Lyrics

Cost of War

the cost of war
can't be figured in dollars
the cost of war
can't be fathomed with sense
the cost of war
cannot be paid forward
for every generation
it leaves only debt

the cost of war
you can find it in wards
of VA hospitals
trying to get home

the cost of war
is counted in families
mothers and fathers
who will never come home

the cost of war
isn't honor or duty
these things thrive
in the people who fight
the cost of war
isn't in the proving
of what is fair
or what is right

the cost of war
is starving in doorways
at the edges of cities
strewn with rubble and blood

the cost of war
if it could be counted
would make us stop fighting
and surrender our guns

the cost of war
the cost of war
the cost of war what are we fighting for?
the cost of war what are we fighting for?
