lifeblood: songs: lyrics: war rugs


war rugs in the hallway
prayer rugs on the wall
who's walking tall
i should be kneeling

soldier girl oh soldier boy
tell me what to say
when i see you at christmas leave
tattooed in haste

oh we're all growing up together
we're all making a mark on it
we're all damning the consequences
i want to understand
the soul you have in there

young egypt seized the moment
and brought that bastard down
you got technology
you got archeology

we treated you like punters
until you kicked the goal
now we're claiming you for our team
'cause what do we know

oh we're all growing up together
we're all watching the video
we're all damning the consequences
i want to understand
the soul you have in there

soldier boy oh soldier girl
tell me what to say
when i see you at christmas leave

oh we're all growing up together
we're all taking it pass or fail
we're all damning the consequences
i want to understand
the soul it takes to stand
for something bigger than
myself
