Sounds of Violence


Lyrics: Charles Cedric Morton            
Music: Sounds of Silence
            by Paul Simon




Swords are clashing on the shields
Blood is running through the fields
All around me men are dying
Soon their ladies will be crying
Their screaming is music to my ears
It brings me tears
I Love, The Sounds of Violence

Combat archers to the rear
Near the front are men with spears
Here and there a javelin thrower
As the setting sun sinks lower
The fighters are standing toe to toe
Exchanging blows
They make, The Sounds of Violence

Some people do not understand
When war drums sound throughout the land
They say that fighting has no reason
That kind of talk should be treason
They say that fighting battles is no good
Of course they would
They hate, The Sounds of Violence
