Lie to Me

 

Lie to Me-

When all is said and done,

After we've shipped off our dead brothers

Back to the land of freedom,

Far away from this war-torn country.

 

Lie to Me-

Help me to sleep through the night,

After the blood has dried on my hands,

After a village has burned to the ground,

And a hundred lives have been shattered.

 

Lie to Me-

Tell me life will be the same.

That we'll be worshiped  as heroes,

Carried on civilian's shoulders like gods,

Praised for our honor in battle.

 

Lie to me-

For the truth is too hard to bare.

 

 

-end-
