Someone's
By Ross Durand

Additional Vocals by Sierra Durand

Who's it gonna be next time
You want to send someone off to die
And even those that come back,
have a different look in their eye
Then some families fall apart
And some keep a gun by their bed
And every once in awhile think about
Holding it up to their head

But they're someone's father
Someone's mother
Someone's sister
Someone's brother
Someone's daughter
Someone's son
But if you send them away
They won't be for long

Will it be some poor kid
Just trying to pay for school
Or a kid who saw the movies
And he thought the guns we're cool
Will it be a senator's son
A president's daughter
Or the faceless masses
Useless fodder
Going off to battles they didn't choose
Are they fighting me?
Are they dying for you?

Someone's father
Someone's mother
Someone's sister
Someone's brother
Someone's daughter
Someone's son
But if you send them away
They won't be for long

You wouldn't have to send no one next time
If there was no next time at all
Keep the mothers and the fathers
Posting their pictures on the wall
All the laughter, all the tears
All the christmases
All the years
Moments captured - living lives
Instead off to war, to kill and die

Because they're someone's father
Someone's mother
Someone's sister
Someone's brother
Someone's daughter
Someone's son
But if you send them away
They won't be for long
