You were called out to go fight in the war You didn't know what it was all about Yet you still went out the door. You took letters with you, Gifts that were handcrafted You wonder now how the sky can still be blue-- Here's to YOU the unwilling drafted. You were sent to kill an unseen foe And you were told to bravely go & fight for your land Yet you were still forced to go By the government's unseen hand. Your life has changed And there's now a hopelessness to your once stubborn jaw What you once thought has now been rearranged Because of the things you saw. The President lost His mind..when he said you were winning The country was war-tossed Even the saints were sinning. You came back with memories Of those living and those gone Of American embassies-- Of the independance that was won. You dreamed at night Of a familiar land far away You learned that being IN the fight Was a lot more than Westmoreland used to say. You missed the carefree days back home-- Mom's old-fashioned American dinner. You missed being able to freely roam And you still wonder: In War, who is the winner?
