Ashes of the Wake

Album: Ashes of the Wake (2004)
  • "We killed a lot of innocent civilians
    To us every civilian in Baghdad was a terrorist
    They said 'they are now in civilian clothes' that makes everybody free game
    But if they came in our perimeter, we lit 'em up
    And when we would pull the body out, and when we would search the car, we would find nothing
    This took place time and time again
    No harm, no foul. That's okay, don't worry about it
    Because this is a new type of war, this is an eradication"

    "I honestly feel we're committing genocide over here
    I don't believe in killing civilians
    and I'm not going to kill civilians for the United States Marine Corps" Writer/s: CHRIS ADLER, DAVID RANDALL BLYTHE, JOHN CAMPBELL, MARK MORTON, WILL ADLER
