lyrics

There’s a little boy, who dreams of going to war
He’s got soldier toys - plays on his bedroom floor

Why – Do we let this happen?
He’s only just a kid
They point - Hey we want you man
He dies at only age eighteen

Daddy’s hero
Picture paints of a thousand wars
Mama opens up the door
To Soldier men of war
Sissy turns and runs away
Cuts into her deep dark wounds
Why do we let this go?
For political wars

There’s a little lie - Hides behind the guise
Taking soldier lives - All for political stride

Why – Do we let this happen?
He’s only just a kid
They point - Hey we want you man
He dies at only age eighteen

Daddy’s hero
Picture paints of a thousand wars
Mama falls down on the floor
Her baby’s dead and gone
Sissy drinks her misery
Takes a pill so she can leave
Why do we let this go
For political wars

Daddy’s hero
Picture paints of a bloody scene
Mama opens up her drawer
To tarnished metals from the war
Sissy cleans his messy room
Throws away his soldier toys
Why do we let this go?
For political wars
