millionaires" is "made millionaires out of billionaires"
    "Hauling weapons out" - "Whoring weapons out"
