War Sometimes Lyrics (by Oyster Boy)
Now as the hero comes home, the deed done, vomiting, covered in shit, bile, and blood, they’ll cheer and throw streamers but have no remorse. No matter their debt, he is still their cheap whore. And if you show it, love will tear you apart. You’ll never recount what you saw in the dark. And God forbid you ever make a mistake, they will make sure that it follows you to your grave.
They are the crowd that will boo you off stage. They are the ones who will bitch and complain. No matter what you give them, they will just scoff. They’re always still hungry; it’s never enough. They are the ones who crush pumpkins and laugh, spit in their palms and go out to shake hands. But if nothing will give Brother Bill his great thrill, I will nail him to a beam at the top of the hill!
It’s war sometimes for everyone else, for everyone else it’s war sometimes. Is it worth it?
[Swedish]: God, you who are somewhere, who must be somewhere, have mercy on us. / I could have purged your worries about eternity, but now it’s too late. But feel, to the very end, the triumph of being alive. / Quiet, quiet. / Yes, but under protest! / It is finished.
