This song had been churning in the back of my hard drive for a couple months. I've worked with it, toyed with it, added, deleted, wrote lyrics, removed lyrics. I think I've finally battered it into submission and turned out something. I'm not sure what that thing is or if my amateur self has done justice with my mixing, but here it is, warts and all.

Edit: See end of lyrics for what the numbers being chanted are.

Some people have asked what the numbers being chanted are. I added an explanation at the end of the lyrics for anyone who wants to know.

Thanks everyone for the comments and for listening!

Great Work!!! Good music, worthwhile subject matter. I couldn't agree more with the despicable priorities politicians have had while making the decisions to bomb folks and put our troops in harms way, lately. It is heartbreaking to think of our dead. And it is scary to think about how many fanatics we have created by killing their families. Never a good idea to bomb folks unless it is absolutely the last resort. Or unless you are sure you can incinerate everyone that has any reason to care for the folks you just killed. (and of course that is impossible, and even more immoral than what we have already rationalized and done) God Bless America (we are going to need it)

Well, that's an awful lot of music you must miss. But that's ok. I can understand since I attempt now to watch as little news as possible; it all just angers me. Even the non-political news they choose to cover over some great stories out there make me mad.

Just the same, thanks for trying this one!

I love politics in music.
Almost as much as I love democracy, which is as absent as my ex-wives.You are good man, ob, for having the courage to speak, and the world needs more voices of reason. Thank you.

Interesting (thinking about the numbers and their meaning). Dark, contemplative, just my kind of stuff. Will def. go on my iPod.

Woah, that plane sound effect took me by surprise. I could def. hear more war sound effects mixed in throughout (a la Atom Heart Mother).

Nice chatting with you today.

You are my G4 guru. If you can make tunes like this on the G4 then maybe there is hope in saving the tower beast in my basement!

After reading the significance of the lyrics, I had to add that as a socio-political statement, this musical piece is quite a bold composition of creativity.

Y'know... I didn't think it could be done, but you've managed to make numbers seem quite "sexy" here -- hee hee! Very cool composition... I may be about 2 years late adding my kudos to the mix, but better late than never, yes? I'm so glad I found this!

Noticing the release date of of this one,and realizing that 2years later the numbers have grown greatly~also realizing that
the average age of the dead is in their 20s~ so sad they give their lives and never really know the real reason why! This work of art is even more relevant today than it was 2 yrs ago.
so glad I've found your music~this is the kind of work that makes one think! I'm thankful that social consciousness is alive and well....thanx for sharing!

OB!

Somehow those numbers don't add up to any logical reason as to why we murder our solders for oil....wow...I'm stunned at the brilliance of the lyrics! I'm stunned at the numbers and the representation of sons, husbands, brothers, friends, lost.

Can't help but think of humans and progress....

human progress...almost feels like an oxymoron some times.

Brilliant work...absolutely brilliant!

CU!
