Secret War
Lyrics
SECRET WAR by Richard C. (Kluso) Tollini © 2005
(1st Verse)
Your golden skies do they seem so far away
And blue eyes, blue eyes, blue eyes like you?ll never see again
When they shake your hand how do you feel inside do you
Want to scream ? they got it all wrong??.The ultimate sacrifice

So lay down, lay down in green fields and rest your weary soul (head)
You know you?re the best hope for our future so?tell all the world what you know
Tell the world what you know, tell us the truth you know
(chorus)
So come here now my son an? tell me ?bout your secret war not the one
you fought on foreign shores, but the one that comes at night when the demons
call
(2d verse)
so?now don?t bury it inside and save it for your golden year
the bitter bile will eat its way through the thin veneer of your pride and all those
who throw the garlands at your feet then look the other way until they
think its safe to speak of the shame of it all, and ?ain?t it such a waste?

so lay down, lay down, lay down here where you can see your golden skies, and
know one day you will find your way to where the eagle flies, to where the eagle flies, to where the ea___gles fly
(Chorus)
So come here now my son an? tell me ?bout your secret war not the one
you fought on foreign shores, but the one that comes at night when the demons
call
(Bridge)
They?re calling you to accept your fate and close this open door and they?re
Tell you there?s nothing wrong with killing those who hate, but you don?wanna hear no more, don?wanna hear no more, don?wanna hear_______no more___
(2d Bridge)
And if they really knew the truth dontcha think they?d find another way That everything we think and say and do comes back to you some day, comes back to you some, comes back to you some day_______
(Outro Chorus)
So come here now my son an? tell me ?bout your secret war so you can come home once again and find the peace you fought to win under your golden skies
(Refrain)
So come here my son and tell me ?bout your Secret War mmmmmm
