lyrics

Every man and woman who has chosen to risk their life
In this endless conflict with no recompense for their strife
Will always live with the memory
Fighting a stress we cannot see
Dreaming for some small relief

Training cannot prevent trauma
We did this

Lining up the shots of booze, a clenched fist full of pills
Loading up a pistol, aiming for one final kill
Hopeless, can’t take it any more
Pointless, what are they fighting for?
Heartless, nearly one each day

Every day one more may give up
349 in one year

Consecrate the ground they lay you into
Speaking a prayer for everyone
They can’t comprehend all that you went through
Consoling themselves for what they’ve done

Knowing full well it is they who killed you
Knowing full well things will not change
Shedding their tears on television
Sleeping at night in deluded dreams

We should be ashamed of ourselves for failing those in need
Instead of waving flags, we should clog up every street
Our enemy now holds a pen and not a gun
Ordering our youth to fight a notion

Without support
Without a break
Without respect
Without a way to live again
