lyrics

What are you crying for?
You got a couple visits to the beach before the war,
and that's more than some people get,
a chance for peace with no regret,
fool to think that it could last -

What are you crying for?
As if your tears of urgency can stop the war,
Your sentimental mind has you convinced you're kind,
fool to think you might not kill,
if someone nearby wanted your blood spilled -

But oh, how my heart grows wild,
when I remember that poor child,
He was one of ours,
by that I mean an innocent whom the machine devours,

What did you think?
That I meant all those awful borders drawn in blood and ink?
Fools to think it's worth the blood of children.

They do it out of fear, not love,
They say it's love commanded from above,
it isn't love - it's fear.
Stop crying now, and dry your tears,
what are you complaining for?
Hey, you survived another day.
