22 years

A nation in flames
That continue to burn
Convulsing eternally
Cause man will not learn
A generation of youths
That have not known peace
Prays for the death and the violence to cease
A nation that suffers
Such a horrible war
Might not recover
Might always be poor

The guns of the oppressors
Continue to roar
Millions are dead
But who’s keeping score?
22 years a long time to fight
When no one is safe in the day or the night

When there’s too many factions
They always will fight
Reaction and action
The wrong and the right
Cripple their country
What do they care?
They benefit from death
And pain and despair
A cesspool of evil
The worst of man
Everyone living
The best that they can

The guns of the oppressors
Continue to roar
Millions are dead
But who’s keeping score?
22 years a long time to fight
When no one is safe in the day or the night

A pirate, a terrorist
One and the same
When anarchy rules
Just who is to blame?
Oppressive rulers
That won’t let them free
Time to make their voices heard
With democracy

The guns of the oppressors
Continue to roar
Millions are dead
But who’s keeping score?
22 years a long time to fight
When no one is safe in the day or the night

22 years and more war
22 years of more war
22 years or more war
22 years then more war
22 years no more war
22 years…. before?
