Written by WOMANIZER bassist, DON COOROUGH, expressing concerns during an age when the military draft was in effect.

lyrics

THEY DIED YOUNG

The king went to battle with the nation's sons.
Sitting high in the saddle with consequences shunned.
Couldn't hear the rabble just the carnage of the guns.
They died young. They died young.

The draft board called my name but I didn't hear.
They shackled me in blame but I was in the clear.
It's generals who gain fame while mothers shed more tears.
They died young. They died young.

Parents raise their sons for years. and teach them wrong from right.
Giving hopes to quiet fears. through love sons grew & strived.
Suddenly a harbinger, a wire in the night.
Now is known his greatest fears, their son has lost his life.

The nation saw the dying & it mourned & grieved
By bathing in it's buying & glorifying greed
But ’neath gravestones are lying the waste of human seed
Who died young. They died young.
