Track rating :  80 / 100       Votes :  1       [ ]
An everlasting state of conflict, forgotten and remote,
Disregarded and concealed
There is slaughter and bloodshed every day,
Hunger, pain and forced migration
So far away from your safe homes
A world engulfed in violence
None of your fathers, none of your brothers,
Sons and daughters lost in action
Self-sacrifice, a privilege just granted to the poor

The cruelties you know are black and white,
So distant in time and space
Manipulated and sedated by military vapouring
About surgical precision and righteous interventions
Now they promise "no feet on the ground"

But you're just bored with peace
These wars are televised, edited and defanged
Blindness

No screams of anguish resound,
No air raid sirens sounding through the night
You just consume the horror, entertaining and amusive,
You're not at war
Your land of bliss lies in an oppressed world of misery
There has never been esteem for simple human harmony

And you're just bored with peace
These wars are long-yearned-for,
They need these states to burn
Believe me, you do not know,
What war means, what war does to your families

Feelings of supremacy, reckless and inconsiderate
Contracted patriots heady with victory
And lacking ordinary empathy
An everlasting state of conflict, forgotten and remote,

Disregarded and concealed
And you're just bored with peace, an abysmal tragedy
