21st Century Peace Tune
My father made it home from the war with just a touch of insanity,
married, made children, four including me
and he never had to wonder if his brother made it out alive,
his brother was shot, in the back, by the cops, in 1929,
stealing coal off a train in Detroit.
The war’s right here now, on the street now, at your door now,
and everyday you wonder about the ones you love,
did they make it out alive?
