Casey Stratton – The Waiting lyrics

War for a paycheck is fought
Troops engaged for a pointless cause
Oil money covered in blood
Lies we believed like a god

Families, ripped at the seams
Losing all, for nothing
Mothers, with babies

When darkness falls all is still
Terrified innocents wait for the sound
Of bombs to disrupt what was once
A beautiful land in the sun

Can we ever forget?
Can we ever move on?
Too many children are gone
Too many lives stolen
