Hawkwind - The War I Survived lyrics | LyricsFreak
Death comes like a glacier from the peaks of all wars
Reason and logic, the generals cry "more"
Bodies in gullies, contortionist poses
Fogged by the scent of mustard gas and roses

Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five
Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five

Nice business guns, bombs to the haloed Moon
Trust this landscape to the barren gloom
A bulletproof Bible can protect your heart
It'll cover your eyes when you're falling apart

Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five
Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five

Mischief rides high upon the martyr's back
Provide the credence for unprovoked attack
Yet in their use can these shadows have form
Armies create circles, sparks from the dawn

Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five
Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five

And so it goes, no one is left alive
Take me back to the war I survived
These were people like you and I
Take me back to the war I survived

The War I Survived Lyrics

Hawkwind – The War I Survived Lyrics

Death comes like a glacier from the peaks of all wars
Reason and logic, the generals cry "more"
Bodies in gullies, contortionist poses
Fogged by the scent of mustard gas and roses

Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five
Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five

Nice business guns, bombs to the haloed Moon
Trust this landscape to the barren gloom
A bulletproof Bible can protect your heart
It'll cover your eyes when you're falling apart

Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five
Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five

Mischief rides high upon the martyr's back
Provide the credence for unprovoked attack
Yet in their use can these shadows have form
Armies create circles, sparks from the dawn

Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five
Take me back to the war I survived
I can't live no more, this is slaughterhouse five

And so it goes, no one is left alive
Take me back to the war I survived
These were people like you and I
Take me back to the war I survived
