Orphans Of War:
Music: Massimo Carola
Lyrics - Randal Dunkle

I'm going back, going back again, my friend
Back to Afghanastan
You see these orphans only get one meal a day
The widows try to help , but they, fade away
They fade away, they fade away.

When you look into those childrens eyes
It breaks your heart , sears your mind
That's where they go to waste away

They waste away , they waste, away, they waste away

Now that I've been baptized
I'm no longer one of those guys
I'm not the soldier that I used to be
For me this is a one way trip
I've got some plans for a garden yet
And maybe a drinking well or two

I need someone and you know the way
The widows try but they fade away
The widows try but they fade away,
They fade away
