4th of July

"4th of July," the latest single from Stone's side project Painted Shield, highlights the moral injury experienced by many service members as tey return home from conflict.
4th of July
And the fireworks are changing the sky
above the park
War is a lie
And my memories are turning my mind
from light to dark
Since I came home
I feel alone
My wife beside me
Kids in her arms
But I’ve got children inside me
They’re running from me
Across the desert
Blood on their faces
Got to bring them home

Can you bring them home?
Can you light their way?
4th of July
Can you help them?
Can you bring them home?

4th of July
And the fire fight is bleaching the sky
above the sand
Peace is a lie
When the enemy is just trying to survive
in his own land
Since I left home
I feel alone
Soldiers beside me
Children in arms
There’re other children inside me
They’re running towards me
Across a lifetime
Fear on their faces
Got to bring them home

Can we bring them home?
Can we light their way?
4th of July
Can we help them?
Can we bring them home?
