The Drums of War

The Drums of War

What are those drums beating for?
Those, my son, are the Drums of War.
What are those people marching for?
They’re marching to the Drums of War.

For the Drums are beating once again,
taking away our children.
When the Drums are calling you must fall in,
You’ve got to march when the Drums are calling.

We’ll watch our children march away,
How can we face them, what can we say?
How can we look them in the eye
When everything we’ve said has been a lie?

We’re sending them away to die.
The Cause is bigger than you or I.
The Bible says “an eye for an eye”.
Follow the Drum and don’t ask why.
Follow the Drum and don’t ask why.
