Description
Sat down one mornin' at my Keyboard...(which I aint very good at by the way) and started to play a somber tune... dark, or in the "minor" if you will...

This is for all the Fathers and Mothers... Brothers and Sisters... the poor and the innocent... who have died and continue to die because of George W. Bush and his war with Iraq.

Lyrics
Forgive me father...for I have sinned...I just want to go home.... only a child...fight in the name of "freedom"...

Moving my fickled fingered friend! That was a deep tune! LOved the piano parts and the voice! I felt like I was there with those cats fighting this ridiculous war for this fuckin idiot! I just can't believe what a state America is in right now? It's sad!

Great work
This is indeed touching ronnie.

You did good choices when arranging this piece, and created a mood very suited to the theme of the song.

Amen

Excellent
Really well done, superlative! The distortion on the voice makes it sound disembodied, but that somehow seems appropriate. The pacing of the speaking reminded me of the voiceovers in "Apocalypse Now"...and the piano is really well matched to the concept.

We live in Interesting Times
Too interesting.
Very well done here and using a musical bed that I didn't expect. I
enjoyed the production too - it gets the point across without being
distracting.

Good Work
Nice sentiment. The war is forgotten but not gone. It has become just
like Viet Nam just part of the daily news that everyone now takes for
granted! The "shock and disgust" light show has now dimmed as the
grim reality that war always is has begun to shine through the vast
obstacle of major news media propoganda and the innocent/ignorant
minds of the majority. Let's bring all the troops home from everywhere
and spend all of those billions on alternative energy, cleaning up the
environment and taking care of our people. Seems like a small thing to
ask as it benefits everyone but the 5% who own 95% of the wealth in
this country.

Very powerful
I like how simple this is. There's nowhere in this song for anything to
hide. It is stark and very sad. I thought that if you doubled your voice with
an actual child's voice during that lyric it might have been cool.

This song is soundtrack worthy.

By the way, the intro sample of the machine guns, helicopter and man
shouting sound a lot like the opener of "One" by Metallica. I thought I
even heard Hetfield barking "move, move, move".

Did I hear right or is this another sample?

Wicked.
Ronnie:

You don't have to be good at an instrument to coax the magic out of it.
This is one gripping, well paced track. I'd hate to hear what it would
sound like if you were actually "good" at the piano. Awesome processing
on the voices. I thought the track was over then Bushie came back in like
a recurring nightmare. Whew. I might not sleep tonight.

Not the run of the mill
RL tune. But man- this is really, really good. The simple piano line adds to
the drama of the spoken word. Excellent work... let's bring the troops
home soon.

Dramatic
Very powerful and moving. Excellent sonic palette -- muted yet really
seething with emotion. Exactly right. Perfect. Great.

Metallica rocks
Hearing the opening battle sounds...It instinctively got me singing the
opening notes of One lol.

Nice track, though. Definitely a sad vibe to it, and nice touch at the end
with Bush's voice: very creepy and evil-sounding.
