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



The laughing soldiers

Cast their lots

You can

Cut the dread
