Lyrics

What Are We Fighting For?
(Galloway)

We're down at the local, friends having a drink
But the talks break down, we started dancing
No time to stop and think
What the suits at the top are saying
What are they planning for us?
We got no future
We lost control
It's like we've given up

All I ever see is glorified fools
Who'll lie and deny and try to be cool
To win votes not love
Pretend the're whiter than white
You earn too much
I hope you can't sleep at night
While our boys at war with blood on their hands
And their wives at home who can't understand
What's going on ... It's not even our war
When our people don't know what we're fighting for!!!

And I'm sick of hearing
That we wont stand for this
But election day comes and nobody is voting
So things stay the same

All I ever see is glorified fools
Who'll lie and deny and try to be cool
To win votes not love
Pretend the're whiter than white
You earn too much
I hope you can't sleep at night
While our boys at war with blood on their hands
And their wives at home who can't understand
What's going on ... It's not even our war
When our people don't know what we're fighting for!!!

We can't go on like this no
We can't go
We cant' go
We can't go on like this no
We can't go
We cant' go

All I ever see is glorified fools
Who'll lie and deny and try to be cool
To win votes not love
Pretend the're whiter than white
You earn too much
I hope you can't sleep at night
While our boys at war with blood on their hands
And their wives at home who can't understand
What's going on ... It's not even our war
When our people don't know what we're fighting for!!!
