Night turns into day Day turns into night Sparkles light the sky Bombs drop down Buildings collapse Streets fill with broken glass Lost your father Lost your mother Lost your sister Lost your brother Lost your son Lost your daughter There’s a price to pay Night turns into day Leaves fall Rain drops Sun shine Night frost Why do we live Why do we die Why do we love Why do we hate Why do we sing Why do we create Ask these questions What is love Love is unconditional The soldier has his gun He shoots the sun Blots out the light The soldier is scared He aims for their eyes Troops advance the lies Hate is everywhere Love is rare Love can’t be seen Love’s the invisible enemy Love can’t be heard Love has no place Love isn’t there It can’t be traced Love’s not a word It can’t be said The soldier shoots a round The bullet ricochets One side loses 23 The other 16 A truce is brokered No one wins The fight goes on The cycle never ends Who won Who lost What’s gained What was sacrificed The soldier thrusts his knife Swings his arms to save his life Who sinned Who lived The war has to end The war’s inside our heads Love is unconditional The leaders say This is why we have to pay They set the terms And the price They buy the guns And fund the caskets They can’t be wrong In our eyes That’s how we live That’s how we die We never ask why We never cry Lost your father Lost your mother Lost your sister Lost your brother Lost your son Lost your daughter That’s how life begins and ends So simple yet so complex The soldier isn’t paid To ask if he’s being played He’s paid to kill He’s paid for the blood spill But he was once a child Like all of us He didn’t know what violence was He looked up for solace He was held and loved He was cared for He was scared and fearful He ran from the unknown He was protected and warm Safe from harm Needed human touch Needed reassurance That was so long ago He watched the days go by The ebb and flow He grew into a man and saw the show There was no one and nothing left He lost the trust and warmth Picked up a gun for solace Shot it into the sun This is how love goes It’s a flower growing from concrete Like a weed that must be killed Love is unconditional Love can’t be controlled Love can’t be owned Can’t be paid Can’t be owed Can’t be bought Can’t be sold That violence in the street That’s not love Love is unconditional Wake up from your spell Love is unconditional No god No signs No life No death No words No lies No sea No tide No divide No gun No sun No death No breath No king No pawn No right No wrong No house No home No together No alone No freedom No limit No hunger No food No war No peace Why do we live Why do we die Love is unconditional Wake up from your spell Love is unconditional Lyrics by Josh Haden © 2023
