BP Fallon & The Bandits – The War To Fight For Love (official video)

“A mantric poetic song-spiel with ’70s NYC blood ties, not least because The Bandits feature Blondie’s classic rhythm section”
– Uncut Magazine on ‘The War To Fight For Love’ which is also available on the free CD with the August edition of Uncut (The Band on the cover)

THE WAR TO FIGHT FOR LOVE
Lyrics – BP Fallon
Music – BP Fallon/Aaron Lee Tasjan/Nigel Harrison/Clem Burke
(ASCAP/IMRO)

Heart of magic
A mind of magnificence
We’re on the cusp of a great significance
Dreams are our wishes, the loaves and the fishes
It all comes together, more than serendipitous

Nobody’s alone
We’re all in this together
There’s common ground among us
You and your angel’s feathers

Heaven’s made for saints, the world is made for sinners
This life heaven ain’t ‘cept everyone’s a winner
Roll up roll up roll up
Roll up roll up roll up
The light, the light, the light, I see the light
The war to fight for love
Alright, alright, alright, I feel alright
The war to fight for love
The light, the light, the light, I see the light
The war to fight for love
Alright, alright, alright, I feel alright
The war to fight for love

(wild Aaron guitar solo)

You’re my non-druggie Edie Sedgwick
Sparkling through the corridors of power
Doubting Thomas showed you a dagger
You smiled, gave him a flower

You think it’s crazy, I don’t care, I’m as fucked up as anyone else
You think it’s pipedreams, I don’t care, I’ve as much luck as anyone else

The light, the light, the light, I see the light
The war to fight for love
Alright, alright, alright, I feel alright
The war to fight for love
The light, the light, the light, I see the light
The war to fight for love
Alright, alright, alright, I feel alright
The war to fight for love

(Ian McLagan makes it Sunday on his Hammond organ)

Roll up roll up roll up
Roll up roll up roll up
Roll up roll up roll up
Roll up roll up roll up
The war to fight for love

Roll up roll up roll up
The war to fight for love

(Aaron the guitar man)

Let not our dreams be crushed by apparent reality
Let us harvest our due duality
Yes
