the blood of many
turns waters red
soldier's dreams gone and dead
heaven help ones left behind
sorrow and pain all they can find

why do humans create war and strife
when all it does is lose many lives?
I can't understand what people think
when they bring these kind of terrible things
do they not learn from the times gone past?
from the screams and whispers of those long dead?

from the soldiers lips to our ears
stories are told that could bring on fear
but we cannot hear them
from those already dead
we cannot see them
resting in their eternal beds

the lesson they tell is not heard by all
because of that I fear we will fall
