Zombie By The Cranberries.

"In your head, in your head they are fighting,

With their tanks and their bombs,

And their bombs and their guns.

In your head, in your head, they are crying"

"Another mother's breakin',

Heart is taking over.

When the vi'lence causes silence,

We must be mistaken."

I love this song. It really makes me think about war and how mcuh young teens are persuaded to join the army by recruiters who only talk of the great things about war. Like pride, serving your country, and the financial benefits. They get in your head and take away your thoughts (hence the song title Zombie) and make you into a soldier. The second quote from the song, to me, is refering to the time when a mothers son dies from war and her heart is breaking and they just cant believe it. Its sad but i love it because it makes you think about things.
