Lyrics

Of blood, and oil, and sand
and lost belief in right or reason
Jacob's ladder is missing rungs
and is only seen in sleepless dreaming
as shadows of memories fade
so does what is left of that loving feeling
easier to spend days numb
than to see and feel the field where he layed

It ain't over
for some its a lifetime
it aint over
the war never ends
the war never ends

Idealistic boy's ambitions
filled with fantasies of bulletproof luck
sudden caustic recognition that fate chooses no flags
favors no blood
alive and home but different
because part of him was left in Iraq
but Jacob's a soldier and he'll fight to return
climb to rebirth

It ain't over
for some its a lifetime
it aint over
the war never ends
the war never ends

-
Jacob's ladder is broken, missing rungs
but the question is when, not if, he'll climb
'cause Jacob's ladder reaches to a heaven
of peace at soul and sound of mind
-

It ain't over
for some its a lifetime
it ain't over
It ain't over
for some its a lifetime
it ain't over
the war never ends
the war never ends
