John & The Masters - Testo Lyrics A Tin of Beans

Descrizione A Tin of Beans

Tempo fa un mio amico decise di entrare in Marina, scelta che non apprezzai non solo per i rischi che un impegno militare inevitabilmente porta, ma anche perchè sarebbe stato via a lungo. Questa canzone è la somma di tutte le parole con cui ho provato a farlo desistere dall'intraprendere quella strada. Senza risultati.

Testo della canzone

"A TIN OF BEANS"

You said goodbye and took your cap
You got to live for the death land
In the death land, you'll lose one leg
In the death land, your blood spreads

Are you sure who, what you fight for?
Is it good enough this ground of the thorns?
This ground of thorns, has beaten you down
This ground of thorns, of you spares the noun

So look around, look around
A quiet night is coming down
Look around, look around
You, my brother went away from town

Tell me now just what you've got,
A dusty trigger and a dirty coat
A dirty coat, you gonna wash it yourself
A dirty coat, just what you get back

I hope you realize what war means:
Broken hearts and a tin of beans.
A tin of beans, stinky and tacky
A tin of beans, like those floating stiffs

So look around, look around
A quiet night is coming down
Look around, look around
You, my brother went away from town

I warned you it was a trick,
You told me it was the glory trill
The glory trill and a bravery award
Honors, thrones and your fame on the wall

It's not hard to understand
You ain't nothing but a mouth full of sand
Full of sand, like medals you display
Full of sand, wind carried away

Sure as the sun, at the end of it all
You've got to reckon with your rises and falls
Rises and falls, indelible scars
Rises and falls, in the brain and in the heart

So look around, look around
A quiet night is coming down
Look around, look around
You, my brother went away from town
You, my brother went away from town
You, my brother went away from town
