Josh Ritter - "Girl in the War"
"Paul said to Peter you got to rock yourself a little harder / Pretend the dove from above is a dragon and your feet are on fire / But I got a girl in the war, Paul / The only thing I know to do Is turn up the music and pray that she makes it through / Because the keys to the Kingdom got lost inside the Kingdom / And the angels fly around in there but we can't see them / I got a girl in the war, Paul / I know that they can hear me yell / If they can't find a way to help her they can go to Hell"
Talking Heads - "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)"
"Home is where I want to be / Pick me up and turn me 'round / I feel numb, born with a weak heart / I guess I must be having fun"
Edwin Starr - "War"
"War! I despise, 'cause it means the destruction of innocent lives / War means tears to thousands of mother's eyes, when their sons gone to fight and lose their lives ... War has shattered many a young man's dreams, made him disabled, bitter and mean"
