Melissa Lou Etheridge (born May 29, 1961) is an American rock singer-songwriter and activist. more »

A mother was grieving her loss
Her soldier the ultimate cost
She went to the man
Who has been told he's a king
 Waited outside of his compound 
To ask him a few things 

Ya-I-ya-a-wayy

She said "for what noble cause
Did my son have to die?
Tell me where are there weapons?
Why did you have to lie?"

 Imagine that

A lieutenant in the army
In his heart and his soul he believes 
In the land of the free
And the home of the brave 
Now he's standing on trial 
For he will not behave 
As they wish

Ya-I-ya-a-wayy

He said "I believe the constitution 
To defend it and uphold 
I will not fight your war for profit 
No sir I will not go"

 Imagine that

A scientist and his machine 
The smallest of life he has seen
 Inside matter inside atoms
As far as you can go
He saw the strings of life that vibrate 
With the universal flow

Ya-I-ya-a-wayy

He said "I have seen the spirit 
And all its creation 
Its in each and every thought
And all our intentions"

 Imagine that
 Imagine that
 Imagine that
 Imagine that
