Silent Tree Music - Song Lyrics
( Illegal arms trade gun runner trader song lyrics: Kalashnikov,
Viktor Bout - Merchant of Death, master of war )
HEY, IT'S NOT ME
Copyright © 2006 - MickTerry.com
On YouTube, performed LIVE by MICK TERRY (soon!)
Mikhail Kalashnikov is one of my heroes
for bringing mass destruction down to a smaller scale,
where killing can be enjoyed by armies of younger boys
and people like me can make a hefty sale.
Instruments of death can be a grand occupation.
There always will be someone wanting to take control.
There always will be unrest & something else to possess.
& people will buy a gun to sell their soul.
HEY, IT'S NOT ME that does the killing.
HEY, IT'S NOT ME that starts the hate.
There's a need that I'm fulfilling .
Is it so wrong that I get paid?
HEY, don't blame me.
Benefits abound for me. I love my vocation.
I travel to far places, meeting important men.
I'm selling guns on account & selling them by the pound.
I'm selling to rebels & their governments.
They call me a master of war,
a merchant of menace & other nasty things.
But, if you look around, there's no one that's unblemished
& I see more than one bloodstain on you.
Anytime there's social strife, it's good for my business.
When hearing of rebellion, probably I've been there.
But in the event I'm not, I'll be on the next plane out.
If profits are to be made, I'm anywhere.
[spoken] Hey, we're talking weapons of mass production here.
Hey, we're talking big business.
