The Lyrics

This is another lapse in my U2 parodies. This is another serious one as well....
Heaven-bent to take command
And lead us through a fire
For the long-debated answer
To a wrong and painful fight

Truth be told, we tried our best
But somewhere we lost our way
We got caught up in all Iraq could offer
And the cost was so much more than we could bear

Cause he lied, we've fallen...
We have sunk so low
We messed up
Better we should go
So put all blame here
The U.N. had told us no...

We all began with good intent
Soldiers raw and young
We believed that we could change their lives
And soon the war was won
But they carried on attacks and burdens
Soon it was revealed
With the grisly sights and mourning
These were wounds that would not heal
It's the bitter fate of losing everything
Even ideals

We've fallen
We have sunk so low
We messed up
Better we should go
So put all blame here
The U.N. had told us no...

Heaven-bent to take command
All our bridges burned
Lost a few of all our friends
Seems everybody knows
Maybe daughters, sons, or parents
Or even enemies
But it's one mistake
One shot before you know it
And with hatred now we'll never be redeemed

Cause he lied, we've fallen...
We have sunk so low
We messed up
Better we should go
So put all blame here
The U.N. had told us no...

We messed up
Better we should go
So put all blame here
The U.N. had told us no...

It met the pacing just fine, but it wasn't funny. So I give you a 5-3-5.

Thanks Serafina... but yeah, the subject is anything but humorous...

"but it wasn't funny" A parody doesn't have to be "funny" to be great. Excellent MrMacphisto. Clever chorus.

I agree that a parody doesn't need to be funny to be great, but I think Serafina makes a fair observation. I also think that her vote, 5-3-5, was valid as well. In fact, that's what I voted too (but it looks like I'm gonna have to put it back).
