"The War Still Goes On"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Not much in humour stakes, but I really felt that I should write this.

“Go be a hero.”
With all this mindless crime?
Behind a curtain.
In this pantomime.
On and on.
Does anybody know what we are fighting for?
Whatever truth is,
it doesn’t stand a chance.
While all the glass breaks.
Each diplomatic dance.
On and on.
Does anybody know what we are dieing for?

The war still goes on.
The war still goes on.

Outside the sun rising
on the sands that hold P.O.T.U.S.’ destiny.
The war still goes on.
The war still goes on.


All chaos is out-breaking.
My grip on power’s shaking.
But the death still goes on.

I’ll pass the bill
to aid the kill,


though no one has the will to carry…
on with the…
on with the …
on with the show.

Dark stuff, ISTA...but very well written, and thought-provoking. 555

Doesn't always have to be haha... Serious social satire is a time-honored tradition (that isn't "dying"). 555

DKTOS, but outstanding. No vote because I don't know the original song, but the Capital Steps should record this. I hate King George, and I'm voting for Obama unless Stephen Colbert runs, then I'll vote for him.

No, you're not right, you're left, which is correct. Here's five days' worth of R & R.
