Raven


Raven

What can we make of this war for our village

Raven

explain all this plunder and pillage
It's all so frightfully clear
Since Raven's been wavin
war flags around here
So Raven stop wavin
war flags around here

Raven

You want to blast us into outer space
First let's feed house and clothe the human race
Cause, there's gore over here
death and more over there
We do not have another world to share or spare
It's all too painfully clear
Since Raven's been wavin
war flags around here
So Raven stop wavin
war flags around here


Raven

Don't go engravin dull colors of your framin
of our red, and the white over blue
It shames us to see
the dirty tricks that you do
It is all too patently clear
Since Raven's been wavin
war flags around here
So, Raven stop wavin
war flags around here

Raven

It blows as blood flows on our heads and our toes
heaven knows we're shedding much more than a tear
Since, Raven's been wavin
war flags around here.
So, Raven stop wavin
war flags around here

Raven

who are you savin
with points you've been shavin
the lives you are takin
the ground you have shaken
No haven is save from blind hatred we fear
Since Ravens been wavin
war flags around here
So Raven stop wavin
Bloody war flags around here

    It blows as blood flows on our heads and our toes
    heaven knows we're shedding much more than a tear ....i particularly 'liked' these lines, due in large part to the rhyming.

    a wild guess of the Raven's identity...........O'bama (and the powers-that-be in the u.s.a.?)

    i dislike that there are wars, big or small. but i think SOMETIMES the alternative MIGHT be worse.

    here is a take from me on the presidency.

    The 'Shoulders' Of Our Nation..... [U.S. President; Politics? ; Responsibility; SHORT]

    For what reason do we elect “The President” ……every four years?
    The election result brings smiles to some; to others it brings tears.

    Then, if popular opinion sides with “Him”, “He” gets the credit;
    BUT when things turn out poorly, “He” gets blamed; you can BET it!

    So I guess “He’s” our “Shoulder”, for us/”U.S.”, to pamper or to pound,
    saving us from having to spread the praise, OR the poison, all around.
