Nothing but a Warplay [1917] - 1917 was one of the important milestones of the 1900s with the ongoing grim and cruel world war which more and more led to a society in dissolution with the unexpected development of the Russian Revolution which definitely put an end to the old world. This song reflects the madness in every war and the play that is supposed to trick us into believing all the heroic bullshit.

music and lyrics: Armand Gutheim

They give you a story
of greatness, pride and glory
a world that can reunify
They give you a purpose
so great behind the surface
they make you believe you can fly

They give you a big part
so you think you are real smart
you grow to believe you’re so sly
They give you the power
to make your enemy cower
but nobody will tell you why!...

chorus - - -
It’s a lie
what they say
You will die
In the sky
they don’t pay
for your cry…
It’s nothing but a war play!

They give you a reason
to fight against all treason
when nobody will qualify
They give you a feeling
of floating above the ceiling
you feel so incredibly high

They give you a title
to keep you highly vital
but you know, it’s something you buy
They give you a memorial
to ensure you’ll be immortal
but nobody can tell you why!...
