For Protecting Their Right, To Say Things That Are Wrong

We served with honor, In a far off place
Where we won every battle, but still lost face

We were treated as though, we had asked for the war
We were hated and yelled at and so much more

They chanted and ranted and talked of the war
They had love-ins and protests, and concerts and more
They professed to be scholars and gurus and the like

But we needed to talk, and have our thoughts see the light
But they wouldn’t listen to us, or give us their time

They called us Kid Killer’s and Druggies and such
This made us despair, and hurt us so much

But we still would be willing, to give up our lives
For their God given right, to tell all of Their Lies

So we dealt with our demons and dealt with our pain
But we never were able to deal with Their Shame

Some of our Brothers will never be right
And some have decided to give up the fight

But now they decided to treat us so good
Because they were wrong and because that they could

And now there are people that would do us great harm
So they’ve called on our daughters and sons to be gone

But still they say bad things,
And say we are wrong

For protecting their right, to say things that are wrong
