The War Came Home Tonight

Roy Harper


Left right left right
The war came home tonight
Set alight by satellite
Drenched in tracer bullet bright

Left right left right
The newsmen stir their appetite
Camera zooming every goof
Shooting ratings bullet proof
Desperate to generate
A crisis to manipulate

You'll wonder where the country went
In the target rich environment

Left right left right
The corner of the room's alight
With images of pure uptight
To keep the voyeurs glued all night

You'll wonder...
Whose side dog is on
In the golden age of weapon

Wrong right wrong right
Death comes cruising through in spite
To give cold martyrs back their sight
As like as if this black was white

'Dark star' bombs will feed us
With bulletproof newsreaders
Read all about it - next
Turn to the tv - text

Left right left right
The war came home tonight
Set alight by satellite etc
