about

lyrics

In a separate attack, five American soldiers were killed when a remote bomb detonated beside the road and spilled blood...

You say a thousand ways
That we'll stay
And it rips me again
I've seen you pray and pray
Pray tell
Where will it end?

Television film of a similar incident in Somalia sickened Americans over the U.S. mission there...

You say a thousand ways
That we'll stay
And it rips me again
Proclaim democracy
Moves forth
That it's taken root

Some body parts were raised and left hanging from a telephone cable while incinerated...

The fate of all Americans
The fate of all Americans
The fate of all Americans
We share the same fate

You say a thousand ways
That we'll stay
And it rips me again
I've seen three thousand graves
Pray tell
How will it end?
The White House
Vowed the U.S. Would stay the course.
