Iraq

 

Remember the days of the old school yard
Said the Cat before going too far
But has the door been left slightly ajar?
Has the door been left slightly ajar?

Even Dylan went to god
Before returning to days of old
But you know, protest is never just a song
Protest can never be just a song

A whole generation of bleeding hearts
A brotherhood from Central to Gorky Park
But a war can never end before it starts
A war can never end before it starts

So shed your tears and pour your blood
You are never going to see another flood
And this ark will always be stuck in the mud
This ark will always be stuck in the mud

Gone are the days of the old school yard
The Cat’s new name is more sinister
But a bleeding heart will never get too far
A bleeding heart will never get very far
