Push The Button


[War I - Modern War / Impersonal]

 Caged in metal - my protection
 Coordinates they read this direction
 Whatever happened to
 "Don't fire 'til you see their eyes"
 New rules, new ways, more questions
 How can I use my discretion
 My brothers run by armed and eighteen
 While I sit here controlled and waiting
 I'd be the first to trade my button for a blade
 Battlefields are brought to homes
 Where children, babies, mothers roam
 One button wills a game
 While another one
 Blows you away

 I can kill with a finger
 Can I kill without eyes
 I can kill on demand
 Can I kill without why
 While humanity cries
 I will kill in a box
 Will I kill in the streets
 I will kill my own conscience
 Will I kill the peace
 When I push the button in my dreams
 And you scream
 Silent screams
 Corporate Schemes
 Killing screams

 Kill a few to save a lot
 Don't tell me, I know the cause
 There's no time to make up my mind
 Army brass breathing down my back
 In a think tank - life in the abstract
 We are programmed to attack
 When this flag goes on the war path
 I'd rather fight this war with just a blade
 No more metal sunk into my foe
 How can tanks go toe to toe
 I get a medal if you go down in flames

 Walk away from this fate
 Where children scream and cry
 Take a new name
 Move away from the safe
 Out to where the bombs fly - I'll pay
 For my sin -
 In the state that you're livin' in
 Don't wait on me let's begin again
 Let me face the consequence
 Never gonna hear a soldier cry
 Unless you're killin' him
 Still gotta push the button
