There is a war

There is a war


Μετά από το ωραίο ποστ του Wert01gf θυμήθηκα το φανταστικό τραγούδι του Λέοναρντ Κοέν. Επίκαιρο όπως πάντα.

There is a war between the rich and poor,
a war between the man and the woman.
There is a war between the ones who say there is a war
and the ones who say there isn't.
Why don't you come on back to the war, that's right, get in it,
why don't you come on back to the war, it's just beginning.

Well I live here with a woman and a child,
the situation makes me kind of nervous.
Yes, I rise up from her arms, she says "I guess you call this love";
I call it service.

Why don't you come on back to the war, don't be a tourist,
why don't you come on back to the war, before it hurts us,
why don't you come on back to the war, let's all get nervous.

You cannot stand what I've become,
you much prefer the gentleman I was before.
I was so easy to defeat, I was so easy to control,
I didn't even know there was a war.

Why don't you come on back to the war, don't be embarrassed,
why don't you come on back to the war, you can still get married.

There is a war between the rich and poor,
a war between the man and the woman.
There is a war between the left and right,
a war between the black and white,
a war between the odd and the even.

Why don't you come on back to the war, pick up your tiny burden,
why don't you come on back to the war, let's all get even,
why don't you come on back to the war, can't you hear me speaking?

"There's a war going on
between the sun and the moon
Before they come to terms we'll be consumed"

But the leaders of the free world,
are just little boys throwing stones.
And it's easy to ignore,
till they're walking on the door of your home. Elbow

Ναι wert ένας ηγέτης λείπει.
