Above is an audio clip of a new song I just came across. I sang it into the phone which explains the quality of the recording. At least you can get the idea.
The words and the music are at
How true are these words?
If the war goes on and the children die of hunger,
and the old men weep, for the young men are no more,
and the women learn how to dance with out a partner,
who will keep the score?
If the war goes on and the truth is taken hostage,
and new terrors lead to the need to euphemize;
when the calls for peace are declared unpatriotic,
who'll expose the lies.
If the war goes on and the daily bread is terror,
and the voiceless poor take the road as refugees;
when a nation's pride destines millions to be homeless,
who will heed their pleas?
If the war goes on and the rich increase their fortunes,
and the arms sales soar as new weapons are displayed;
when a fertile field turns to no man's land tomorrow,
who'll approve such trade.
If the war goes on, will we close the doors to heaven?
If the war goes on, will we breach the gates of hell?
If the war goes on, will we ever be forgiven?
If the war goes on...
