This song is about Cindy Sheehan's campaign to hold George W. Bush accountable for the death of her son in Iraq..

"The anti-war movement in the U.S. is growing, and Cindy Sheehan has provided it with a human voice- a voice that I thought needed to be heard in song.."

Song for Cindy Sheehan
When Casey came home from the war
In a body bag, he was twenty-four-
His mother earned the right to ask why
Young Casey Sheehan had to die

When you didn't find your WMDs
When you didn't bring freedom or democracy
When you didn't find your terrorists
What was the reason for all this?

The greatest hero in any war
Is the one who stands up and says: – No MORE – ?
Casey Sheehan didn't die for nothing...
Nero fiddles and Baghdad burns
If there's a lesson we can learn
Then Casey Sheehan didn't die for nothing.


Did he die to have blood spilled in his name
So you could play your imperialistic games?
Did he die so more would follow him
Into a fight you cannot win?

Did he die so you could perpetuate
Your reign of fear that fosters hate?
Did he die for you, you son of a bitch?
Did he die to keep your rich friends rich?

The greatest hero in any war
Is the one who stands up and says: – No MORE – ?
Casey Sheehan didn't die for nothing...

Nero fiddles and Baghdad burns
If there's a lesson we can learn
Then Casey Sheehan didn't die for nothing..


The only way to justify
The senseless way that Casey died
Is if we come to realize
that your gang of thugs told a pack of lies..

If there's some meaning to his death
A reason he wasted his last breath
It would be if we could finally say
No more Casey's will die that way

The greatest hero in any war
Is the one who stands up and says: No MORE ?
Casey Sheehan didn't die for nothing...
Nero fiddles and Baghdad burns
If there's a lesson we can learn
Then Casey Sheehan didn't die for nothing,

Then Casey Sheehan didn't die for nothing!.
