Gale Mead: Music

The War Goes On

(Gale Mead)
August, 2008
Gale Mead
They say we're lucky we live in a country
Where we're free to march in the streets
But you just might get arrested
If they don't like the slogan on your t-shirt

My letters to the editor and the Senators
Fall upon deaf ears
I'm free to speak but no one's listening
And the war goes on
And the War goes on...

They said "trust us, we know what we're doing"
Go shopping, go to Disney, go to sleep
How quickly we forgot what we were so afraid of losing
How quickly we forgot what it means to be free

My letters to the editor and the Senators
Fall upon deaf ears
I'm free to speak but no one's listening
And the war goes on
And the War goes on...
