Be Brave, Son, Be Brave Lyrics

"Be brave, son, be brave
Everything will be okay"
A clever line i can't afford to lose
"For tomorrow you'll seed
The roots of victory
And battle hymns
For centuries of use"

"Bullshit" I say
All with one foot in the grave
As they scoff and crown
Their failings as an art
With a glowing grin that gleams
And a tongue built to demean
Their offered words
Are nothing but a farce

There's murder in the trees
And wonder in the eaves
I'm sat sending out messages on keys
Because my sister went insane
My brother died in vain
And me, i lost my faith

"Be sane, men, be sane
Let them writhe now in their pain"
While the merchants post their flyers on your door
It's wonderful, you'll see
As they gargle with their greed
The infallible fathers we adore

Their profession is their sin
Going all out for the win
And they poison us
With all that they espouse
And keep us fat and fed
On circuses and bread
While their bullets spray
Inside the slaughterhouse The vested virgins weep
Mars drifts off to sleep
At the heels of Lady Liberty
While my sisters go insane
My brothers die in vain
And me, losing all my faith

"Be brave, son, be brave
Disregard what they may say
The disillusioned fascist's run amok"
He's painting pictures on the walls
In his denim coveralls
While the shepherd's tending blindly
To her flock

Awake, son, awake
And now see the dream we've made
Another Sodom toppled like a brick
'Neath the ramparts we have honed
Temples that we droned
Human Gods too sacrosanct to kick

The taxman is your king
The mayor runs a ring
While i'm sat inside in search of some meaning
Because my sister went insane
My brother died in vain
And me, i lost my faith
