play No Far Away

from Live Songs and Stories BUY Slabster

When the war had gone on too long
And the crowd said the troops should come home,
Home: this blue planet turning alone
The troops had never been gone

For there's no far away
There is no more far away
And these dreams of the wild west now lead us astray
There is no more far away

When the missiles are waiting to fly
To rip through the innocent sky
If we swing out our six-guns like the sheriff on high
It's not just the bad guys who die

And these changes cannot be denied
We live close to the world's other side
That can save us or kill us, it's time to decide
But the past is no safe place to hide

For there's no far away
There is no more far away
So these dreams of the wild west now lead us astray
There is no more far away

For resentment doesn't die with the dead
Despite what the generals said
And this oil-slick of blood across the ocean will spread
And just poison our own well instead

For there's no far away
There is no more far away
And these dreams of the wild west now lead us astray
There is no more far away
