Of love and deadly war
That shatters and burns
Ennobles and enfeebles
Freezes hope unto ruin
Or for the love of war
The gift that keeps giving
In crimson wrapper
With its harrowed ribbon
The days weary and dim
For the regret comes swift
That we must choose sides
From this grisly box of fate
That is the greatest horror of all
When all we want is peace
