GUEST,Ireland Are lyrics offensive (69* d) Are lyrics offensive 28 Sep 02

Should people take offence at lyrics, what would people see as taboo? For example would this cause offence?
Don't bury me in Irelands fienian pastures
take me home to Ulster let me die
And on my grave just wright a simple message
here lies a soldier of the UDR (any regiment or organisation can be substituted)
I read on this mb about folk singers telling the (paraphraseing) way it is, being the voice of the community etc.
Can such lyrics cause division within the music world or are they seen just for what they are songs?
