Twisted minds that work as one,
They plot your destiny.
You stand and watch your only son,
Deprived of dignity.
Contempt and hatred all you feel,
A wound you know will never heal.
You sent him out to pay the price.
Did what you thought was best.
You sent him out to be a man.
Almost laid to rest.
Unseen powers that deal the cards,
A bitter rage you can't reveal,
Because of stupid pride.
What you want ain't always good for you.
It;s just the way the balance swings for you,
Balance swings for you.
Have no conscience, feel no pain,
All you need's a flag.
