Lyrics

Jennifer lost the war today, they'll find her burned and raped
Through it all, she must have wondered, "what have I done?"
But nobody really cares today, the world's a busy place
Guess she must have really sinked, now, huh? Really sinked, now

I guess we're all just soldiers, but she was only 6 years old
Left to die by strangers, her family waits
And if we're all just soldiers, is it so wrong to be afraid?
Jennifer lost the war

Phoebe lost the war today, there must be some mistake
Say it happens all the time, and it's said and done
And little Miss 1565, your soul remains unclaimed
Guess you must have really sinked, now, huh? Really sinked, now

Morality won't help her, when she lies silent in a morgue
All our sorrows, well, just don't count at all
But will the morning headlines even say that it's a shame?
What are we heading for? Jennifer lost the war

Seen it all before
Silent on the ground as he's walking away
And I wonder how many more
Everybody takes it like there's nothing to say at all
Oh yeah
Jennifer lost, lost, lost, lost the war, now

I guess we're all just soldiers, but she was only 6 years old
Left to die by strangers, her family waits
And will the morning headlines even say that it's a shame?
What are we heading for?
