We Were Young
We Have Died - Remember us 

By: Hondo Swedland 

We were so young, but had to die,
The FREE in freedom was the reason why,
I didn't run I did what's right,
With a gun I learned to fight. 

All gave some, some gave all,
The price we paid, cost you this wall, 
If you don't like something, change it. 
If you can't change it, 
Change the way you think about it! 

"If I had to do it all over again, 
I wouldn't change what I did ... 
I would change the way I felt about what I did." 

Your freedom was /is worth every drop that We shed ,
This has to be true, or why am I dead? 
So live all your life, real happy and free 
Look up at a Star and think about me. 

You don't have to thank us or get down on your knee 
But remember the price it cost to be free...

Its my birthday! again

 I woke up this morning
 And opened one eye,
 Said today is my Birthday
 Again, it's a lie.

I think of the names that are on our wall,
And all of the birthdays, 
That won't get a call. 

So I say it's my birthday 
And everyone will smile
Till I tell them my reason, 
Think of them for a while.

So many young birthdays that won't hear that song
No spankings or presents , its been very long.
But I'll sing them their song, 
Their candles I'll light
 For its some Brothers birthday,
 Lets not forget them tonight...

 Happy Birthday my Brothers..
