    On the road to Basra stood young Lieutenant Jimmy Bly
    Detailed to go through the clothes of the soldiers who died
    At night in dreams he sees their souls rise
    Like dark geese into the Oklahoma skies

    Well this is a prayer for the souls of the departed
    Those who've gone and left their babies brokenhearted
    This is a prayer for the souls of the departed

    Now Raphael Rodriguez was just seven years old
    Shot down in a schoolyard by some East Compton Cholos
    His mamma cried "My beautiful boy is dead"
    In the hills the self-made men just sighed and shook their heads

    This is a prayer for the souls of the departed
    Those who've gone and left their babies brokenhearted
    Young lives over before they got started
    This is a prayer for the souls of the departed

    Tonight as I tuck my own son in bed
    All I can think of is what if it would've been him instead
    I want to build me a wall so high nothing can burn it down
    Right here on my own piece of dirty ground

    Now I ply my trade in the land of king dollar
    Where you get paid and your silence passes as honor
    And all the hatred and dirty little lies
    Been written off the books and into decent men's eyes
