If You Call a Gun an Instrument
If you call a gun an instrument,
then war must be a song –
we fight and sing with everything
we get both our hands on.
But if war is nothing but a song
the maestro is the key –
we have some skill, but it’s his will
that governs you and me.
And if we are nothing more
than players playing out his song,
then fuck this band, give me your hand –
let’s show him that he’s wrong.
