Old Autumn War tunes: Recognize

RecognizeHere’s another song from my band days with the Autumn War. Recognize is one of the first songs we ever did as a band. The theme of the song, a sarcastic comment on the idea that there’s peace in our times, is a reference to Neville Chamberlain coming back from his summit with Hitler, pre-WWII. It’s also a biblical reference, I think, but I can’t remember where it’s found in that book. Anyway, our politicians and pundits are fond of trotting out that idea whenever they hare off to the Middle East or wherever there’s trouble; they hare off, hold a meeting of the aggrieved parties and then declare peace in our times. Of course, there never is. You’d have to be weak in the head to believe a politician. Of any party.
