How many people, how many have died?
I'm feeling lucky and afraid at the same time
How many times have you sat home and wondered why?
We always hear about the U.S.A. but not the other side
In fields of agony everybody dies
How many humans, how many does it take?
We get a cedar box they get a body rake
How many lives does it take before we can end this war?
Bring Johnny home soon he forgot what the fuck they
were fighting for...In fields of agony
I don't want to die or be sent home on a cargo plane
A tag on my toe without my name because I'm one of a million
A million
How many weapons, how many do we need?
What about the economy, what about the economy?
You'll be the hero at the end of your catastrophe
It can't be stopped with unity with collaboration of
you and me...and human dignity...in fields of agony...

    General CommentHow come no one has commented on this song. This song is great. It rerally shows how worthless and pointless war is. It also asks "Why we hear about the USA and not the other side?" What about all the people that the US of A kill. They all have families too, but all we care about is the usa. We as a nation need to start looking at how our actions affect other peoples of differnet races more. This song shows the horrors of war-"One of a million."
