lyrics

Never The Why

Dawn, ribbons and bugles.
Children looking forward to the day.
All around us are the victims.
Only the wealthy didn't pay.

But again we keep marching, only remembering the how.
Never the why.
Never the why.

My pop did the beaches then Korea.
The old soldier had earned it all.
Made a hero, with bright ribbons and steel.
Gained a title, and lost all his girls.

But again we keep marching, only remembering the how.
Never the why.
Never the why.

Divorces, illness and pensions.
Living standards and rum.
All around us are the victims.
Only the wealthy didn't act dumb.
Don't act dumb.

Why give out names for silence,
now the orange has ran dry.
Remembering the how, never the why.
Never the why , never the why, never the why.
Never the why.

We forget but only on that one day.
That only the wealthy didn't pay.
Remembering the how, never the why.
Never the why, never the why, never the why.
Never the why.
