Mass communication has shrunk the world but though we talk, we still don't understand.
Come on home soldier
It's time you return
From the sands painted red
This battle's for others
Your brothers fight on
Facing the foe in your stead

Your medals shine
But your heart is rust
Your faith was blind
Now you no longer trust
And though you hope that
Your time is done
You won’t lay down your gun
When they say the war is won
Another one…has begun
