YOU NEED SOMEONE TO BLAIM

Who allows refuge to the enemy that lives within
They that do war are your
Father, Brother, Sister, Mother
Uncle, Cousin, Auntie, neighbor
And life long friend.
So you refuse to fight your battles
But still you need some one to blame
So my Father, Brother, Sister, Mother
Uncle, Cousin, Auntie, neighbor
And life long friend;
Come from their homes and that place by my side
In the name of humanitarian aid
They fight in your stead
The enemy that lives within
Your Father, Brother, Sister, Mother
Uncle, Cousin, Auntie, neighbor
And life long friend
And death follows as death does in war;
So Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Mothers
Uncles, Cousins, Aunties, neighbors
And life long friends, die
As we strive to kill that enemy that lives within
But still
You need someone to blame
For the lose of your
Father, Brother, Sister, Mother
Uncle, Cousin, Auntie, neighbor
And life long friend.
Dare I hate you or blame you
Or the forces that said that my
Father, Brother, Sister, Mother
Uncle, Cousin, Auntie, neighbor
And life long friend;
Should come to your aid
And die
And should they return to me
Alive though minus a limb or life
Who should I blame
When they that survive intact
Are forced to return to fight in your stead
That enemy that lives within
Your Father, Brother, Sister, Mother
Uncle, Cousin, Auntie, neighbor
And life long friend;
Until they to die?
While who allows refuge to
 
THE ENEMY THAT LIVES WITHIN
