Miles away, I miss family’s smiles
The laughter in their throats crack me up
But I’ve been caught in between deadly wars
Through lies and deceit, we cover crimes up
Through the state media, fake news is leaked out
Some military soldiers have gone rogue
Street signs and city’s names have been scrapped out
We can’t move left or right, all we see is fog

Perhaps its smoke, there’s a smell of burnt flesh
Human flesh is roasted for birds of prey.
With cold days and hot nights, nothing is fresh
I choke carrying heavy artillery
The military training was a hoax
And I dread coming back home in a box!
