"Cake Parade" as written by John Davis and Laura Burhenn....
The sun is up, looks like a perfect day
to put our soldiers on a cake parade

We can line them up and march them down the hall where they can play at guns
and we don't have to look at all

Another sailor sleeping well today
Another mother misses her lonely son's birthday
His bed is empty, not sure where he'd gone
with his all stars and nirvana t-shirt on

And if we try to raise their memory
You know it makes no difference
They'll send our boys for boot camp fun
And teach them to be men

If the sun could shine
on us always we'd go blind
But for all the rain in sight,
you know I wouldn't mind

The sun is gone, looks like a perfect day
to put our soldiers in an early grave
We can line them up and lay them on the lawn
with all their purple hearts and badges of courage on

And if we try to raise their memory,
you know it's only second best
to all the boys who never will,
who never will be men

If the sun could shine
on us always we'd go blind
But for all the rain in sight,
you know I wouldn't mind

If the sun could shine
on us always we'd be fine
And just to see him one more time,
you know I wouldn't mind

We'll send you hands of shining stars
So you can fill your pretty globe
and navigate the seashell graves
and safely find your way home
