After the Third World War

Lyrics Music by G. Whitman
Album: Rengerative Generation®Citadel®
The Citadel Of Cynosure & Other Tales

"This song is written from the perspective of the Earth looking on as we tiny, temporal beings blow each other up – and the land and animals too! Without taking a political side everyone can agree that war is a dungeon of pain and suffering, usually led by those behind the scenes who never get their own hands bloody...all for a crown, for the conquest...grown-up neighborhood bullies who take from others by force that which they cannot attain on their own merits... "Dungeons of War" also takes a few biblical lines into the discussion, "this is the season to make plowshares from our swords" and also fits into the "Citadel of Cynosure" storyline as the battle that forces the Dreemurz and Rezistors to make the ultimate choice when the Affrage invade their domain...
I have seen the faces of eyes that have turned to walk away,
A trembling hand upon the hilt the skies of blue turn to a dismal grey
Many feet in a foreign land, many banners raised
This I've seen, and shall see again, unless the faults of mankind are erased!

Away from the Dungeons (of War) where the fire falls like rain!
And how many lives are spent in a mask of flaming pain?
In need of a reason they shall stain the sinner's sword
With futile hopes of gaining a crown as the 'just' reward..

Tears are shed over brothers lost
half a man never feels the same
The hands still clean of the men behind the scenes of Satan's games
I have seen the faces of those who'll never really walk away
Empty Stares, a bleeding heart, and vengeance stored 'till the final day..

Away from the Dungeons (of War) where the innocent are slain!
And how many lives are spent in a daze of placing blame?
This is the season to make plowshares from our swords
With future hopes of gaining peace as the 'just' reward
