GUNS N ROSES lyrics : "Civil War"

"What we've got here is failure to
communicate.
Some men you just can't reach...

So, you get what we had here last week,
which is the way he wants it!
Well, he gets it!

N' I don't like it any more than you men." *

Look at your young men fighting

Look at your women crying
Look at your young men dying
The way they've always done before


Look at the hate we're breeding
Look at the fear we're feeding

Look at the lives we're leading
The way we've always done before


My hands are tied
The billions shift from side to side
And the wars go on with brainwashed pride

For the love of God and our human rights
And all these things are swept aside
By bloody hands time can't deny

And are washed away by your genocide
And history hides the lies of our civil wars


D'you wear a black armband
When they shot the man
Who said "Peace could last forever"

And in my first memories
They shot Kennedy
I went numb when I learned to see

So I never fell for Vietnam
We got the wall of D.C. to remind us all
That you can't trust freedom

When it's not in your hands
When everybody's fightin'
For their promised land


And
I don't need your civil war

It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
In a human grocery store

Ain't that fresh
I don't need your civil war


Look at the shoes your filling
Look at the blood we're spilling
Look at the world we're killing

The way we've always done before
Look in the doubt we've wallowed
Look at the leaders we've followed

Look at the lies we've swallowed
And I don't want to hear no more


My hands are tied
For all I've seen has changed my mind
But still the wars go on as the years go by

With no love of God or human rights
'Cause all these dreams are swept aside
By bloody hands of the hypnotized

Who carry the cross of homicide
And history bears the scars of our civil wars


"WE PRACTICE SELECTIVE ANNIHILATION OF MAYORS AND GOVERNMENT
OFFICIALS
FOR EXAMPLE TO CREATE A VACUUM

THEN WE FILL THAT VACUUM
AS POPULAR WAR ADVANCES
PEACE IS CLOSER" **


I don't need your civil war
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor

Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh
And I don't need your civil war
I don't need your civil war

I don't need your civil war
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh
I don't need your civil war

I don't need one more war

I don't need one more war
Whaz so civil 'bout war anyway


So who needs me?
I need me, the civil war is raging.
Peoples houses are blazing.

"And the pipline is still gushing!!"
