lyrics

INTRO
I left my home behind, for a foreign land
Sent to fight for freedom
Or at least that's what I was lead to believe

PRE VERSE
What is the price?
Of our far flung meddling
What is the price?
Of the pain we’ve created

VERSE
What kind of name have we made for ourselves
Lighting the sky with white phosphorus shells
The divide between our people will last for centuries to come
Will our leaders never see what the hell that we’ve done

PRE CHORUS
Eight long years
Of fighting Ghosts
Eight long years
Of lost hope

CHORUS
Thousands of soldiers have gave their lives
So hundreds thousands more could meet their demise
Indiscriminate killing of civilian souls
Under the pretense of securing their homes

VERSE 2
What kind of name have we made for ourselves
Lighting the sky with white phosphorus shells
The divide between our people will last for centuries to come
Will our leaders never see what the hell that we’ve done
The most tragic effect of this war we went and made
Is the frailty that we recklessly spawned
The collapse of the nations
The displacement of the people
Given birth to a new kind of evil
