===Revenge Not Relief===

Dark and stormy when the fog rolls in
And the men in masks begin to grin
The room falls silent as a letter arrives
His family watches and hopes he survives
Staggering forward, his vision fades
His eyes swell up, but he continues to gaze
His foot advances, he takes his first step
A war’s ahead, the mood is set

(chorus)
And when the smoke finally clears
Is the battle truly won?
Or is war just a decoy?
A distraction while we run

Fear strikes him like a bird of prey
The sunny skies turn to grey
Soldiers marching through the rain
Firing guns and rattling chains
Soldiers’ faces as they sit and wait
An enemy bullet deciding their fate
A searing pain as he hits the ground
And he knows he’s fired his final round

(chorus)
And when the smoke finally clears
Is the battle truly won?
Or is war just a decoy?
A distraction while we run

(guitar solo)

A blood stained flower, a drop of rain
A four year battle and it’s all that remains
A letter, a family and the tear that’s shed
As they watch the water turn to red
Buried with honour, remembrance and pride
A Victorian cross lay cold at his side
But he knows that it’s worth it, these things that he’s done
A battle, a war, and freedom were won

(extended chorus)
And when the smoke finally clears
Is the battle truly won?
Or is war just a decoy?
A distraction while we run
But we all go down together
And the blame still falls on greed
As war draws us away
From the things we really need

thanks smile.gif this idea came to me because my grandpa died in the war, so i thought to myself 'whats even the point of war? its just an arguement where millions of people die. why not just make it an arguement and spare the lives' so i wrote this.
