Anti-War acoustic moving Ballad..:
Young farmer was called up for service. When he got back from Iraq, he had lost his sight in a land mine explosion..
Honey, the firestorm took my eyes
The night took my days
I can hear the smile that lights your voice
I so want to see your face
Honey, I want to see your face

Thought that it was right that I should take the call
Though I never really wanted to..
Thought that I was doing it for freedom
I thought I was doing it for you..
Honey, I was doing it for you.

And I, in my mind,
see you run across the field to me -at evening time
A sunset silhouette against a yellow sky
I see the our children dancing in your eyes..

Couldn't really see until the light went out
That we were just discards, out of mind
Of the one eyed jack who would be king
In the kingdom of the blind,
In the kingdom of the blind…

And I, in my mind,
see you run across the field to me -at evening time
A sunset silhouette against a yellow sky
I see the our children dancing in your eyes..
