Melt the Guns

This song is by XTC and appears on the album English Settlement (1982).

Programmes of violence, as entertainment
Brings the disease into your room
We know the germ which is man-made in metal
Is really the key to your own tomb

Prevention is better than cure
Bad apples affecting the pure
You'll gather your senses, I'm sure
Then agree to

Melt the guns, melt the guns, melt the guns
And never want to fire them

Melt the guns, melt the guns, melt the guns
And never more desire them

Melt the guns (you want to)
Melt the guns, melt the guns
And never want to fire them

Melt the guns, melt the guns, melt the guns
And never more desire them

Children will want them, mothers supply them
As long as your killers are heroes
And all the media will fiddle while Rome burns
Acting like modern-time Neros

Prevention is better than cure
Bad apples affecting the pure
You'll gather your senses, I'm sure
Then agree to

Melt the guns, melt the guns, melt the guns
And never want to fire them

Melt the guns, melt the guns, melt the guns
And never more desire them

Melt the guns (you want to) melt the guns, melt the guns
And never want to fire them

Melt the guns, melt the guns, melt the guns
And never more desire them

I'm speaking to the Justice League of America
The U. S. of A.
Hey, you -- yes, you, yes, you -- in particular
When it comes to the judgment day, and you're standing at the gates in your weaponry
You dare go down on one knee, clasp your hands in prayer and start quoting me
'Cause we say
We say

Our father we have managed to contain the epidemic in one place, now
Let's hope they shoot themselves instead of others, help to sterilize the race now
We've trapped the cause of the plague in the land of the free and the home of the brave
And if you listen quietly you can hear them shooting from grave to grave
If you listen quite quietly you can hear them shooting from grave to grave
If you listen quite quietly you can hear them shooting from grave to grave
Grave to grave to grave to grave to grave to grave
Shooting from grave to grave to grave to grave to grave to grave
You should -- melt -- the - guns --

Melt the guns, melt the guns
And never more to fire them

Melt the guns
Melt the guns (you want to)
Melt the guns
And never more desire them

Melt the guns, melt the guns, melt the guns
And never more to fire them

Melt the guns
Melt the guns (you want to)
Melt the guns
And never more desire them

Melt the guns
Melt the guns now

Melt the guns
Oh, melt the guns now

Melt the guns
Melt the guns now

Melt the guns
Melt the guns now
