Military Madness

from by Pale Mara



Written by Graham Nash


In an upstairs room in Blackpool
By the side of a northern sea
The army had my father
And my mother was having me

Military madness was killing my country
Solitary sadness comes over me

After school was over
And I moved to the other side
I found another country
But I never lost my pride

Military madness was killing my country
So much sadness between you and me

And when the war is over
And the body count is finally filed
I hope that man discovers
What’s driving the people wild

Military madness is killing my country
Solitary sadness comes over me
