Skyclad - Jeopardy Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • As the daylight starts to fade -
  • Twisting shadows all around.
  • Dead soldiers on parade -
  • The ghosts of Porton Down.
  • Hidden from the public eye, "A cause for regret"
  • Wrote the Brigadier-General with the chemistry set.
  • "Can't be more specific - the matter's confidential,
  • Links with other incidents are just coincidental."
  • In jeopardy - welcome to the lion's den,
  • We skate on thin ice - dice with death.
  • While young boys drown in seas of poison -
  • We are the plagiarists of breath.
  • We go left right left right left -
  • They're left in the right again.
  • We go right left right left right -
  • We've no rights left anymore.
  • Military science picking the locks
  • Of a 20th Century Pandora's box.
  • A father tells a son,
  • "The army makes a man of you."
  • Now all vital signs are gone -
  • Another joins the countless few.
  • Mentioned in dispatches - they tell the same old story,
  • 'Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori,"
  • They listened to him screaming -
  • They sat and watched him writhe,
  • Taking turns observing as his body burns alive.
  • Rifles firing at the sky -
  • As the "Last Post" starts to play.
  • Young soldiers often die -
  • And the truth gets filed away.
  • Thomas Atkins (Private 20967),
  • Now reports for duty -
  • He's been posted up to heaven.
  • Enlisted by conscription - a participant unwilling.
  • Who didn't plan to give his life for taking the "King's Shilling".
  • In jeopardy - welcome to the lion's den,
  • We skate on thin ice - dice with death,
  • While young boys drown in seas of poison -
  • We are the plagiarists of breath
