Humanity

 

Verse 1:

She cries herself to sleep, hoping to find him like a lucid dream
Maybe he’ll come rushing back, to the cold blankets left for him
She’ll keep the candle’s pleading fire next to the picture of the kids
To light his way from the war, through those rusted desert winds

Verse 2:

Daybreak is missing the scent of coffee and the ambience of the news
She is missing those “
Good Morning Dears” that she would always muse
Still learning to smile when asked “
Did Daddy come home last night?
She is battling with the anguish again, Only to quickly lose that fight

PreChorus:

They have convinced him, at all costs, he fights for the common good of humanity
She is starting to wonder “
but whats been lost, whats the cost, to the humanity in me?

Chorus:

(But for the humanity of it all)
He would die for a stranger’s life but will not live for his own family
He is a soldier sworn to that war machine “God, Profits and Country
(But for the humanity of it all)
They told him it was his duty, changing foreign “Hearts and Minds
While the only ones he has changed are the ones he has left behind

Verse 3:

He promised to "defend" his country, Not police the world’s wrongs
He promised one little boy and girl that he wouldn’t stay gone long
Patiently she waits for his letters, fantasizing what they might say
Like “
This war is finally over" or “I am coming home to you today

PreChorus:

Instead he writes that, at all costs, he fights for the common good of humanity
She is starting to wonder “
but whats been lost, whats the cost, to the humanity in me?

Chorus Repeat:

Bridge:

His pride says he fights for our freedoms, to protect the peace back home
She can’t eat, kids can’t sleep, raising them alone, this peace is unknown


Chorus Repeat:
