Summary

The war in Iraq has seen thousands dead and for what? I don't believe sending thousands of young men and women to fight in these places will achieve anything positive. I believe these soldiers are only in this region of the world because of oil.

As another soldier dies

Do you even hear the cry?

 

 

Fighting for democracy you claim

Making policy in your Ivory tower

Playing chess with peoples lives

As the death toll rises by the hour

 

 

And how do you decide where democracy lies?

Why only in the middle-east?

Why Don’t the oppressed of Africa

Get invited to your "feast?"

 

 

To the cynic it would seem

Your vision starts on gasoline

For all your political rhetoric

It’s the gush of oil that makes you tick

 

 

And all the while the young men fight

Can they distinguish wrong from right?

Shot from gun, or blown apart

Just so your car will always start

 

As another soldier dies

Do you even hear the cry?
