The raging demon of war
Never smothered just hidden

Lives taken in its actions
Families torn apart, souls traumatized

On our backs we lay, victim to false hope
Lied to everyday about what happens outside our homes

The false peace stands
A symbol of lies

Blood stained uniforms
But the memories of brutal deaths still remain

Fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, friends
All dead, fighting for a bloodthirsty demon

The minds of soldiers broken
Trauma haunting their dreams

Have they gone insane fighting for this demon
Or have their minds been tortured to death?
