    This song looks back at the Civil War (100 years ago) to examine the futility of war in general.

    It mentions boys in blue and all the gray soldiers which illustrates Union (Blue) against the South (Gray), and how their deaths were regretful.

    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?"

    Obviously referring to the Civil War:

    "I think about a hundred years ago
    How my Fathers bled"

    With a commentary on modern politics:

    "When everyone's talking and no one
    Is listening
    How can we decide"
