Quotes about civil war

I used to think that the Civil War was our country's greatest tragedy, but I do remember that there were some redeeming features in the Civil War in that there was some spirit of sacrifice and heroism displayed on both sides. I see no redeeming features in Watergate.

It was no Insurrection or Rebellion, or even Civil War in any proper sense of these terms... The war... was a war between States regularly organized into two separate Federal Republics... In the beginning, and throughout the contest, the object of the 'Confederates' was to maintain the separate Sovereignty of each State, and the right of self-government, which that necessarily carries with it. The object of the 'Federals,' on the contrary, was to maintain a Centralized Sovereignty over all the States on both sides. This was the fundamental principle involved in the Conflict, which must be kept continually in mind.

Blood Red

Peaceful confrontation meet war machine
Seizing all civil liberties
Honest ballotation among banshee
Spilling blood throughout humanity

You cannot hide the face of death
Oppression ruled by bloodshed
No disguise can deface evil
The massacre of innocent people

Deviated lies fear blinding on your eyes
Enforcing their truth through a gun
Aggressive discipline and barbaric control
Thousands of people cannot be wrong

You cannot hide the face of death
Oppression ruled by bloodshed
No disguise can hide the evil
That stains the primitive sickle

With God On Our Side

Oh my name it is nothin
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the midwest
Its taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And that land that I live in
Has God on its side.
Oh the history books tell it
They tell it so well
The cavalries charged
The indians fell
The cavalries charged
The indians died
Oh the country was young
With God on its side.
Oh the spanish-american
War had its day
And the civil war too
Was soon laid away

Bye & Bye

Words and music by bob dylan
By and by, Im breathin a lovers sigh
While Im sittin on my watch so I can be on time
Im singin loves praises with sugar coated rhyme
By and by, on you Im castin my eye
Im paintin the town, swingin my partner around
Well I know who I can depend on, I know who to trust
Im watchin the road, Im studyin the dust
Im paintin the town, makin my last go-round
Well Im scufflin and Im shufflin and Im walkin on briars
Im not even aquainted with my own desires
Im rollin slow, Im doin all I know
Im tellin myself Ive found true happiness
That I still got a dream that hasnt been repossessed
Im rollin slow goin where the wild roses grow
Well, the future for me is already a thing of the past
You were my first love and you will be my last
Papa gone mad, mama shes feelin sad
Well, Im gonna baptize you in fire so you can sin no more
I wanna establish my rule through civil war

Magdalene Lane

The angels are lost in the city of stars
Wise men are down on their knees
And the Fruitman of Freeway will sell you his cars
When he's sure that you can't find the keys
And the ladies on Magdalene Lane
All worship the sun and the sand
And the migrants who come can't complain
For this is their promised land
MGM studios can't make the nut
They're auctioning Dorothy's shoes
Gable is gone, the good witch is a slut
And I've got the parking-lot blues
The wizard brought benzedrine smiles
And he never let Dorothy doze
Ha- she died as she walked down the aisle
And all that remains is her clothes
Over the rainbow a Kansas tornado
Can twist up a little girl's head
Aunt Em's on relief and the tin man's a thief
And even the wizard can't wake the dead

Im Not Alone

Im always on the run,
Restless searching the sun
Im on my way, its all a
Timeless never ending story
My life is a civil war,
Between all open doors
So little time so many
Goals left to achieve
Its ok, ok, ok,
Insecurity to live this way, I wonder?
Im not alone
Im not alone, Im just to deep in the game
Im not alone, no, Im on my way home
Ive changed the night to day but,
One day Ill have to pay
Mission impossible to build
A place for us two without walls
Im living day by day
I dont have to explain
There is no other solution Im afraid

Mercenary Girl

Oh Mexico
All the time
Dreamin' all about Acapulco
And a sweet thing on my mind
Mogadishu sunrise
Low above the sea
All of those lawyers in California
Won't bring her back to me
Back to me
Back to me
Oh Mercenary Girl
Of all the lowdown places in the world
To be stuck inside of a phone booth
Hangin' on the end of a line
While this civil war keeps ragin' in my mind
Oh Mary Mary
I think you're fine
'Cause you can mix a margarita
From a bottle of turpentine
Just between noon and midnight

The Battle Of Epping Forest

Taken from a news story concerning two rival gangs fighting over east-end protection rights.
Along the forest road, theres hundreds of cars - luxury cars.
Each has got its load of convertible bars, cutlery cars - superscars!
For today is the day when they sort it out, sort it out,
cos they disagree on a gangland boundary.
They disagree on a gangland boundary.
Theres willy wright and his boys -
One helluva noise, thats billys boys!
With fully-fashioned mugs, thats little johns thugs,
The barking slugs - supersmugs!
For today is the day when they sort it out, sort it out,
Yes these christian soldiers fight to protect the poor.
East end heroes got to score in...
The battle of epping forest,
Yes its the battle of epping forest,
Right outside your door.
You aint seen nothing like it.
No, you aint seen nothing like it,
Not since the civil war.
Coming over the hill are the boys of bill,
