The Words That Maketh Murder (3:46)

Cover of Let England Shake

From Let England Shake and 4 other releases

The Words That Maketh Murder Songfacts says: The lyrics are a harrowing portrait of the obscenity of war and are awash with brutal scenes. “I’ve seen and done things I want to forget,” Harvey sings, “I’ve seen soldiers fall like lumps of me-ee-eat.” At the end of the song she and collaborators John Parish and Mick Harvey question, “What if I take my problem to the United Nations?”.
