lyrics

Mud filled trenches
riddled with famine and death
clutch tight the locket from home
dip the pen in blood and write back.
The air smells thick with sulfur gas
the horses cry out for sweet release
food runs sparse and the wounded howl
with fresh clean socks worth their weight in gold.
Fireworks shoot across a barren patch
of bodies, barbed wire, and broken homes
clouds of smoke, a toxic miasma
and the sound of saws cutting through the bone.
Mommy, when is daddy coming home?
I don't know, sweety, we'll have to wait and see.
Dear family, I won't be home for Christmas
You'll just have to celebrate without me.
Mommy, who's that man coming to the door?
I don't know, sweety, we'll have to wait and see.
Dear family, I'm sorry to say he's gone.
Mommy, when is daddy coming home?
