As I watched the trucks go by
With two caskets lined up side-by-side
I could not help but wonder
At the Essence of our grief
As we gave our salutes goodbye
Under the moonlit sky

The mountains were clothed in serenity
As the valley dust whistled in the air
The words of Sisyphus harkin to our ears
That life’s laden tasks are ours to bare

And

As I watched the plane arrive
With two caskets waiting side-by-side
I could not help but wonder
At the nature of our lives
As the tears began to fall
Under the moonlit sky

The Engines Roared to life’s unrest
As voices echoed a world’s lament
Sisyphus rises to thoughts reborn
As we wait at heaven’s gate

And

As I watched the crew walk by
With two Caskets lined up side-by-side
I could not help but wonder
At the pain they held so dear
As our fear began to rise
Under the moonlit sky

The tractor’s squealed as if in pain
Their burden’s heavy without refrain
Sisyphus weeps as if to say
Two more hero’s have died today

And

As I watched the base go by
With two caskets flying side-by-side
I could not help but wonder
At the nature of our quest
As the air grew cold
Under the moonlit sky

The Clouds hover beneath our wings
As angels sing our souls to flight
We fell to man’s disgrace
As others toil in our wake

And

As we watched the crowds go by
Our caskets moving side-by-side
We could not help but wonder
At the nature of their cries
As the hatred filled their eyes
Under the moonlit sky

The soundless tremors of the earth
Lay quiet before the storm
As Sisyphus rises to wage his war
We each decry our given fate

And

As we watch our families go by
Our two caskets lined up side-by-side
I could not help but wonder
At the nature of our lives
As the love streamed from their eyes
Under the moonlit sky
