We're Parents of a Soldier

Full Text

1 We're parents of a soldier whether knowing it or not
And whichever side they're on, they are the soldier that we got
If we have the chance to stop them but we never have them stop
Good parents we are not
We are parents of a soldier. We are parents of a soldier
We are parents of a soldier. Good parents we are not

2 We put them in a situation nobody could win
As we teach them how to kill, and then how killing is a sin
When they come out so confused that we're afraid to let them in
Good parents we are not
We are parents of a soldier. We are parents of a soldier
We are parents of a soldier. Good parents we are not

3 If we indeed were loving parents we would be the ones
Who would take away their bullets and would take away their guns
'Cuz we don't want phony heroes, we want daughters, we want sons
So we must be the ones
We are parents of a soldier. We are parents of a soldier
We are parents of a soldier, so we must be the ones.
