The Eve Of The Revolution
I don`t think I can take much more of this,
It`s my other life I continually miss,
For then at least I was far from insane,
And I don`t think I can ever have that again.
It`s the little things that bother me most,
And I suppose then again I occasionally boast,
But the pros and the cons just aren`t the same,
One day I think I`ll get on that plane.
Yet what changed me most was what happened last night,
It started small, a minor pub fight,
But they took it too far, as they always will,
We`re supposed to be soldiers, “trained to kill”,
They shouted and charged me and took me to Hell,
But just watch me you “people”, I`ll take them as well!
They think they can do what they damn well like,
Not this time my friends, I`ll give them a fight,
Okay, so I signed on the dotted line,
But listen you folks, my life`s still mine!
And when they say “Jump”, I wont say “How high?”,
You`ve had it from me, I`m saying goodbye.
Don`t tell me I can`t, I don`t want to hear,
You pushed it this far, and now I am here,
“Be strong”, you say, “You`re no longer boys”,
Then you run us around like clockwork toys.
You take our money for so called food,
Don`t ask my opinion, I don`t want to be rude,
“Eat” you say, “As much as you like”,
How can we eat when it tastes like tripe?
And the officers are the real fools,
It`s them who break their very own rules,
One set for them, another for us,
How are we ever supposed to have trust?
So this is it boys, the revolution`s here
Stand up and fight – they said do not fear.
We`ll give them the fight they taught us to give,
And those who survive are those who should live!
