no reason

carve it into my eyes
not behind not to fade
but there in front of my eyes

when he left he said someone was singing of hero-death noble-death
and the man on the dias said come with me into the glory . shoot

when he left he said someone was singing the wonder the valley of death
and the man in charge said there is reason golden reason to die . shoot

love there is no reason and it is all shot to hell
there is no hero no wonder no singing

there is smoke and thunder and death
come to shatter my left-behind heart

carve that on to my bare eyes
come with a sabre and work on it
in the half-light of the fought world

there is a charge for love
and it is a wild wild charge

but there is no charge for guns
