Addictive pHilosopHy - Stop fighting, you'll ruin it for everyone... Addictive pHilosopHy



The Old Lie

The sound of silence deafens
What was once a family home
The husband’s dead and so’s the son
So she’s left all alone
The daughter’s got her own concerns
With wheels and a chair
They used to like romantic walks
But now his legs aren’t fucking there
There’s always Help For Heroes
Well that’s just super, man
Ain’t it just like in the movies
You’re just like Lieutenant Dan
Was that in the job description?
Was that what you signed up for?
Did it never cross your mind
That you might have to go to war?

Don’t tell me it’s for liberty
Don’t tell me it’s for freedom
Cos we’ve heard all the excuses
And we just don’t fuckin’ need ’em
You’re fighting off the terrorists
Who got their guns from you
Cos once upon a time
They did the things you told them to
But that’s not how we see it
In the papers and the news
Cos u gotta make it look nice
So impressionable people who know no better will go and die defending your views
Every generation
Has to hear the same old story
Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori
