White horses on a range of blue

the sky is grey and I'm telling you

stones in the yard will bare the names

piles of silver hide the blames

Did you ever wonder why?

Will we ever understand?

Can a man judge a man,

who sends another man to die?

not for country

not for love

but for money

just for money

when names are numbers in a row

waves are high and the winds will blow

as fast as they can out of breath

some go headlong onto death

Did you ever wonder why?

Will we ever understand?

Can a man judge a man,

who sends another man to die?

not for country

not for love

but for money

just for money

while more numbers will mount the steeds

to ride the range of dangerous deeds

stones in the yards will bare more names

piles of silver hide more blames

Did you ever wonder why?

Will we ever understand?

Can a man judge a man,

who sends another man to die?

not for country

not for love

but for money

just for money

It is not a good time in the bay

when common sense has gone away
