world war one,
what do you think was really won?
there was no money put off to the side
it was but every soldiers pride

all we wanted was to be free
not to suffer for the enemy's need
there was smoke and gas everywhere
bullets were hitting you through thin air

i was starting to think that the trenches were the safest place
until enemies came and were chasing me through a race
i can still hear the screams and the fear
i can smell the poison and the gas

i can almost feel myself choke
my friends and family came and fought with me
i wish they would have
stayed home so they can see

they are dead now; all of them

all but cousin Eddie who is missing a few limbs
i still cry every night
but i'm most thankful i didnt go into the heaven light

people always say how lucky i must be
if i was so lucky then i would have a family with me
so what was won during this time?
no one will ever know what was behind enemy lines.
