Casualties of War

Verse 1:

Politicians flex with all their might

But won’t pick up a gun and get down and fight

Passin’ billions to spend on war supplies

When the inner city gangs still grow and thrive

What are we fighting for?

What are we fighting?

 

Chorus:

Another life gone,casualty of war

What are we dying for?

Kids enlist cuz there’s no hope at home

And the killing goes on…

Verse 2:

Thousands wounded in hospital beds

Return home just like they said

Families strugglin’ to put food on the table

Now their soldiers are only half able

What are we fighting for?

What are we fighting?

Chorus:

Another life gone, casualty of war

What are we dying for?

Kids enlist cuz there’s no hope at home

And the killing goes on

Verse 3 (invert)

What about all the innocent who died

Motherless children walk the streets and cry

Did we ever really try to negotiate?

Can we lay down our arms and communicate?

What are we fighting for?

What are we fighting?

Chorus:

Another life gone, casualty of war

What are we dying for?

Kids enlist cuz there’s no hope at home

And the killing goes on (twice)

What are we fighting for?

And the killing goes on….
