A Song About War


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, my names Liam. Im new This is a song i wrote after i read an article about the afghan war.

Victory, has a heavy price.

Another body, in a bag

And a letter for a wife

and kid he'd never even have

I read your story just yesterday,

and i guess it made me sad

Struck down one by one,

by an enemy we never knew we had

It's the last place on earth you'd want blood in the dirt

But higher powers they say

To an alien land and as brothers you'll stand

But you'll all end up face down some day.

The petting zoo of death lies in a,

box on the ground

And in that box are your own blood and tears,

and a folded american flag

I saw the mourners weep

as I drove past the church,

I heard the coffin creek

but it was only bricks they nursed

It's the last place on earth you'd want blood in the dirt

But higher powers they say

To an alien land and as brothers you'll stand

But you'll all end up face down some day.

How can one life jusitfy, just to be on the winning side

How can one letter dignify, just to write he died with pride

How can there be a bright side, as we bicker and change like jeckyl and hyde

Met his match by the road side, no one cried for him world wide.

And It's the last place on earth you'd want blood in the dirt

But higher powers they say

To an alien land and as brothers you'll stand

But you'll all end up face down some day.
