Bob MouldThe War

And all these songs I write for you They tear me up, it's not hard to do Listen to my voice It's the only weapon I kept from the war And I can soothe every ailment you endure And I can see into the future most assured I don't have a choice It's the only life I know after the war Everything we made, reduced to dust You were the one who taught me most I carry your remains Your emblem and your name Nothing left will ever be the same And this war we fought was violent and long Weeks turned into years but we keep on keeping on The ringing in my brain Is what remains This war has worn me down Broken dreams and a hole in the ground Don't give up And don't give in © 2019
