Back in the days of shock and awe
D          A             Bm
We came to liberate them all
Bm              D              E        G
History was the cruel judge of overconfidence
Bm          A                 G       F#
Back in the days of shock and awe
 
Back in the days of "mission accomplished"
Our chief was landing on the deck
The sun was setting on a golden photo op
Back in the days of "mission accomplished"
 
Thousands of bodies in the ground
Brought home in a boxes to a trumpet's sound
No one sees them coming home that way
Thousands buried in the ground

INTRO

Thousands of children scarred for life
Millions of tears for a soldier's wife
Both sides losing now
Heaven takes them in
Thousands of children scarred for life
 
We had a chance to change our mind
But somehow wisdom was hard to find
We went with what we knew an now we can't go back
But we had a chance to change our mind.

INTRO
