    The original version of this was one of the first vocal compositions I posted on SoundCloud wayback when - Fighting Between the Wars it was originally called - and it's had a few acoustic outings at small musical events over the months. However, I fancied taking it in an entirely new direction for a reworking with a pseudo-Nile Rodgers guitar sound and a bit of mixing trickery to get the strummy second guitar to sound more like a Rhodes electric piano than a guitar...anyway...here you go...

    (Fighting) Between the Wars

    In kinder times, they're sinning, but forsaken there's no winning
    The judges call and we have to tell them no
    The thieves are running wild. But, they're drinking blessed mild,
    and all our thoughts are with them as they go

    Won't you run this way with me?
    I'm fighting fires a little better this time
    Won't you run away with me
    or we carry on until we feel nothing

    Fighting between the wars, take a chance or break a law
    Hoping they'll never catch us now we're running
    Facing up to older scores, Evened odds we've had before
    But, we can seek neutrality

    The gentler hand that's feeding, takes the food that we're all needing
    The judgement scorns the honour that they show
    The thieves once running wild now screaming, "Mercy mild!"
    still all our thoughts are with them as they go

    Won't you hide away with me?
    I found the fire a little warmer this time
    Won't you come and stay with me
    Or we carry on as if we feel nothing

    Fighting between the wars, take a chance on broken laws
    Hoping they'll never catch us now we're running
    Facing up to colder scores, Even gods we've heard before
    But, we can face neutrality

    Fighting between the wars, the fire's gone out, there is no more
    Knowing they'll never catch us now
    Sailing up to golden shores, we can hear the ocean's roar
    Now we have found
    Oh, yes, we have found
    Well, we have found Neutrality
