    Default Madeleine lost the war

    I don't know if it's OK to post this there. It's my first time here even though I'm a long Offspring fan.

    I just registered to offer slight modifications and ask to recommendations to this lyrics, from the first song of the first album, rename Madeleine Lost the War to refer that little girl, supossedly lost at Portugal.

    Madeleine lost the war today
    you'll find her burnt and raped
    Through it all she must have wondered
    what have I done
    But nobody really cares today
    the world's a busy place
    Guess she must've really sinned now
    (Really sinned now)

    I guess we're all just soldiers
    She was only four years old
    Left to die by strangers
    Her family waits
    And if we're all just soldiers
    is it so wrong to be afraid?

    Madeleine lost the war

    Maddy lost the war today
    there must be some mistake
    Say it happens all the time
    and it's said and done
    Little Miss McCann Your soul remains unclaimed
    Guess you must've really sinned now
    (Really sinned now)

    Morality won't help her
    When she lies silent in a morgue
    And all our sorrows just don't count at all
    But will the morning headlines
    Even say that it's a shame
    What are we headin' for

    Madeleine lost the war

    Seen it all before
    Silent on the ground
    as he's walking away
    And I wonder how many more
    everybody take it
    like it's nothin' at all
    Madeleine lost (,lost ,lost ,lost) the war

    I guess we're all just soldiers
    She was only six years old
    Left to die by strangers
    Her family waits
    But will the morning headlines
    Even say that it's a shame
    What are we headin' for?
    As you see, only little modifications, but as Teheran was a coin flip between that city or Baghdad, and later Baghdad was kinda an update, this should also be a good update, or not.

    Please comments.

    I can't help but think that the whole "oh LOL I'm making a satire on a much-publicised horrific event" is getting a little tiresome lately.

    When The Offspring made songs like Beheaded, Demons, Come out and Play, Kill the President, Bad Habit, etc., it didn't meant they enjoyed that directly... I guess you guys are just sissies, go listen Fuckstreets Boys and they crying songs!

    The song should be interpreted the other way around btw, and I will just remember this is an Offspring song with the word Madeleine replacing Jennifer, and McCann replacing 1565. Oh, and the age of the childs were different. If I remember correctly, Dexter wrote "Jennifer lost the war" after reading a newspaper article about a dead child on Route 1565, or something like that.

    What I mean, please, think before crying for nothing! o.o

    Little Miss 1565 refers to an unidentified victim of a fire in the 1930s or something, I believe.

    I thought it was because her body was found by mile marker 1565 on a highway. Does anyone know the actual reason?

    I think it had to do with an old old wooden ship built in 1565 named The Little Miss.
