Here you go Japov, something political for you.

War
Chorus
  Aristocrats, bureaucrats
Rats of every kind.
Negotiate, advocate
For the bottom line.
Verse
Morality’s the side show
But it stirs the pot.
Economies the issue.
Believe it or not.
Pre chorus
Close the door- go to war.
Who cares how many die.
Close the door- go to war.
Perpetuate the lie.
Chorus
  Aristocrats, bureaucrats
Rats of every kind.
Rationalize, genocide
For the bottom line.
Verse
Religion is the time bomb
But it’s not the cause.
Billions are the reason
That big cats have claws.
pre chorus
Close the door- go to war.
Who cares how many die.
Close the door- go to war.
Perpetuate the lie.
Chorus
  Aristocrats, bureaucrats
Rats of every kind.
Negotiate, advocate
For the bottom line.
Bridge
Close the door, go to war
Add to the bottom line.
There are billions to be made.
in trade for people’s lives.

Hello Carroll,

Nice write, I like it.  Just a suggestion, nothing really needs to change, just treat V2 and V4 as the pre chorus.  Kudos and best wishes,

Speak soon,

Music is an international language, say it with a song.

Well mister point-meister….

Religion is a time-bomb
We point it, load and lock it
But the true God of creation
Is not that sort of prophet :)

Yep I get it.

3o pieces of Silver

Verse 1
You tried to run away
Hide from what you’d done;
But no hound’s more persistent
Than the guilty one.
Chorus
For thirty pieces of silver
You sold out your friend.
It wasn’t money but jealousy
that made you cash him in.
For thirty pieces of silver
You sold out your friend.
Verse 2
They nailed him on the cross.
Read his lips where you stood.
You could hear him forgive you
Beneath your dark hood.
Chorus
For thirty pieces of silver
You sold out your friend.
It wasn’t money but jealousy
that for thirty pieces of silver
You sold out your friend.
Verse 3
Cut deeper than the spear
A wound that won’t heal
A lasting stain on your name
When you were revealed.
chorus
For thirty pieces of silver
You sold out your friend.
It wasn’t money but jealousy
that made you cash him in.
Bridge
You sold your soul for a Profit
Even though it cost him his life.
Too bad you didn’t realize
You were betraying Jesus Christ.

I love the rhythm in War, it feels very musical just reading it.
