World War II (Pt.2)
Videos by American Songwriter
Headache! Heartbreak! Rattlesnake, rattle!
It all sounds inane when you shout at the top of your lungs!
We were young! Our tongues were like eels,
Sticking out of our mouths at people!
Handshake! Earthquake! Mind over matter!
Don’t be so amazed when towers come tumbling down
To the ground! What sounds you will hear
As the mountains, the valleys, the oceans, they all disappear.
Bombs from above will kill you if you catch one of them.
This is a call to arms for arms withdrawal.
Air raid! Blitzkrieg! Battleship, battle!
The television is the stage for the family home theatre of war!
Of course, the apocalypse is here!
It’s an eye for an eye, an ear for a souvenir!
