You Will

You try to be a pacifist
But sometimes evil can preside
Until the need to take some action
Creates a moral override

Sometimes war is the answer
As bitter as it might taste
Taking a life to save many more
Can save the world from total waste

Don’t make the decision light
But don’t ponder it too long
The best defense can be overthrown
Inaction makes aggression strong

Judgment call
Stand or fall
Is it for the benefit of us all?

Lives taken
Lives forever changed
Friends dying
Dreams forsaken
Made of nightmares
From the depths of hell
You can’t kill another man
But you know you will
You will
You will

Bloodshed on the battlefield
Not because you want to kill
You know peace and freedom can’t exist
In a tyranny of evil

Lives taken
Lives forever changed
Friends buried
Hopes forsaken
Made of nightmares
From the depths of hell
You can’t kill another man
But you know you will
You will
You will
