John Lennon - God

WEDNESDAY CLUB

SEND ME A SIGN

 
JOHN LENNON - God

My new Christmas song!

BLASPHEMY  (send me a sign)

Is there a God?
send me a sign
can you stop my pain?
can you stop my sorrow?
send me a sign

Is there a God?
Is it all a joke?
can you make it better?
can you give me hope?
send me a sign

Is there a God?
send me a sign
tell me you will help
tell me you're out there?
send me a sign

Is there a God?
I think not
you let it all happen
you watch all the pain
the murder
the killing
the rape
the genocide
the war
the drugs
all the shit going down
there is no sign
or you don't care

Is there a God?
I think not

Elvis Costello - Oliver's Armys

WEDNESDAY CLUB

IF YOU FAIL




ELVIS COSTELLO - Oliver's Army

Don't get me wrong, I respect and are proud of all the armed forces. They are brave people, braver than me and I thank them all, especially those heroes lost protecting us.
You may find this a tad cynical, but I am cynical about war.

BODY BAG (salute to the flag)

well done leader man
you got your war
time for the payback
to those who put you there
get all the soldier boys
comrades in arms
fight for their country
proud of their flag

take that hand from your heart
your names on a body bag
one bullet one dollar
you do the maths
whose got the contract

proud for you son
like dad before
born to the army
we know what it takes
if you don't come home
we fill with pride
you took their bullet
standing there tall

take that hand from your heart
your names on the honor wall

one bullet one dollar
you do the maths
whose got the contract?

we kill the bad guys
Gods on our side
we kill the bad guys
Gods on our side

stand tall
for the leader man
salute to the flag
your names on a body bag
your names on the honor wall
