lyrics

SOLDIERS HATE WAR
Katie Dowell / Rebekah Layton / A.J. Merrifield / Gary Nicholson

You wanna protest raise up some unrest
You say it shouldn't even be our fight
you want world peace you want the fire to cease
You say might is never gonna make right
Till you find a way to bring it to an end
stand behind the troops or get in front of them

Soldiers hate war more than anyone
They're the ones facing enemy guns
They want some good news in Washington
But it ain't good till its done
Soldiers hate war more than anyone

You think you got the cure make love not war
But there' ain't nobody shooting at you
You sit and complain and try to lay blame
While you watch it on the six o'clock news
It's the home of the brave and the land of the free
Cause there's lives on the line for you and me

Soldiers hate war more than anyone
They're the ones facing enemy guns
They want some good news in Washington
But it ain't good till its done
Soldiers hate war more than anyone

It's the home of the brave and the land of the free
Cause there's soldiers on the front lines just like me
