Guess who I got?

Unfinished Soldier

Unfinished soldier, a portrait not yet done
A graduation not yet hung
A solo not yet sung
Unfinished soldier in a war they did not choose
Who had far too much to lose.

If we light the falling stars
They brighten where they lie
And no more embers die
No premature goodbyes

If we light the falling stars
And make a light unto our path
We can see our footprints swell
And tell the tales that we tell

If only they could still be sitting at a desk
Still too soon to talk about guns and all the rest
The children they should be, what? Seen and just not heard
If something must be said, adults will say the words

If we light the falling stars
They brighten where they lie
And no more embers die
No premature goodbyes

If we light the falling stars
And make a light unto our path
We can see our footprints swell
And tell the tales that we tell

Unfinished soldier standing in the sun
Waiting for the orders to put them on the run
Who are they? We don’t know, they never tell us that
Need to know need to know keep the questions in your hat

If we light the falling stars
They brighten where they lie
And no more embers die
No premature goodbyes

If we light the falling stars
And make a light unto our path
We can see our footprints swell
And tell the tales that we tell

Editorial pick

Epic 70s funk rock with a psychedelic Bowie-vibe and an exceptionally uplifting chorus. Admiral Bob’s Interstellar Secret Mixter mix of Copperhead provides a burst of hope for these trying times with inspired lyrics that challenge us to “light the falling stars.” This is what I firmly believe is a must listen track.
