"Out In The Fields" as written by and Gary Moore....
It doesn't matter
if you're wrong or if you're right.
It makes no difference
if you're black or if you're white.
All men are equal
till the victory is won.
No colour or religion
ever stopped the bullet from a gun.
Out in the fields,
the fighting has begun.
Out on the streets,
they're falling one by one.
Out from the skies,
a thousand more will die each day.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
It doesn't matter
if you're left or to the right.
Don't try to hide behind the cause
for what you fight.
There'll be no prisoners taken
when the day is done.
No flag or uniform
ever stopped the bullet from a gun.
Out in the fields,
the fighting has begun.
Out on the streets,
they're falling one by one.
Out from the skies,
a thousand more will die each day.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
There's no communication,
no one to take the blame.
The cries of every nation
have fallen on deaf ears again.
Out in the fields.
Out in the fields.
They are falling one by one.
Out in the fields.
No flag has ever stopped
the bullet from a gun.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields,
a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields,
a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
In the fields,
the fighting has begun.
Out on the streets,
they're falling one by one.
Out from the skies,
a thousand more will die each day.
OUT!

    General CommentNo comments!?!?!?!?!?
    This is a great song. Baisically saying that in war everyone is equal. Nobody has a better chance of not being killed. Therefore it is a message of peace "The cries of every nation; they're falling on deaf ears again." Solo also kicks ass

    General CommentThis song is about Northern Ireland and the Troubles. It's also about how so many wars/conflicts have to do with religion and race, and how stupid it all is.
