THE WORDS THAT MAKETH MURDER


I've seen and done things I want to forget
I've seen soldiers fall like lumps of meat
blown and shot out beyond belief
arms and legs were in the trees
I've seen and done things I want to forget
coming from an unearthly place
longing to see a woman's face
instead of the words that gather pace
the words that maketh murder

:/: these : these : these are the words
    the words that maketh murder :/:
		
I've seen and done things I want to forget
I've seen a corporal whose nerves were shot
climbing behind the fierce gone sun
I've seen flies swarming everyone
soldiers fell like lumps of meat
these are the words • the words are these

death lingering • stunk
flies swarming everyone
over the whole summit peak
flesh quivering in the heat
this was something else again
I fear it cannot be explained
the words that make : the words that make
murder ...

what if i take my problem to the united nations?
