The Whore Of Peace And War

The Whore Of Peace And War

The military has to feed its’ self
And justify its’ being each day
How can it continue to collect your wealth
When all are at peace and in love pray

An army without an enemy
Will soon turn upon its’ self or you
And upon all and your family
Turn and make an enemy of God too

An enemy that you can not see
The unknown terrorist of the moment
Will feed the wheels of the military
No battle lines in a world of torment

Send your sons to fight in foreign lands
To save them from dieing at your hands

The military now has only one true enemy
Their eternal ceaseless foe
Those who preach love and brotherhoods purity
Anyone who speaks out against all the bloody woe

No soldier at peace can ever fight
An enemy that is not there
So their created terrorist takes to flight
And his creators now fight him everywhere

The military can only bring peace through war
And remain vigilant to fight another one
Not seeing themselves the Beast and Whore
And all soon come under the rule of the gun

No peace will come from a bloody war
When it is only the military they are fighting for.

Artist's Description

In a world where one nation spends one and a half times what the entire rest of the world does on defence, war seems predestined.
