There are a lot of perfect reasons
To never fight another war
There are a lot of perfect questions
As to whats worth fighting for
There are a lot of perfect fools
Who refuse to read the writing on the wall

But the truth is there are people
Whove made it crystal clear
That it is their holy mission
To destroy all we hold dear
They are visibly out searching for the fire
To make this towing nation fall

Now we can just sit back and wait
Until they spill more precious blood
Or we can seek these cowards out
And nip their slaughter in the bud

Audios sweet home and family
Im off to fight a war that must be won
Youll know why Im going when you see
The snow white rows of Arlington

Every blade of grass is sacred
Every headstone is a shrine
To somebody who was willing
To put existence on the line
The liberty we take for granted
Was purchased with their patriotic lives

Are their sleeping spirits restless?
Do they listen for the sound?
Of the mustering of armies
To defend their hallowed ground?
Will we rise to the occasion
To ensure their legacy survives?

Through the willows blow soft breezes
They are whispering my name
Asking did they die for nothing?
Arent I the keeper of the flame?

Audios sweet home and family
Wave goodbye to your Louisiana son
You will know why Im leaving when you see
The snow white rows of Arlington

Audios sweet home and family
Wave goodbye to your Louisiana son
And if it be my fate youll find me
Proudly sleeping in the snow white,
When you see the snow white rows of Arlington
