Dear Soldier

The world longs for peace and gets war instead
The breath of this world is shallow
The hope of this world hangs on a mere thread

All these killings, the battlefields are red
Hearts of the tortured are hollow
The world longs for peace and gets war instead

Into these wars we are but blindly led!
We have no choice but to follow
The hope of this world hangs on a mere thread

For all of the fallen who have, for us, bled
Thank you to all these dear heroes
The world longs for peace and gets war instead

You fight our battles and have never fled
Prayers for you reach the cosmos
The hope of this world hangs on a mere thread

Continued bravery still lies ahead
Strengthen the thread with your halo
The world longs for peace and gets war instead
The hope of this world hangs on a mere thread.
