Cannons Lyrics


Look alive, break aside, draw a line in the sand
Here's the band: treat us like we're extras, we're not epic
Treat us like we're not on our boots
You leave us on the stretches where the credits roll

The king will simply build institutes
We are a part team military muscles
Tell ourselves we're the part of a soul
Smashing regimes between (???) challenging
Education, education and war

We're gonna need a lot more Cannons
If we gonna be out by Christmas
We're gonna need a lot more cannons
If we gonna be out by Christmas

I know, I know, if you wanna know,
If you wanna see your face again
I know we feel the same way

And making all the difficult decisions, to follow
Petitions on children first
How about a person of position, you say
You will be happy if you expect the worst
Armor, paper strolls and a Bible,
So going out across apartment stores
You will be issued with a rifle on arrival, champs
Education, education and war

We're gonna need a lot more cannons
If we gonna be out by Christmas
We're gonna need a lot more cannons
If we gonna be out by Christmas

I know, I know, if you wanna know,
If you wanna see your face again
I know we feel the same way

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Show us the way to go
And let heaven help us
Show us the way to go
Save our souls
Show us the way back home
Save our souls
Show us the way to go

Cannons
  • This climatic song finishes with a bitter two-minute apocalyptic poem, which is read by actor Bill Nighy. The verse references the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan over a soundtrack of battlefield noises and brouhaha from the Houses of Parliament. Speaking to The Independent, Kaisers frontman Ricky Wilson said: "When I was writing the lyrics for the record, the whole World War One centenary thing was flying around. So if you're writing honestly, it's going to leak in there."

    "I wrote the poem as an exercise originally," he continued. "The original story was an imaginary assault by a superpower – not necessarily the USA, trying to take over Hell."

    "They are invading Hell, wiping out Hell. Then going "now what do we do, where do we go next?"'
  • British actor Bill Nighy is best known in the music world for his song "Christmas is All Around" in the British romantic comedy movie Love Actually, which was a clear parody of Wet Wet Wet's "Love Is All Around."
  • The album title is referenced in this song. The first part is a reference to Tony Blair's election pledge that "education, education, education" was the cornerstone of Britain's future. The "& War" passes judgment on the rest of his legacy in the light of the military activities in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    It was Bill Nighy who came up with the album title. Ricky Wilson told Q magazine: "I was thinking of calling it Education & War, but Bill loved the full title. Everyone in Britain knows what it refers to."
