  It's So Wrong - Lyrics (1991)

  We are marching
  We are marching
    We are marching to war

It's so wrong
It's so wrong
It's so wrong,
   The way we carry on

I see the burned and charcoaled bodies
On the nightly news
And with our missiles so precise
We are nothing short of dead

We are tokens of the state
And we are captured
The moment we are born

It's so wrong
It's so wrong
It's so wrong
The way we carry on

There's no trigger on our hearts
But there's a weapon to open up our minds

It's the mind
It's the mind
It's the mind
That's in our way

It's the mind
It's the mind
It's the mind
We have to drop

I hear excuses
I hear regrets
But I still hear screams in the night

It's so wrong
It's so wrong
It's so wrong
The way we carry on

We are marching
We are marching
We are marching off to war

There's no living
 There's no loving
And there's no peace in our lives

We are tokens of the state
We are captured the moment we are born

Yes, its so wrong
It's so wrong
It's so wrong
The way we carry on

  John David - Lyrics (1969)

John David he died for you
He's a comin' home
John David went to war for you
But he was meant to roam

Is it true what they're sayin' now
In the streets back home
Is it true what they're sayin' now
Has the time really come
Yes, he's on his way

John David he cried for you
Never feelin' his pain
John David he was lied to
He knew he died in vain

Can ya tell me there's a reason why
He was filled with fears
Can ya give me a reason why
That's worth all of our tears
Yes, he's on his way

His family's standin' on the train platform
With their heads hung down
They couldn't watch as they lowered that box
In which they brought Johnny home

John David was a son of yours
He was a friend of mine
John didn't have the heart to kill
He was friendly and kind

Is it true what they're sayin' now
In the streets back home
Is it true what they're sayin' now
Has the time really come
Yes, he's on his way
