Armalitestreet lightsnight-sights
Searching the roofs for a sniperviperfighter
Death in the shadows he’ll maim youwound youhe’ll kill you
For long-forgotten causeon not so foreign shores
Boys baptised in wars

Morphinechill streambad dream
Serving as numbers on dogtagsflak-ragssandbags
Your girl has married your best friendlove’s endpoison pen
Your flesh will always creeptossing turning sleep
The wounds that burn so deep

Your mother sits on the edge of the world
When the cameras start to roll
Panoramic viewpoints resurrect the killing fold
Your father drains another beer he’s one of the few that cares
Crawling behind a saracen’s hull
From the safety of his living room chair
Forgotten sonsforgotten sonsforgotten sons

And so I patrol in the valley of the shadow of the tricolor
I must fear evil for I am but mortal and mortals can only die
Asking questionspleading answers from the nameless
Faceless watchers that stalk the carpeted corridors of whitehall
Who order desecrationmutilationverbal masturbation
In their guarded bureaucratic wombs

Ministerminister care for your childrenorder them not
Into damnation to eliminate those who would trespass
Against youfor whose is the kingdom?
The power and the gloryforever and ever

Halt who goes there?


Approach.... friend

You’re just another coffin on it’s way down the emerald aisle
Where the children’s stony glances mourn your death
In a terrorist’s smile
The bomber’s arm places fiery gifts on the supermarket shelves
Alleys sing with shrapneldance in a temporary hell

Forgotten sons

From the dole queue to the regiment a profession in a flash
But remember monday’s signings when from door to door you dash
On the news a nation mourns your unknown soldier count the cost
For a second you’ll be famous but labelled posthumous

Forgotten sons
Forgotten sons

Ring o’ rosesthey all fall down
Peace on earth and mercy mildmother brown has lost her child
Just another forgotten son
