"New Beginnings" as written by Michael Andrew Bordin, Roddy Christopher Bottum, Charles Henry Iii Mosley, Jim B. Martin and Bill Gould....
A glow in her eye
As he waved goodbye
That's where it all began
She was a loving girl
He was a caring guy
Together they had plans
They were married and had a baby
His name was Johnnie

Wait a minute, that's me
Why am I only three years old again
Spinning and spinning and spinning

There was no gleam in your eye
When you passed us by
In the parade this time
You had nothing to say
And you're always on your way somewhere
But today you just stood still
You were a quiet kind of person
Who asked for nothing and got just that
So they sent you away to kill for your country

Could you blame him
Could you blame them
No. And in the end
When we meet again we're friends
Will we ever learn that we are always God's children
And gods never made moral decisions
They made love

    General Comment"War - brought to you today by lovers of freedom everywhere."

    This is lyrically IMO the best Mosley - era FNM song - I don't know if Chuck wrote the lyrics, but they're brilliant. Talks about war and how not doing if you don't give yourself a voice you will basically be another casualty of Uncle Sam. Has a more political meaning and social commentary than most FNM songs, and also talks about how the children are affected by war and also how the aftermath affects the actual military soldiers in the war if they survive. Brilliant.

    "God never made moral decisions, God made love." - My favorite line.
