The Lyrics

One of the more publicized aspects of the anti-war movement has been several people rushing to Iraq to offer themselves as "human shields". However, some British would- be human shields have returned home, after realizing that it could actually be dangerous. Ridiculous? We think so.
(As sung by would-be human shields)

Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled
What was in our head?
Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled
What was in our head?
They just think we're nuts

We're forced to just quit, and it is because
We don't wanna get hurt, there's danger involved
Being in here has opened my eyes
We don't wanna get bombed, now we're saying goodbye

I keep asking myself, wondering how
How I got in this mess, what was it all about
Wanted us in this place where they'd just bomb poor me
Wanted us there, now we all just flee

Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled
What was in our head?
Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled
What was in our head?
They just think we're nuts
They just think we're nuts

Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled

Plans are screwed up, feeling sorry and crushed
Iraq wanted us where we could all be bombed
Those "strategic sites", like an army base
That's not my kind of place, we just go home in shame

No it ain't just fair, why was it me
We all wanted to stay, but we just had to flee
They wanted to defend, and we would face threats
We're guarded everywhere, even just to the head

Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled
What was in our head?
Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled
What was in our head?
They just think we're nuts
They just think we're nuts

Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled

Public looking at me
Tell me, what do you see?
Yes, we've lost our minds

Pundit looking at me
Why did we all just flee?
Did we cross the line?

Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled
What was in our head?
Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled
What was in our head?
They just think we're nuts
They just think we're nuts

Human shields have fled
Human shields have fled
