Crosby Stills Nash & Young: Daylight Again Meaning
Daylight Again Lyrics

Wars are allegedly fought for freedom, yet the cost of that freedom is death, buried in the ground.
The song illustrates that we still have not learned our lesson about the futility of war when measured against human lives and the inability of groups of people to solve problems without war:
"When everyone's talking and no one is listening how can we decide?"
