Twisted minds that work as one
They plot your destiny
You stand and watch your only son
Deprived of dignity
Contempt and hatred all you feel
Devoted loyalty
A wound you know will never heal
Doubting integrity

You sent him out to pay the price
Did what you thought was best
You sent him out to be a man
Almost laid to rest
Unseen powers that deal the cards
Faceless homicide
A bitter rage you can't reveal
Because of stupid pride

What you want ain't always good for you
It's just the way the balance swings for you
Balance swings for you

Have no conscience, feel no pain
All you need's a flag
No glory now, the switch is made
Uniform to body bag
But after all, did you see the truth?
Find the real war?
What you want ain't always good for you
No cause worth dying for
What you want
