This killing room

They were our vision
And we were theirs
As stoically resigned
They crouched and stared

Search and Destroy
Contempt for tears
Endless boredom
Stark shear fear

Different cultures
Collision course
Used a best
And valuable resource

Focus back in
And on to a time
Right or wrong
Indifference climbed

Onto the backs
Of young men's shoulders
Who carried the weight
Of being soldiers

Who were leaders
Who followed whom
Come back in
To this killing room

Live here now
Believe again
You are important
To lovers brothers

And friends
