This tune was written during the Gulf War but is incredibly relevant today in light of the Bush Administrations "War on Terrorism" and occupation of Iraq. It's upbeat Acoustic Rock.

Story behind the song
War protest song from the gulf war....suddenly made relevant again by G.W. Bush.
Lyrics
What am I to believe Of what I've seen on my T.V. Of all the killing going on Somewhere halfway round the world. They speak of cold deciet And of the death put on the breeze By the man we sold the weapons to He kills with such great ease And I find it all to easy To point a finger, take a stand It's not my fault it was their job To liberate that foreign land But looking at the photographs Of mothers fallen down While mourning over infants Buried deep in bloody ground I feel I failed humanity I never raised my voice I sat comfortably inside my home I never made a choice To tell the world they're people Moms and Dads with boys and girls But Hey, What could I have done I'm only one man and I'm halfway round the world As we celebrate our soldiers Coming home from months in sand They're wearing shiny white dress gloves To hide those blood stained hands And though they say we've won that war A skeptic I'll remain To shed anothers blood for oil Is to bring us all to shame And thier ad campaigns were oh so slick They filled us with our pride Americans are lucky Cause we were on the winning side But looking at the photographs Of mothers fallen down While mourning over infants Buried deep in bloody ground I feel I failed humanity I never raised my voice I sat comfortably inside my home I never made a choice To tell the world they're people Moms and Dads with boys and girls But Hey, What could I have done I'm only one man and I'm halfway round the world
