Highwire" is an anti-war song by The Rolling Stones featured on their 1991 live album Flashpoint. Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, "Highwire" is one of the rare examples of the Stones taking on political issues - in this case, the fall-out from Persian Gulf War. On the song, Jagger said at the time of its release, "It's not about the war. It's about how it started. Richards continued, saying, "This is not about the war. It's about how you build up some shaky dictator.

Artist: The Rolling Stones. Album: Flaspoint (1991). We sell them missiles, We sell them tanks. And hoping they don't catch the hell-fire. Of hot guns and cold, cold knives. We walk the highwire. Sending the men to the front lines. And tell them to hotbed the sunshine.
