You're watching people fighting
You're watching people losing on Armistice Day
You're watching people fighting
You're watching people losing on Armistice Day

The watchers do the wincing, reporters so convincing
The TV never lies
I went looking for a war and the only guns I saw
Never used in anger

Watching people fighting
Watching people losing, Armistice Day
You're watching people fighting
You're watching people losing on Armistice Day

The fixers do the fixing, the locals do the lynching
The papers deny
I went looking for a headline, got talking to the back line
They'd never seen the action

Watching people fighting
You're watching people losing on Armistice Day
You're watching people fight or say they might
Oh, say they lose on Armistice Day

Watchers do the wincing, reporters so convincing
The TV never lies, it never lies
I went looking for a war and the only guns I saw
Never used in anger

Fixers do the fixing, the locals do the lynching
The papers deny
