What For?

Lyrics & Music by Daniel J. Bell
Album: Whispers

The horror of being manipulated by false shams of honor and dying for nothing.
He's got a lot of dreams in his heart
He joined up just to be a part..
But something on the way kind of blew apart
'Cause he won't be coming home.

He's got a lot of sand in his socks
Underneath that Ipod he rocks
And though he shoots his gun from his laptop
You know he won't be coming home..

I near a sad song on the radio
About a boy ain't coming home
It's another sad song on the radio
About dying so far from home..

He's talking to his mother in his dreams
He's says: "Oh mother it's not what it seems
'Cause all I hear at night are their screams
And we won't be coming home.. "

I near a sad song on the radio
About a boy ain't coming home
It's another sad song on the radio
About dying so far from home.

And what for? I heard an angel cry
What for, what for, what for?
What for I heard an angel cry
What for... Oh, why?


The souls at Abu Ghraib they cry
Their tears just hang from the sky
When the killers and the killed don't know why
And the rest is a god-damned lie..

I near a sad song on the radio
About a boy ain't coming home
It's another sad song on the radio
About dying so far from home..

And – What For? – I heard an angel cry
What For, What For, What For
What For – I heard an angel cry
What For... Oh, Why?


..soldier walking slowly away humming...
