Description
Have had war and conflict on the brain lately. Always struck by the oxymoron in "civil war." Thanks for stopping through, and all thoughts always welcome. I pledge many thanks to the MacJams community, I have certainly received more than I can ever repay from folks on here. Eternal thanks.

Lyrics
Bullets flying
Another soldier on the run, run, run
Children crying
Mommy can you give me more, more, more?

I've seen war drag me down
It's not just me, everybody feels it
When's it gonna stop?

I don't know what the war is for
But I sure don't want some more
If you knew what the war was for,
Only you would know the score


All of this fighting is grinding me down
It takes more than writing to kill a crown
When fear was overwhelming, revolution came
Everyone surrounded by dead for the claim

I know you like I knew your father
You know me well, but you do not bother
To pick me from the ground…

I don't know what the war is for
But I sure don't want some more
If you knew what the war was for,
Only you would know the score
Only you would know the score

I sure as h*ll
don't know the score. And I can't figure out what's so civil about it either. I haven't heard an anti-war song in ages; good one, thanks.

You're so right, felt good to say. You're right I wish there were more on the mainstream airwaves for sure. Many thanks for the listen.

So moving my man. I can only feel this piece for I have never experienced this kind of war. I am moved by the soulful and melodic tears of lyrical mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and on and on notes played by a master storyteller. I am humbled by your humanity and ability to convey emotions of Peace! Great Awakening!

A SincerelyZipped, TvRicky
