Parralox - The Lebanon

The Lebanon

Written by Jo Callis & Phil Oakey

Verse 1
She dreams of nineteen sixty-nine
Before the soldiers came
The life was cheap on bread and wine
And sharing meant no shame
She is awakened by the screams
Of rockets flying from nearby
And scared she clings onto her dreams
To beat the fear that she might die

And who will have won
When the soldiers have gone
From the lebanon
The lebanon

Verse 2
Before he leaves the camp he stops
He scans the world outside
And where there used to be some shops
Is where the snipers sometimes hide
He left his home the week before
He thought hed be like the police
But now he finds he is at war
Werent we supposed to keep the peace

Repeat Chorus

Middle 8

I must be dreaming
It cant be true
I must be dreaming
It cant be true

Additional Info:
Taken from the iconic album "Hysteria" by The Human League. Their follow up to Dare. Hysteria is also the name of the unofficial website that I ran for The Human League back in the early 90s when the internet was just starting. I made a lot of friends on that website, many of which I'm still in touch with today thanks to social media.
In thr fan fiction section of "Hysteria" website called Dreams, I had dreamt of a Human League Laserdisc, which featured The Human League as superheroes / supervillians. It's via this section that I became friends with Ian Burden, who's now played on several Parralox albums. Funny how the world works!
