Christmas is about kids, charity, peace and love. A great time to speak out against the real anti-christ, that is WAR in all it’s vulgar patriotic disguises.

The Pipes of Peace – Paul McCartney (1983)

I light a candle to our love, In love our problems disapper
But all in all we soon discover,

That one and one is all we long to hear
All round the world, Little children being born to the world
Got to give them all we can til the war is won,

Then will the work be done
Help them to learn, Songs of joy instead of burn, baby, burn
Let us show them how to play the pipes of peace,

Play the pipes of peace
What do you say? Will the human race be run in a day?
Or will someone save this planet were playing on?

Is it the only one?  What are we gonna do? Help them to see,

That the people here are like you and me
Let us show them how to play the pipes of peace
Play the pipes of peace

I light a candle to our love
In love our problems disapper
But all in all we soon discover
That one and one is all we long to hear

Christmas in Fallujah – Billy Joel

It’s evening in the desert, I’m tired and I’m cold
But I am just a soldier, I do what I am told

We came with the crusaders, To save the holy land
It’s Christmas in Fallujah, And no one gives a damn

And I just got your letter, And this is what I read you said
I’m fading from your memory, So I’m just as good as dead

We are the armies of the empire, We are the legionnaires of Rome

It’s Christmas in Fallujah, And we ain’t never coming home
We came to bring these people freedom, We came to fight the infidel
There is no justice in the desert, Because there is no God in hell

They say Osama’s in the mountains, Deep in a cave near Pakistan
But there’s a sea of blood in Baghdad, A sea of oil in the sand
Between the Tigris and Euphrates, Another day comes to an end
It’s Christmas in Fallujah, Piece on Earth goodwill to men

It’s Christmas in Fallujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah
It’s Christmas in Fallujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah
It’s Christmas in Fallujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah
It’s Christmas in Fallujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah

Merry Christmas from Fallujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah
Merry Christmas from Fallujah, Hallelujah, hallelujah

Christmas in Fallujah – Jefferson Pepper

It’s Christmas in Fallujah, to the victors go the spoils
We came to help the people, it’s not about the oil
I came here to Fallujah with presents in my sack
I bring the gift of freedom through unprovoked attack

It’s not the sound of reindeer up on your roof at night
I’m comin’ down your chimney with guns and blinding lights
I’ve gotta take your husband and I’d like to tell you why
But I can’t speak your language, I’m too overwhelmed to try

But Uncle Sam made a list, he’s checkin’ it twice
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice
But sometimes the names, they get mixed up
If they get ’em right half the time that’s close enough

It’s Christmas in Fallujah, children snuggle in their beds
While the corpses of their parents dance around in their heads
Palaces and bridges, we burned them to the ground
‘Cause someone got a contract to rebuild the whole damned town
It’s Christmas in Fallujah, hear the bells begin to toll
I’m sorry about your mother, she’s somewhere down in the hole
I came here to Fallujah to win your hearts and minds
But when we bombed your building your family was inside

Don’t blame it on us soldiers, we’re only doing what we’re told
Never had a spoon of silver, now I’ve got a broken heart of gold
And I’m going to have to live with all these nightmares that I’ve seen
Never taught to know the difference between Osama and Hussein

But Uncle Sam made a list, he’s checkin’ it twice
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice
But sometimes the names, they get mixed up
If they get ’em right half the time that’s close enough

Christmas+in+Fallujah-1
