Five years on

Five years on
From the beginning of this war
Five years on
And killing fields once more
Five years on
And internecine strife
Five years on
Destroys life after life
Five years on
And there is no sign of peace
Five years on
And not a sign of any release
Five years on
The excesses of one tyrant's reign
Five years on
Are exceeded over and over again
Five years on
And those hailed as liberators
Five years on
Are cursed as perpetrators
Five years on
Perhaps they will check all facts
Five years on
Before future liberation acts
Five years on
