How long can we hide, behind thievery and theft?
How long can we turn away from the dead and the left?
How long can we close our eyes and pretend ‘tis a dream?
How long before we let it out and scream?
I’m talking of mankind! You and I!
Leaving warriors and soldiers to die!
Have we no worth for the human heart?
Have we a taste for a work of art?
We will protect one man! But at what cost?
The battles the people, the men we have lost?
Sons, fathers, men alike!
Join the war, the hate, the fight!
We yell in support! Go on and make us proud!
After the war, there is no sound.
Why war? How long can we hide?
How long can we shy away from the people that died?
We cannot, only face the theft,
The lives we have taken, from the people we left.
When someone dies....
....A new life begins
