So much for glory, so much for freedom

The soldiers lie weary and tired

Walk between bodies

As people sitting far away

First, glorified and admired

Then opponents attacked, bombs were dropped

Hospitals, schools became a pile of rumble

Trees fell down, wires were chopped

The sound of sirens ring in their ears

The deafening silence surrounds

The flying jets roar in the sky

As hearts are poked with spears

Innocent civillians suffer

But what good came of it?

Only leaders are praised, as earth gets damaged

And livelihoods become rougher

Time passes, horrific memories remain

At night they return, meddle with dreams

The war ends, the damge remains

So much for glory, so much for freedom
