"I think the first chance one of those lovers gets, he's going to shoot the Major right in the head... Sir!" -- The Dirty Dozen

.

lyrics

A screaming comes across the sky.
While I'm behind the zero.
(A) time to take the gun & hide.
An existential Nero.

Any fool can make it more complex.
But truth is never simple.

I can't stand it although I planned it
Can't defect to stand army of lovers down
Can't give in to you can't conceive a truth of concrete shoes—
to just let 'em drown.

I sat awake and thought about The Why,
While How was getting evil.
Scratching an itch under the screaming sky
Look at the lonely people.

From at a distance we're in the same ship
With too much weight for sailing.

I can't stand it although I planned it
Can't defect to stand army of lovers down
or at least to turn 'em all around.
Can't give in to you can't conceive a truth-y cross
to nail army of lovers on

Ground is falling, sky is screaming
Where are all these lovers leading?

Since the world has caught on fire, let's get warm and build it higher

They are in love. (Fuck the war.)
And they are ALL in love.
They are in love—

We are in love. (Fuck the war.)
And we are ALL in love.
We are in love.'

Hey!
This army you've got,
Is all that you've got
It's all that you ever will have.

So… you'd better strike up the band of one.
You'd better be packing up your gun.
Take aim and take fire.
Take blame and be wild.

This army you see
Is all that you need
And be all that you can be.

Be warm and be wild
And every single time you make love --
Make war!
Make peace!

You are a lover's army.
