Verse I:
Dressed head to toe
In fatigues of every shade
Like the bristles of a broken broom
Sent in to sweep up the mess we've made
Our helmets keep our skulls from cracking
But what about our minds
Rugs woven of the fabric of war
Let us tread upon the soiled surface of our times
But the time bomb keeps on ticking

chorus:
well every heart beats true
for the red black and blue
for the bleeding and bruised
and yes us this includes
but i won't hide behind the stripes of a blood-stained flag

Verse II:
The war has been waged
(A cultures been raped)
The cause has been justified
Standards democratically chosen
By which all of our worlds people should abide
And accounts grow
(With death tolls)
The business of war or the war of business
The lives and the soles of oh so many
Sold in someones personal interest

Bridge:
this carnage is a sickness
infecting the immunity of unity
how is violence the antidote
to save lives, to end woes
before fingers meet foreheads
before we salute, before we obey
it's our mission to shed light on who's manifested this war and for what gain
cause someplace somewhere there's a profit to be made
