Who will save the war child baby? Who controls the 
key?
The web we weave is thick and sordid, fine by me
At times of war, we're all the losers, there's no victory

Beneath his shirt he wore the mark, he bore the bark

A two inch deep incision carved, into his side

Who's the loser now, eh?
Who's the loser now, eh?
We're all losers now
We're all losers now
