Why do we always end up in the place where we began?

Why is it freedom fades away and dies in every land?


I think the problem lies within the reason why we fight,

for it is not to win the war then stand guard day and night

and so the stage is set that every time we rise we fall.


Yes, time has shown we do not fi...

A Step Half Made
