We’re fighting wars against the devil *TRIGGER WARNING: WAR AND PTSD*

We’re just a bunch of sinners

Looking to be winners

In this game called war

But no one can truly win

With shotguns pressed to their heads

And grenades under their beds

Maybe someday,

We can stop reloading our ammo

Stop hoping to finish a war

We didn’t even start

We’re being good soldiers

Starting a battle

Finishing with a little less

Waking up in war zones

Telling ourselves we’re good men

We’re good people

And that murder

Is acceptable in times of need

We’re all just gonna end up being Angels with shotguns

In the end what were we even fighting for?
