What is this that makes a boy
Grow up, become a man
Fully dressed in his uniform
Forced to carry a gun in his hand?

What is this hatred
That makes men want to kill
The men on the other side
And forget God's will?

What is this bloodshed
That brings a man to his death
Makes him give in to the pain
And take his very last breath?

What is all this bickering
Trying to place the blame
On other countries for the deaths
Though they surrendered in shame?

What was this that makes everyone weep
Over the deaths of loved ones
Made some women lose it all;
Husbands, friends, and sons?

What was this nightmare
That makes all pray for no more?
It could be nothing else
This was the war!
