At this late date I believe we are all shell shocked and WAR TORN. ENOUGH ALREADY! Can't we find something better to do with all those hundreds of billions of hard-earned tax money ... than kill people and break things? It is shameful, immoral ... and, folks, we ... the human species, and we Americans in particular at this historical moment ... are accumulating much bad karma. The life-affirming God, and his gracious universe, must be hugely nsulted and saddened.

Here are the lyrics:

WAR TORN

I am war torn ~ gassed in my sleep
I am dragged ~ through city streets
I am bombed ~ to smithereens
and my soul cries out for the Lord.

I am war torn ~ I am blown to bits
I am war torn ~ I am ripped to shreds
I am lined up ~ and shot in the head
and my soul keeps crying for the Lord.

I am war torn ~ my home razed to the ground
I am war torn ~ I am brutally bound
I am war torn ~ my body never found
and my soul keeps crying for the Lord.

I am war torn ~ I am demoralized
I am war torn ~ I am pulverized
I am tortured ~ I am dehumanized
and my soul cries out for the Lord.

I am war torn ~ irradiated
I am war torn ~ eliminated
I am war torn ~ incinerated

I am war torn ~ eradicated
I am war torn ~ decapitated
I am war torn ~ exterminated

I am war torn ~ incarcerated
I am war torn ~ mutilated
I am war torn ~ depopulated
and my soul keeps crying for the Lord.

I am war torn ~ collateral damage
I am smart mobbed ~ shocked and awed
I am war torn ~ ethnically cleansed
and my soul keeps crying for the Lord.

I am the soldier ~ with fire in my eyes
I am the victim ~ I am the sacrifice
I am the bomber ~ and I am the bombed
and my soul keeps crying for the Lord.

I am the soldier ~ with fire in my eyes
I am the victim ~ I am the sacrifice
I am the bomber ~ and I am the bombed
and my soul cries out for the Lord.
