(FALLOW FIELDS) the Face of War
? Lyrics & Music by Richard C. Tollini (Kluso) ©2007

See our fields left untended grow only into weeds
While our fences unmended whistle in the breeze
Go an? fetch us some water but save it for yourself
can?t ya see I?m going off to war

Now who fanned these cold embers deep inside my heart
?til the black coals were burning likes bonfires in the dark
I?m gonna see, gonna see gonna see it for myself
Look at me I?m marching off to war

Killed a man, killed a man while I was away
And the mask he was wearing turned like ashes into gray
I got to see, got to see, got to see it for myself
Got to see the bloody face of war

now our fields left untended grow only into weeds
While our fences unmended whistle in the breeze
Go an? fetch me some water and bring it on your knees
Look at me I am the face of war
Look at me I am the face of war

Description
Short Song Description:
A reflection on the seeds and impact of violence and war in our society
Long Song Description:
A lot of people are against the war in Iraq (now) but seemed "OK" or passive about it at the beginning ... this songs tries to simply state our human ability to justify actions initially and then regret the results after ... if we could somehow turn that
Story Behind the Song:
... just everday life ... watching the news, etc...
