Silence of Arms
Do you hear yourself?
Your wicked cries to arms
Do fall upon my ears
You trap the young and foolish,
With visions of glory
This crusade must be put to a stop
Enough have fallen
I can no longer stand aside and watch this go on
What are we fighting for?
I fail to see the progress
We have done all we can
It is time you lay down your sword
And let the weary soldiers run free
How many more must fall for your ideals
It is time to lie down the rains
Must we right every wrong?
Your nose so deep in others affairs
You have failed to see the wars fought on your own shores
We have done all we can; it is time to step aside
Now we must let the memories of planes and trains rest
So we can move on
And fight our own wars
So silence your call to arms
And let the young and foolish come home
