Gerry cinnamon - War tv

There's a war on the TV
In a town called the world
And the suits turn their profit
While the mayhem unfurls
They're all quick to make war
But they won't send their sons
Shout the odds like a gangster
But they won't hold a gun

And I'm no' scared of dying
I'll fight any man
I might no' be the strongest
But I'll do what I can
And I'm no' that religious
But if God's got a plan
Then I don't think it's bombing
In a far away land

And there's no use pretending that you don't understand
With your arse in the air and your head in the sand
You don't need me tell you that's the way that it goes
Because deep down inside
Way deep down inside
You already know

(If you are not close to home when you hear the warning
Go to the nearest safe cover
Know where you are to go or ask an older person for help
You know the places marked with the "S" sign
Those are safe places to go when you hear the alarm)

I don't mean to offend
Or add fuel to the fire
We're all stood in silence
While the head count gets higher
There's divided opinion
Every corner you turn
Now Nero stands laughing
While the Empire burns


And there's no use pretending that you don't understand
With your arse in the air and your head in the sand
You don't need me tell you that's the way that it goes
Because deep down inside
Way deep down inside
You already know

(Paul and Patty would have covered this way, like this girl
Heavy doorways are a good place to duck and cover
She will be safer too
Here's Tony going to his cub scout meeting
Tony knows the bomb can go off any time of the year
Day or night)

There's a race to the finish
From the east to the west
'Cause we're all waking up now
Where there's some try their best
To divide us and conquer
Like chickens and cows
On the animal farm
As the sun's going down

And there's no use pretending that you don't understand
With your arse in the air and your head in the sand
You don't need me tell you that's the way that it goes
Because deep down inside
Way deep down inside

Way deep down inside
Way deep down inside (deep down inside)
You already know
