Song Description

In essence an introspective anti-war anthem which calls out irresponsible political leadership, as well as paying tribute to those left behind when a loved one is lost in war.

Story Behind the Song

Inspired after watching friends go of to war and the uncertainty if I'd ever see them again.

Lyrics

You lit the fuse then you turned around
Running for glory from higher ground
With a smile doing as you please
To skew the world by a few degrees

Holding back their swollen pride
But they keep the hate inside
It's a gun in an innocent hand
The baby boy playing the man

You say, you understand this more than I do
Comprehend this more than I do
So please explain to me
Why they are my enemy
You understand this more than I do
Comprehend this more than I do
So please explain to me
Why I am your enemy

And when your back is to the wall
When you live and give it all
The little girl fallen in her yard
Her father dealt the hardest card

You drop the bombs and start the war
Push the boys and ask for more
It's the blood on some distant sand
Turns to black beneath the caravan

You say, you understand this more than I do
Comprehend this more than I do
So please explain to me
Why I am your enemy
