Pink floyd song “Us and Them” and ellections in Bosnia and Herzegovina

“Us and Them” is a Pink Floyd song which appeared on their 1973 album ” The Dark Side of the Moon”.
I publish the lyrics today as they were one of the first things I thought of hearing about yesterdays ellections in Bosnia and Herzegoivina.
Sad that these words still are so relevant after 40 years. 

 

“Us And Them”

 

Us and Them

And after all we’re only ordinary men

Me, and you

God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do

Forward he cried from the rear

and the front rank died

And the General sat, as the lines on the map

moved from side to side

Black and Blue

And who knows which is which and who is who

Up and Down

And in the end it’s only round and round and round

Haven’t you heard it’s a battle of words

the poster bearer cried

Listen son, said the man with the gun

There’s room for you inside

Down and Out

It can’t be helped but there’s a lot of it about

With, without

And who’ll deny that’s what the fightings all about

Get out of the way, it’s a busy day

And I’ve got things on my mind

For want of the price of tea and a slice

The old man died

    Once Upon a Time in Balkans – Lessons From Yugoslav War

    Once upon a time there was this amazing land, placed on mountainous Balkan Peninsula, called Yugoslavia, built on ideas of brotherhood, equality and sharing. I grew up there living together side by side with many cultures and religions. I had wonderful childhood.

    “First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out because I was not a communist;
    Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist;
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist;
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew;
    Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

    Martin Niemöller
