This Highway

It's about the consequences of war and asks can anyone actually win

Forces of various levels of evil

Several circles of hell

Coming together in the circle of our war

Allies intertwined like threads

Ropes in knots and pieces on the board

 

Rolling down this road

This highway and I don’t know what’s ahead

I’ve got friends alive in this war

Because they killed the others stone cold dead

 

Thrown into the middle

I’ve got to make a choice today

Thrown into the battle

Do I choose to fight, die, or become enslaved?

 

Rolling down this road

This highway and I don’t know what’s ahead

I’ve got friends alive in this war

Because they killed the others stone cold dead

 

Troops come to negotiate with a gun

Bullets fly and blood spills

Count the dead and the battles done

I feel victories today but the war can never be won

Because when we look at who’s standing

We’re broken

When we look at who’s still standing

There’s nothing left of us at all

 

Rolling down this road

This highway and I don’t know what’s ahead

I’ve got friends alive in this war

Because they killed the others stone cold dead

The End
