Withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan

In a desert far away
In a land not so near
We gathered all our youth
In the prime of their years

And we sent them to far away lands
To fight in some distant sands
Though we promised long ago
That we'd never kill our young anymore

And it's fight, fight, fight
Line them up in our sights
On the screen the enemy – just isn't real.

As long as there's no face
We can bomb the whole damn place
'cause there's just no one left
keeping score.

Don't it seem so strange
Though the years have changed
That we still can't have peace
without war

I guess that we couldn't see
All the pain the war gave me
They took my childhood friends
And they're never coming back
anymore..

And it's fight, fight, fight
Line them up in our sights
On the screen the enemy – just isn't real

Let the lasers go
The horizon starts to glow
'cause there's just no one left
keeping score.


Though the Viet vets have grown
They're still looking for a home
After all the blood we saw on TV

For the war every night
Made us sick of the sight
And we promised long ago
That we'd never kill our young anymore

And it's fight, fight, fight
Line them up in our sights
On the screen the enemy -just isn't real

In the early dawning light
We'll ignore the awful sight
'cause there's just no one left
Keeping score

And it's fight, fight, fight
Line them up in our sights
On the screen the enemy
just isn't real

In the early dawning light
We'll ignore the awful sight
'cause there's just no one left
Keeping score

'Cause there's just no one left
Keeping score

'Cause there's just no one left
Keeping score

'Cause there's just no one left
Keeping score..
