Upon hearing of the loss of yet one more veteran friend, these lyrics flowed out of me through tears. We're losing veterans to suicide at a rate of 22 per day by most estimates, while some claim even this number is too conservative to capture them all.

This is a TRAGEDY, and NEEDS OUR ATTENTION!

lyrics

<gurgling intestinal activity and squeaky door>
[The Unites States Department of Veterans Affairs released a study, which, revealed twenty two veterans commit suicide every day.]

How long can I do this?
How long can carry this grief?
How long 'til it's over and done,
Please tell me when it's safe to breathe.

Ten fingers, ten toes,
How many more, nobody knows;
I've lost count over these two short years and,
now they tell me it's beginning to snow.

Don't call them heroes
They never, ever asked that of you;
They served the bankers in the dirty little sandbox,
then came back home with nothing to do.
All the opportunities lost,
Do you ever count the cost?
At the gas pump, the grocery store,
We all cling to the bosom of the whoress of war.

One by one they all pass away,
and we're losing twenty two every day;
One by one they all take their own lives,
Over walking the streets and tryin' to survive...
One by one they all pass away,
and we're losing twenty two every day;
One by one they all pass away,
and we're losing twenty two Veterans every day!
