Cover shot: "Barlow's Knoll after First Day's Battle" - unknown photographer, public domain
CHO-I was a child and I was laughing then
I am not laughing now
Here upon this battlefield
Where last you cursed
And made your vows.
1- Brother upon brother
Father upon son
It’s left to those still standing
To ask what have we done.
2- If only I could hear sweet rain
Washing down the streams
Drowning out the crying
If only these were only dreams.
3- Be merciful, send down the rain
Keep us from the sun
So pitiless, that burning gaze
I cannot stay, I cannot run.
4 - Mercy on the father
Mercy on the son
Mercy on our million souls
For what has passed and what is still to come.
