Tear Drop

When good men go to war 
And the blue sky of paradise  
Turns grey with looming fright  

When politics ask good men to pick up arms
And they say it is for good reason, honest
This is a fight for our way of life

Our freedom, this is for justice 
For our right our honour 
Our democracy, right to bare arms 

When mothers hug their sons 
And send them off to the battle fields
Fearing the dreaded uniformed knock

We lost one, to the rose cottage 
Less one from deploring parade 
One less on the journey home, empty seats 

When good men go to war 
And death becomes of innocence 
Expect not the same man, to come back home
