Lyrics

17 WORDS

He scribbled down what’d be his last
seventeen words
and no matter the fear inside,
he knew it was time for it.

Before the eyes of the lord of war,
an extreme prayer,
wrapped in flames in the gathering dusk,
demanded end to it.

Just the outrage of a madman,
heartless father, idealistic fool!
Such a courage in this young man!

Without a husband, without a dad,
just a few words,
to accept his will as an act of love,
to come to terms with it.

Just the outrage of a madman,
heartless father, idealistic fool!
Such a courage, in this young man.

His name resounds across the oceans
