Name of Song: Morals of War

I bordered this plane,
We all sorta felt the same,
Spiritually I felt so bare,
So I murmured my childhood prayer.

My past began pressing me hard,
Will it weaken my inner guard?,
My death then flashed right by,
But I was told to always try.

Rising above the fear,
As I felt a lonely tear,
I’m a soldier, forever proud,
Never stray from what we vowed.

Chorus
I can’t be blamed for acts of war,
But still a cloak for what I saw,
Threats of death make right and wrong
and what we did, above the law.

Morals of war,
What seems right; who really for?
Thoughts of kill or be killed,
Went to boot camp to learn those skills.

My own conscience was in the fight,
It’s all so personal what was right,
Reconciling now at home,
Keeping separate the war syndrome.

Life at home is not at war,
Even though I wait for more,
Repeating flashbacks in my head,
Feels much worse than what they said.

Chorus
I can’t be blamed for acts of war,
But still a cloak for what I saw,
Threats of death make right and wrong
and what we did, above the law.

Bridge
Suspended moods of death,
Waiting quietly with every breath,
Do I act upon my zeal,
Or is it something I just feel.
Moods that linger from all that war,
Scarred all over my very core,
I need something to calm the urge,
Fears of drowning inside that surge,
Of those memories that come from war
That seem to stay forever more.
