this song is about a theoretical situation of a war going on in america

War In America

You think war is a far of thing
What if someday that changed?
What if someday war brings
Disease, starvation, and pain?
What if it hits us close to home
And becomes a little more real?
Horrors that you’ve never known
Things you never feel

Chorus
What if there was a war in America?
What would you do, could you survive?
What if they invaded all of our
Homes, our towns, and our lives?x2

Young men dying in the streets
Death everywhere
The government can’t care for our needs
And leave us in despair
Running away full of fear
From the roaming death squads
AK-47 automatic fire
Are unfavorable odds

Chorus
What if there was a war in America?
What would you do, could you survive?
What if they invaded all of our
Homes, our towns, and our lives?x2

You haven’t even graduated
But still they hand you a gun
You see kids your brother’s age
Getting shot at as they run
You wonder how you will survive
And worry for your loved ones
You pray for those who have died
And forgiveness for what you’ve done

Chorus
What if there was a war in America?
What would you do, could you survive?
What if they invaded all of our
Homes, our towns, and our lives?x2
Seven years later and the war is over
Leaving a barren wasteland
There’s nothing left, nowhere to go
And you try to understand
How everything from your childhood
Has become infinite slums
You stand where your house once stood
And wonder if help will come

Chorus
What if there was a war in America?
What would you do, could you survive?
What if they invaded all of our
Homes, our towns, and our lives?x3

That’s what would happen if there was a war in America.

good poem
i dunno how it would do as a song but its a great poem. awesome job.
just a sidenote, repeating those choruses so much might make it really long, but i dunno what speed your doing it at.

dont take this in offense, but it sounds like old U2 (AKA: good U2, Rattle and Hum/Joshua Tree). Check out Bullet in the Blue Sky ( http://www.lyricsondemand.com/u/u2lyrics/bullettheblueskylyrics.html )and Silver and Gold You might get some really creative ideas
