GUEST,Rick Lyr Req: One Tin Soldier (53* d) RE: Lyr Req: One Tin Soldier 28 Feb 07


It should be noted that the song wasn't originally recorded for the film. The band Coven (featuring Oz Osbourne - no relation to Ozzy) covered the tune for the movie. Any attempt to delve meaning out of the song by juxtaposing it with the film is most likely futile.

In the bible, judgement day is heralded by a shout and a blast of trumpet. The song lyrics say, "There won't be any trumpets blowin' come the judgment day / On the bloody morning after one tin soldier rides away."

There will be no judgement day. The murderous deeds done in the name of heaven have been done in the name of that which does not exist. There can be no justification come the end because that kind of end will never come. There will be no trumpets. There will be no judgement day. In fact, there is a next day: On the bloody morning after...

The one tin soldier is no longer really human; he is tin; he is, like the tin man, heartless and hollow; he is, like a tin ear, deafened to reality.

Huh, Oz Osbourne sang of this "tin soldier," and Ozzy Osbourne sang of an "iron man." Call the conspiracy patrol!
