Dear mom, Alana's in her second trimester

Stressed out 'cause I'm gone, she acting all extra

We're happy ?cause she knows it's a girl

But we doubtful if we should bring another one in the world

An' the pic you sent with you, and the kids is da bomb

I'm keepin? all my photos in my 23rd Psalm

My best friend Armani lost her arm at the border

Just tryin? to restore a little peace and order

An? it's strange ?cause she reads the Koran

Torn between what side she needs to be on

Haven't slept for days, I squeeze Visine

?Cause no man's eyes should see what I've seen

Soldiers lost their mind, robbin?, pillagin?

Tomahawk missiles into civilian villages

And they ease the pain with narcotics

I'm scared but I'm tryin? to remain patriotic

My father, forgive us

?Cause we know not what we doin?

And my brothers, how we gonna tie up

All these loose ends?

And my mother, tryin? to use

Ev'rything you taught me to keep it movin'

And my brothers and sisters, how we gonna tie up

All these loose ends?

New message from mom, at Bringbackthetroopsdot.com

At home they 'Nam, so sad you had to miss Shavonne's prom

Just some songs off the Marvin Gaye 'What?s Going On? album

And her smile lit up the room

She asks me if at night when she stares at the moon

Is it possible at the same moment of time

You're starin' as well? 'Cause you two were in tune

Your dad's Purple Heart now hangs over his ashes

An' Trini's alive and wake up with hot flashes

They say the disease's gastric

Have yet to explain the migraines and rashes

And have you seen what the price of gas is?

We can't afford the property taxes

We just want you back at home

Where you belong with your family

You're the backbone

My father, forgive us

'Cause we know not what we doin'

And my brothers, how we gonna tie up

All these loose ends?

And my mother, tryin? to use

Ev'rything you taught me to keep it movin'

And my brothers and sisters, how we gonna tie up

All these loose ends?

Tell me how can we live this way

We've gone so far astray, no one knows what to say

We got young peoples lives at stake

What is it gonna take for us to find a way?

The world is changin?, we in danger

'Cause we ain't changin our behavior

We behave like calm is nothing

Ain?t concerned with repercussions, ain?t that somethin?

Check 'em out now, pointin? fingers

When they know how we got to this point of terror

Precaution could have made the road clearer

But we stuck with mediocre leadership

So we'll just suffer

Who knows what the hell is going on

With conflicts they keep on growing

It's a fucked up situation

When you ain't got no education

On the problem or know what it?s about

You gotta help me out
