"We Are the Ones" as written by Bruce Willen and Nolen Aaron Strals....
We are the ones you tried to forget.
We are the ones you pray will forgive.
You can't say Love without blood in your mouth,
You can't say Hate without a smiling so big.

We are the ones with junkyard graves
And half our bodies half a world away.
You forgot the names but remember the date
And at your convenience, but without a face.

You shove us in front of the cameras and guns,
deflect and absorb the questions and bombs.
Magnetic emotions don't seem to hold
When what you have wrought finally comes home

You're not so brave and you're not so bold
When what you have wrought finally comes home.
We are the ones you tried to forget.
We are the ones you pray will forgive.

Like broken superheroes with a flag for a cape,
The ashes of the dead a mask for my face.
We hold our loved ones with muscles of dust
And say I love you with clay lungs.

We are the ones you tried to forget.
We are the ones you pray will forgive.
We are the ones you tried to forget.
We are the ones you pray will forgive.
