A mother was grieving her loss, her soldier the ultimate cost
She went to the man who's been told that he's a king
Waited outside of his compound to ask him a few things
She said, "For what noble cause did my son have to die
Tell me where are their weapons and why did you have to lie?"
A lieutenant in the army in his heart and his soul he believes
In the land of the free and the home of the brave
And now he's standing on trial for he will not behave as they wish
He said, "I believe the constitution to defend it and uphold
I will not fight your war for profit, no sir, I will not go"
A scientist and his machine of the smallest of life he has seen
Inside matter, inside atoms as far as you can go
He saw the strings of life that vibrate with the universal flow
He said, "I have seen the spirit and all its creation
It's in each and every thought and all our intentions"
