MISSPOKEN WORD

The war was started by one misspoken word
So they started to march the soldier sons
What was said was not proper heard
Down they fell, soldier sons, one by one
For foolish pride, I’ll not stand aside
So they started to march the soldier sons
Only by my rules, the world will abide
Down they fell, soldier sons, one by one
Money, power and pride must guild the way
So they started to march the soldier sons
The common man, the child, the family the ones to pay
Down they fell, soldier sons, one by one
Forget the misspoken word, put away foolish pride
So they started to march the soldier sons
Why for such foolish things must our sons and daughters die
Down they fell, soldier sons, one by one
