"Letters Home from the Garden of Stone" as written by Keith Ciancia and Erik Schrody....
Sittin' restless under the moonlight
I know I'm getting ready to kill
They say we're going in with the day light
I don't want to but I will

Cause I won't know the man that kills me
And I don't know these men I kill
I thank God for my salvation
Wash away the blood I spill

I try not to think about my family
Cause it's a little too much to take
Out here I got me and I got my buddy
We can't afford even one mistake

I started writing on dirty card boards,
It's the only paper I could find
Tell everyone I got their letters,
Tell everyone I'm doing fine

Late at night when I can dream I,
I think about life back in the world

I miss you and dad, I miss sister Sarah
I miss my wife and my baby girl

Pray for me, pray for my soul Ma
Pray for me and all my sins

They say I got a job to do now
I'll be back when it finally ends

Do you think I should be fighting?
Ma, are you proud are you ashamed?

Really I'm trying to do the right thing
I hope my Government can say the same thing

Cause I won't know the man that kills me
And I don't know these men I kill
We all wind upon the same side
Cause ain't none of us doin' God's Will
