It began one day with a simple premise -
that what we were doing was right.
And men and women, and boys and girls,
good and bad,

And the dying continued
and continues today;
and the cause in which we believed,
whether right or wrong,
lost its meaning.

But we didn’t start the killing,
and if we stop, the killing will go on,
and continue until everyone,
good and bad,

It is regrettable, and sad,
But dying is what we do best
and war seems to be
the ultimate answer
to mankind’s quest.
