" No End In Sight " --about current events

Barry McGuire's "Eve of Destruction" and Eric Burden's "Sky Pilot" keep going thru my head today as I was reading the Berg thread at ChitChat and thinking of the further events of the war. My old 60's /70's protest songs have been stirred. This would be done that way and I just about have a melody lie for it, too. There are only 7 lines in the first verse because that becomes the chorus eventually. Thanks for the read and comments appreciated.

And I just reread it myself and it could be adapted to a metal piece, too.


" No End In Sight "

It's gotta stop somewhere before it stops us all.
We tried to give them something
But's it's like we gave nothing at all.
There's no rest with the hatred.
No end will ever be in sight.
So maybe the time is now
To make this wrong right.

We gave them money we could have spent at home
For our starving and our lame
We gave them labor of our strongest
To help them to reclaim--
Their growth and prosperity,
But a few don't see it that way
And continue to destroy ours and their own
That pray for peace there everyday.

War is never a pretty thing
And it could have been over by now,
But those few carrying the death torch
Think they'll win something somehow.
But if they kill their own
They'll be no one left to see.
And what good is a nation
If who's left will not be free?

(chorus)
It's gotta stop somewhere before it stops us all.
We tried to give them something
But's it's like we gave nothing at all.
There's no rest with the hatred.
No end will ever be in sight.
So maybe the time is now
To make this wrong right.

So maybe there's only one solution
As much as it brings pain
To those who have to do it
And to those who they might have saved.
They've been fighting now for centuries
And it's not a good way to live.
So get it done and just move on.
There's no glory whoever wins.

(chorus)
It's gotta stop somewhere before it stops us all.
We tried to give them something
But's it's like we gave nothing at all.
There's no rest with the hatred.
No end will ever be in sight.
So maybe the time is now
To make this wrong right.
