on Sunday mornings
over 2400 crosses line the beach in santa monica
2400 families whose loved ones were "supported"
with a knock on the door and a flag
"bravery" and "freedom"
are lines in the sand that blow away
when oil profits rise
each and every day
these colors may not "run"...
they merely keep the straight and steady course...
staring like deer into the headlights
of an oncoming train
there's too many crosses on this beach
too many people we cant reach
who scoff and scorn and say we preach
but they wont learn if we dont teach
