Skyclad - Still Spinning Shrapnel lyrics

(All I hear are peace talks and battle cries)

Everyone's losing, nobody's winning
So run for your lives when shrapnel's spinning

Pictures of the crippled
Wounded on the frontline
Someone else's problem
You're sitting on a landmine
When will we see reason?
Sometimes I think we'll never
Learn that children have the right to laugh
And dying is forever

All I hear are peace talks and battle cries

No time for laughter, we're too busy dying
In this Devil's playground where bullets are flying

There's another star in heaven
And footprints on the moon
So ignore the reign of terror
The bloody red monsoon.
Neighbour fighting neighbour
Oh, see how quick they run
To tear down the white flag
And pick up the gun

Peace talks and battle cries
Apathy can kill
Put a price on human life
Pay the butcher's bill
Everybody's losing, nobody's winning
Run for your lives when the shrapnel's spinning

Hear my prayer from the Valley of the Shadow
For a child in an unmarked grave
Take my hand in the hour of darkness
While there's someone left to save
Hear my prayer from the Valley of the Shadow
For a child in an unmarked grave
Take my hand in the hour of darkness
But you can't hear me, all you can hear are...

...peace talks and battle cries
Apathy can kill
Put a price on human life
Pay the butcher's bill
No time for laughter, we're too busy dying
In this Devil's playground where bullets are flying

I think about the children
Who have no hopes or homes
Born into a battlefield
War's all they've ever known
Neighbour loving neighbour
Will that day ever come?
When we shake hands in friendship`
And survey the damage done

All I hear are peace talks and battle cries

Everyone's losing, nobody's winning
So run for your lives when shrapnel's spinning

Hear my prayer from the Valley of the Shadow
For a child in an unmarked grave
Take my hand in the hour of darkness
While there's someone left to save

Why won't you help me?
Why can't you hear me?
