More To War Than Just War

There’s more to war than just war
It leaves less on the earth than before
Fathers, brothers and sisters who will not be home
Daughters and sons, now just names on a stone
Where’s that home? Where’s that school?
Where’s that child? (Point accusing fingers at crowd)
What was treasured is spoiled and defiled
There’s music unsung,
Books and libraries gone
Yes, there’s more to war than just war!
2) There’s more to war than just war
It leaves more on the earth than before
Scorched fields and orchards that will not bear fruit
Rubble-strewn lanes, debris, ashes and soot
Refugees, unmarked graves, makeshift camps
Sleepless nights, fearful days, shattered plans
Minds that are broken
Hate that is spoken
Yes, there’s more to war than just war!
3) There’s more to war than just war
There’s interests and politics, galore
Supernice targets to blast with war toys
Exciting games for the military boys
Propaganda and hypocrisy
Battle specials just right for tv
Profits will soar
As the armies need more
Yes, there’s more to war than just war!
