To my brothers-in-arms who served in ‘Nam.

Re-Visions of War
AABA
Was it the bullets
Was it the bombings
How ‘bout the bodies
The blood in 3D
The jarring explosions
And the scars we don’t see

What was forever
What was forgotten
Each day a treasure
But none without strife
For those who have lived
And those in the next life

Bridge:
Back in the world in the land of the free
We fight in our nightmares of PTSD
They drip down in dribbles into our dreams
Build to crescendo in silence and screams
After these dark dreams of war without ends
We awaken in anguish, seeking amends

Why do we hide it
Why do we abide
When we revisit
Re-visions of war
Traumatic tattoos
On our hearts we abhor

Coda:
Why do we hide it
Why do we abide
When we revisit
Re-visions of war
Dramatic abuse
From the days we pay for
