Song Description

This song is about gief and loss and war, and the sense of disbelief that comes with losing a friend in war time. It mixes images of childhood playing hidea and seek in America with images of children in Iraq planting bombs.

Story Behind the Song

Capt. Douglas DiCenzo was killed by a roadside bomb on a mission in Baghdad in 2006. This is a song by a lifelong friend trying to cope with the private grief and tragic implications of the current war.

Lyrics

The television a one trick pony
The same routine of talking heads
I know you?d tell me, I should get some sleep
I just can?t remember where I put my bed

So tonight across the ocean
Kids are planting roadside bombs
Hungry kids, so brave and scared
Fed on hate they grow strong

The morning paper has forgotten
How to make the boats we sailed as kids
It?s hard to believe you?re not playing hide and seek
You were always so much better than me

So tonight across New England
Mothers throw plates against the wall
The pieces shatter and crumble to the floor
It doesn?t make them feel better at all
