War Without Bangs

Geoff Pearson

There's a chemistry lesson of life
A chemistry leson of death
Where you're scared to touch your own wife
For the smell on her breath
There's rooms full of plague in a can
Held back by a vaccum seal
It'll kill any woman or man
Like the warrior's steel

Chorus

Looks very new to me, war without mutiny
War without soldiers, war without bangs
Looks very new to me, war without mutiny
War without soldiers, war without bangs

The slow hiss of nerve gas will come
As sure as a knock on the head
And why does the animal farm pretend to be dead
There's bottles with crossbones and skulls
In rows very tidy and clean
A war where no triggers are pulled, very tidy and clean

Chorus

Looks very new to me, war without mutiny
War without soldiers, war without bangs
Looks very new to me, war without mutiny
War without soldiers, war without bangs

The chemicals help you relax
It's a war that runs in the veins
Sometimes it burns out the brain
A new measure of pain
It's a molecule war of sorts
A chemistry lesson of death
Where the whole human race can abort
With a smell on its breath

Chorus

Looks very new to me, war without mutiny
War without soldiers, war without bangs
Looks very new to me, war without mutiny
War without soldiers, war without bangs
