Return To Glory

I was cleaning up some blog errors and typos and noticed that a youtube Glory video could gave been included in last month's story on the 54th Regiment. Well here it is and the youtuber who posted it had a Guns and Roses soundtrack. I always just assumed, like your typical 58 year old close-minded guy, that Guns and Roses was heavy metal crap, but that's about the 10,000 time I've been wrong.

"What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach...
So, you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it!
Well, he gets it! N' I don't like it any more than you men." *
Look at your young men fighting Look at your women crying
Look at your young men dying The way they've always done before
Look at the hate we're breeding Look at the fear we're feeding
Look at the lives we're leading The way we've always done before
My hands are tied The billions shift from side to side
And the wars go on with brainwashed pride For the love of God and our human rights
And all these things are swept aside By bloody hands time can't deny
And are washed away by your genocide And history hides the lies of our civil wars
D'you wear a black armband When they shot the man
Who said "Peace could last forever" And in my first memories
They shot Kennedy I went numb when I learned to see
So I never fell for Vietnam We got the wall of D.C. to remind us all
That you can't trust freedom When it's not in your hands
When everybody's fightin' For their promised land
And I don't need your civil war It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh I don't need your civil war
Look at the shoes your filling Look at the blood we're spilling
Look at the world we're killing The way we've always done before
Look in the doubt we've wallowed Look at the leaders we've followed
Look at the lies we've swallowed And I don't want to hear no more
My hands are tied For all I've seen has changed my mind
But still the wars go on as the years go by With no love of God or human rights
'Cause all these dreams are swept aside By bloody hands of the hypnotized
Who carry the cross of homicide And history bears the scars of our civil wars
"We practice selective annihilation of mayors And government officials
For example to create a vacuum Then we fill that vacuum
As popular war advances Peace is closer" **
I don't need your civil war It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh And I don't need your civil war
I don't need your civil war I don't need your civil war
Your power hungry sellin' soldiers In a human grocery store
Ain't that fresh I don't need your civil war
I don't need one more war I don't need one more war
Whaz so civil 'bout war anyway
