"It's Not Our War" Copyright 2005

Written by: Richard Pulin
Performed By Rich Mix and the Posse
Featuring Rich Pulin, Rapper/Narrator

"did we learn anything from vietnam or are we making the same mistakes-
sending our kids to foreign shores and creating new heartaches-
so bring them back from iraq
we've got to know right from wrong,i said,
bring them back from iraq
bring them home where they belong-

it's not our war, what are we fighting for
it's not our war, what are we fighting for
it's not our war, what are we fighting for

mass destruction's happening at home right on our streets
homeless folks with rags for clothes-begging for something to eat-kids looking for love, doing drugs and parents that don't have time-stop feeding us lies, let's get wise, shut the door on this crazy war-

it's not our war, what are we fighting for
it's not our war, what are we fighting for
it's not our war, what are we fighting for

remember 9-11, why's bin laden allowed to run free
while the troops are in iraq under attack, it doesn't make sense to me
is it all about our quest for oil and how far we'll go to this extreme-
capture osama, end the drama- shut the door on this crazy war

it's not our war, what are we fighting for
it's not our war, what are we fighting for
it's not our war, what are we fighting for"

‘Kill me a son’

God looked down and said
Kill me a son
But when one son was dead
The killing wasn’t done

The killing went on
And more sons came
Some said it was wrong
But more were still slain

Why did we make war?
To that place in the East
WMDs for sure
The devil’s had his feast
