I Bite The Bullet

I bite the bullet today

I bite the bullet
And go out into the world
With a smile

Though I'm dying inside

I put on my best face
And go out into the world
With a positive spin

And I think of those
In times gone by

Who bit the bullet before me

And went out into the world
With a smile

Though they were dying inside

I think of the Muslims of Jerusalem
With the Crusaders at their gates

I think of the Jews of Berlin
With the Brown-shirts at their doors

I think of the People of Europe
With the Plague in their streets

I think of the People of China
With the Famine in their land

I think of the Indigenous Americans
With the White Man at their shores

I think of the African Tribes
With the Slave Ships on their beaches

I think of the British
With Heinkels in their skies
