View Full Version : Two Anti-War Songs I've written (Explicit)

September 10th, 2008, 6:53 PM
I've written a few songs, but I've always recieved comments on how these two are the best.

Tell me what you think and please don't copy off me...
NOTE: These songs can be very dark so if you are offended by explicit lyrics, you may not wanna read this.

“Pawns of War”

Gather forces from the street
Talk them all out of defeat
Regular people with no life
Forced to leave their kids and wife

Taking sons from weeping moms
Your Little Johnny’s now a bomb
Unprepared for incoming shots
They’re sent back home in a box

The army we send out the door
They are only pawns of war
We spare the rich, but rape the poor
That’s what disposable men are for

Firing at the unknown force
Generals showing no remorse
Venturing out can be such a dare
Safety ain’t found anywhere

Machine gun fire is all I hear
Whether it be far or near
Death by gun or bomb or knife
Anything it takes to steal your life

[guitar solo]

Bullets are no longer rare
Bombs are falling through the air
Tanks are rumbling in the street
Bodies are falling at my feet

Soldier don’t you say a word
We’re moving you across the board
Soldier boy say your goodbye’s
The time has come for you to die

[guitar solo to the end of the song]

“Letter from No Man’s Land”

[starts out soft and slow]

[echoes] Mother........

It’s not a secret anymore
I have rotten to the core
No one knows, what life has stored
What the hell is this war for?

Insanity traps me from inside
War’s done nothing, but kill my pride
Where I sleep, is a crimson tide
It makes me want to run and hide

[mini solo; still quiet]

The stench of death looms in the air
This insanity’s more than I can bare
My life now, none shall spare
Does anyone out there even care?

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord, my soul to keep
If I shall die before I wake
I pray the Lord, my soul to take

[mini solo leading to the bridge]

[bridge; dynamics get louder]

Death happens all around me
It does nothing, but feed my inner insanity
I no longer want to fight
This just doesn’t seem all right
I might fall in the abyss
I just can’t take much more of this
This all makes me want to yell
Damn it all, damn it all straight to hell!

...mother please...I wanna go home...help me...


[loudest point in this song]

I just gotta flee this hell
Peace, no longer can it sell
Please, dear God, please hear my cry
Take me with you, to the sky!

Mother, I love you, I hope you know
Love you, more than I could show
I write this letter shedding tears
I really wish that you were here!

Mother I am freaking out
I finally regain my right to shout
This war itself has gone amok
Yet no one seems to give a...

[song ends abruptly as an explosion sounds followed by gunfire and war sound effects]

^ lol beatsprite.

What genre does this song fall under?
There's something about song that makes everything work.

There are some grammatical and spelling errors, but that's not really that important.

I might post a full review sometime.
