(FALLOW FIELDS) the Face of War
? Lyrics & Music by Richard C. Tollini (Kluso) ©2007

See our fields left untended grow only into weeds
While our fences unmended whistle in the breeze
Go an? fetch us some water but save it for yourself
can?t ya see I?m going off to war

Now who fanned these cold embers deep inside my heart
?til the black coals were burning likes bonfires in the dark
I?m gonna see, gonna see gonna see it for myself
Look at me I?m marching off to war

Killed a man, killed a man while I was away
And the mask he was wearing turned like ashes into gray
I got to see, got to see, got to see it for myself
Got to see the bloody face of war

now our fields left untended grow only into weeds
While our fences unmended whistle in the breeze
Go an? fetch me some water and bring it on your knees
Look at me I am the face of war
Look at me I am the face of war
