The *quote is from Linkin Park 'Hands Held High'
from their album
Cost Of Innocence
Carefully scripted, you bureaucrats send comfort
to families of a deceased one,
when you were the instrumental key
to the trigger of the soldier's gun,
how can you live with the fall-out
of what your decision making has done?
Tell me, how does one multiply
the worth of the innocent souls that die?
*"When the rich wage war,
it's the poor that die."
A picture so heart wrenching to see
of a child cradling their dead parent,
another kid orphaned by the powers that be
and really those powers don't care,
their talk can't fool you and me
that peace NOT war is the key.
