about

The lottery of where you happen to be born. A song inspired by walking the dog in the beautiful Scottish countryside against the horrendous pictures on the TV of civilians caught in war zones around the world.

lyrics

Chorus
I hear murderous cries, coming out of the skies
I see slugs lying cold on the ground
But this is no battlefield, this is no turf war
Just nature laying her head down

I walk round the field on a warm summer’s night
The evening breeze on my face
The grass moves in waves like the tides on the shore
A beautiful magical place

Chorus

Coming out of the trees at the top of the hill
I stand and look down o’er the town
And count my blessings I am where I am
With beauty and peace all around

Chorus

Is it Destiny? Is it just chance?
Born the wrong place, the wrong time
I think of the innocents caught in the fire
In the midst of political mire

Their rain coming down is bullets and shells
Their wind a missile inbound
Woman and children with nowhere to run
As bodies pile up all around

Chorus
But theirs is a battlefield, theirs is a turf war
I beg you lay your arms down.
