about

I was sitting on the sofa one night, strumming a guitar and drinking a beer, a 24 hour news channel was playing in the background, showing scenes of a soldier's body being repatriated.

I tried to write down how I felt in that moment, reflecting on how disconnected we are from the realities of wars that are fought in our name, sometimes for spurious reasons.

"Do we truly value all the names that died, or were they just the ones with the cheapest lives?"

lyrics

I hit the chord one final time
Drink a peaceful pint, another soldier dies
From my cushioned seat beneath the safest skies
I watch bullets rip through distant lives
It's done me no good

Is there honour found in a freedom fight
When you march to war through a fog of lies?
Do we truly value all the names that died
Or were they just the ones with the cheapest lives?
It's done us no good

I hit the chord one final time
Drink a peaceful pint, another soldier dies
