All for Pride, Money, and Education

Everyone shipped off
All for pride, money, and education
Men left their new young brides
Left their unborn children
Left their aging mothers

They left for their pride, money, and education
Not even with a glance back
And some won't come back
Suicide bombs, bullet wounds, and lost at war

Some new young bride won't get that honeymoon
That unborn child will never meet her father
The aging mother will live to bury her son

If leaving was all for the pride, money, and education
What's the point if you don't come back
What's the use of that free college education,
If you don't get to test it out
What's the use of that pay check,
If you don't live to spend it
What's the use of that pride,
When that pride is what led you to your death in the first place
