about

lyrics

Aaron tried to fight all of his pain
he'd walk through the halls keeping people afraid
and the Homecoming Queen and three kids that they had
now have a habit for a mother and a ghost for a dad
but I guess they still whisper his name

Nobody asked to be born
to wander the dark wondering what you're here for
nobody asked to be born

John put that gun in his mouth
With a whole town so proud the day that he shipped out
well his body came home but his nerves they did not
it took a heroes courage to fire that shot
Now there's just a flag blowing over his grave

Nobody asked to be born
to wander the dark wondering what you're here for
Nobody asked to be born

Laura had something to say
But they said "Bury it deep, boy, you should be ashamed"
but she left the door open for the whole world to see
that every man and every woman should be, who the feel they should be
and that you don't have to kill to be brave

Nobody asked to be born
to wander the dark wondering what you're here for
Nobody asked to be born
Nobody asked to be born
