HOMELAND TO PROTECT
(Cindy Sheehan Song)

Camped out by the roadside, a mother and her tears
Angry at a nation, angry at the career
Her son had chosen military, volunteered
Paid for his patriotism, paid until his life was taken

Cindy hold your soldier’s hand
Cindy hold the president, to blame
For all of the terrorists
We all know where you’re coming from
We can hold your hand, but we’ll load the guns
‘Cause we’ve got a homeland to protect

Protest and publicity, newspaper philosophies
Take the polls on Fox TV, but many mothers disagree
‘Cause you can’t believe when love’s defiled, by a martyr’s twisted suicide
Could be what any God desires, it just an act of genocide

Cindy hold your soldier’s hand
Cindy hold the president, to blame
For all of the terrorists
We all know where you’re coming from
We can hold your hand, but we’ll load the guns
‘Cause we’ve got a homeland to protect

The Torah, the Bible, and Koran, story as old as Abraham
Hagar’s child by Sarah’s hand, split the nations of a holy land
In the time it takes to sing this song, another’s died, a baby’s born
I wish to God we could stay at home, but I know we’ve got to fight this war

Cindy hold your soldier’s hand
Cindy hold the president, to blame
For all of the terrorists
We all know where you’re coming from
We can hold your hand, but we’ll load the guns
‘Cause we’ve got a homeland to protect

Cindy, we all know where you’re coming from
But the president, he ain’t the one
No, he’s got a homeland to protect
Yes, we’ve got a homeland to protect…
