Anthem For Doomed Youth (LP版) - 10000 Maniacs (一万个疯子)

For whom do the bells

Toll when sentenced to die

The stuttering rifles

Will stifle the cry

The monstrous anger

The fear's rapid rattle

Desert inferno

Kids dying like cattle

 

Don't tell me we're not prepared

 

I've seen today's morning

 

He's eighteen

And he's eager

 

He can be quite mean

 

No mockeries for them

No prayers or bells

The demented choirs

The wailing of shells

The boys holding candles

On untraveled roads

Spreads fear like fire

Shrapnel explodes

 

I think it's wrong to conscript our youth

 

Against their will

 

When plenty of our citizenry

 

Really like to kill

 

What signposts will lead to armageddon's fires

What bugles will call them

From crowded gray shires

The women sit quiet

With death on their minds

A slow dusk descending

The drawing of blinds

 

Make the hunters all line up

 

It's their idea of fun

 

And let those be forgiven

Who never owned a gun

 

Was it him or me

Or the

Wailing of the

Dead

 

The laughing soldiers

Cast their lots

You can

Cut the dread
