Dire Straits ~ Brothers In Arms~

No Copyright Breach intended- Dire Straits ~ Bothers in Arms.

A friend of mine sent me this powerful Song, and I just want you to reflect upon the words of Mark Knopfler’s excellent performance of this Song. As it touched me deeply in light of what we now see unfurling again as  Nations go to War.

This was back in 1988 taken at Nelson Mandela’s Live concert in aid of celebrating his Birthday … Another country who that like the  man Mandela himself,  has known much suffering..

A country where by no United Nations came to aid its desperate people who were torn apart, murdered and tortured pillaged and raped and destroyed by tyrants in power.. But then maybe there was nothing to  be gained in empty fields of dried vegetation full of blood sweat and tears of people who tried to farm their lands.

And now once again we hear our leaders saying they are going to war to aid the plight of the Down Trodden, yes every one deserves to be helped I totally agree. But I wonder just what three lettered word persuaded them the most?

Dire Straits ~Brothers in Arms~


These Mist covered Mountains,

Are home now for me

But my home is the lowlands

And will always be

Someday you’ll return to your valleys

And your farms

And you’ll no longer burn to be Brothers in Arms


Through these Fields of Destruction

Baptisms of Fire

I’ve witnessed your Suffering as the battles raged higher

And though they did hurt me so bad

In the Fear and Alarm

You did not desert me

My Brothers in Arms

There are so many different Worlds

So many Different Suns

And we have just One World

But we live in different ones.


Now the Suns gone to Hell

And the Moons riding high

Let me bid you farewell

Every man has to die

But it’s written in the starlight

In every line on your palm

We’re Fools to make War on our

Brothers in Arms

    Great song for sure. I do hope someday we can put down arms and stop the instanity of war, but, for now, as long as there are people out there insane enough to fly planes into buildings for some demented cause, war will persist.

      Thank you for dropping in… Nice to meet you Tim.. Yes a very great Song—
      Many need to take their blinkers off as to just WHO the terrorists are in our so called Civilized World.. When we remove those indoctrinated thought patterns- then we begin to see just how this world operates and the baddies are not always those who hold the Guns.. But sit in their Ivory towers and orchestrate the destruction while they reap the spoils to live off the suffering of others.
      Have a Peaceful Day Tim… Dreamwalker

    Thank you for sharing this music, which also takes me back in time, but the words are much more powerful to me now than then. Amazing. Thank you.

    I live in hope Sue that one day all mankind will lay down their arms and that one day the removal of nuclear arsenals will be removed from all nations , I dont think this will occur in our lifetimes , we can only hope that commonsense will override the religious , political anarchy that is engulfing the world , it does not seem to be slowing down but in fact accelerating at a greater speed.
    May the universal architect forgive us.

      Yes Ian, we can only Hope!.. Maybe the Universal Architect may well give this planet an antibiotic and rid this planet of the Human disease in which we have polluted its Air, Oceans and each other in the Killing spree we seem so bent on doing to ourselves and Mother Nature…. And Maybe She will Sneeze so hard and shake us right off this Planet once and for all… For I doubt even the universal architect thought by giving us Free Will it would mean we would try to destroy everything, ourselves included…

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
