    War

    In a foreign town
    In a foreign land
    Reaping time had come
    In fields of swaying rape
    It could not happen here
    Pushed to one side with the flick of a wrist
    Out of sight
    And out of mind
    Fallng back in fields of rape
    In yellow heads of blossom
    Mothers babies bleeding
    You stand there laughing
    Unquestioning unconfronting
    Poetic lines on the art of dying
    Falling back in fields of rape
    That was the way
    Those were the horrors
    As daddy went a-reaping
    In nodding heads of rape
    No mark on your spotless conscience
    No blemish on your immaculate body
    Untouched by sight or sound of misery
    Close the eyes
    Shift the responsibility
    It was not you
    It was not you
    Falling back in fields of rape
    My children
    Falling back in fields of rape
    It could not happen here
    Pushed to one side with a flick of the wrist
    Out of sight
    And out of mind
    Falling back in fields of rape
    Poetic lines on the art of dying
    Falling back in fields of rape
    That was the way
    And those were the horrors
    As daddy went a-reaping
    In nodding heads of rape
    No mark on your spotless conscience
    No blemish on your immaculate body
    Untouched by sight or sound of misery
    Close the eyes
    Shift the responsibility
    It wasn't you
    Falling back in fields of rape
    My children
    Falling back in fields of rape

    Here we go round the mulberry bush
    The mulberry bush
    The mulberry bush
    Here we go round the mulberry bush
    On a cold and frosty morning

    In a foreign town
    In a foreign land
    Reaping time had come
    Falling back in fields of rape
    My love
    And that was the way
    And those were the horrors
    As daddy went a-reaping
    Falling back in fields of rape
    My children
    Crushed, crushed, crushed
    In mud and wars
    Mother children bleeding
    You stand there laughing
    Falling back in fields of rape

    Never eating
    Bags of bones dying quietly
    Homeless
    Drinking foul water
    Sorting garbage
    With flies in heat
    Raped
    Axed
    Burned with acid
    Locked away for thirty years
    Thrown out of a helicopter
    Forced to labour endlessly
    Castrated
    Burned alive
    Killed so easily by firing squads

    In a foreign town
    In a foreign land
    Reaping time has come
    They're falling back
    In fields of rape
    In fields of rape
    They're falling back
    In fields of rape
    My love
    And this is our way
    And these are the horrors
    As we go a-reaping
    They're falling back
    In fields of rape
    In fields of rape
    They're falling back
    In fields of rape
    My darling
    And crushed, crushed, crushed
    In mud and wars
    Still you stand there laughing
    They're falling back in fields of rape
    In fields of rape they're falling back
    My lovers

    In fields of rape the ravens
    Descend. the yellow beak slashes
    Corn, the sickles are sharpened
    And the cattle bleed, and reaping
    Time has come, our voices grow
    Shriller, and our eyes glitter, but
    In this last summer the Rapture
    Descends, and father's mask has
    Turned to grey, and mother's
    Breasts are leper white, and
    Children's laughter cracks, and
    Reaping time has come, body and
    Blood, body and blood, body and
    Blood, body and mud, body and
    Blood, body and mud, and
    Christ's eyes, I am weary, and
    Christ's eyes, I want to melt
    Bleeding Jesus, be quick, be quick

    (And what would you do, my gentlest
    One...?)

    Falling back in fields of rape...
