You’ve lived your life thinking that every war mattered
Wars that we ‘won’ and that one where America got battered
But not before we left verdant Vietnam all torn and tattered
Now what will you do since that the illusion’s been shattered
Propagandists exposed, let’s show them door
Refuse to believe their phony words anymore
Realize that there’s never, ever been a just war
There’s only politicians lyin’ about what war is for
while those doin’ most of the dyin’ are the abject poor
Remember these things on each armed forces, memorial, or veteran’s day
With flags flying high and color guards on display
Jesus said with peace comes bliss therefore we must pray
that soon when all desire for war has died away.
May it be so.
