Jennifer lost the war today you'll find her burnt and raped

Through it all she must have wondered "what have I done? "

But nobody really cares today the world's a busy place

Guess she really must've seen now

Really seen now

I guess we're all just soldiers

She was only 6 years old

Left to die by strangers

And if we're all just soldiers is it so wrong to be afraid?

Jennifer lost the war

Phoebe lost the war today there must be some mistake

They say it all the time and they said it then

Little miss 15 56 her soul remains ungraved

She must have really seen now

Really seen now

Morality won't help her

All her sorrows left her

But will the morning headlines even say that it's a shame

What are we headin' for

Jennifer lost the war



Seen it all before

Started on the ground then it walked away

And I wonder how many more everybody take it like there's nothin' to say

Jennifer lost lost lost lost the war



I guess we're all just soldiers

She was only 6 years old

Left to die by strangers

And will the morning headlines even say that it's a shame

What are we headin' for
