Is any War needed is any Death right?
What is the price we pay to sleep safe at night?
Is any War good, just... or even true?
Who pays for our freedom I'm just asking you.
Was it my buddy on patrol with me that day?
Was it my Uncle who is long gone away?
Was it my old playmate, who is still not quite right?
Was it my husband my wife asks that wakes up screaming at night?
Was it the guy down the street, or that lady leaning on the wall?
They keep drinking to forget but they remember it all.
Was it the tin can walkers or the ones on the ground?
Was it the man in the plane dropping bombs upon towns?
I am just asking... though it's not fair to you,
please if you know, can you just tell me who.
Who paid for this freedom for me to openly say?
This War is unjust and should be stopped today.
