'the Aftermath' I also think that the questions asked in this song are important questions, but I see more to them than just the war theme. What are we fighting for? What really was the reason for all the fighting? It just brought more pain, death and suffering. Why didn't we settle the whole thing peacefully? This is probably the most important question in the song, I just hope none of us will be asking this question during our lifetimes. Is it worth the pain? Is it worth dying for? This is actually a question we will all ask in our lifetime, when we go to school, we think "Is this worth all of the hours I spend doing homework every night?", when we have kids we think "Is all the money we spend on him/her gonna help? Is she/he gonna grow into a respectable man/woman?". The answer to these questions is of course, "Yes", as is the question about war, risking your life protecting your family, thats all worth it in the end. Who will take the blame? Another question that we ask everyday in our lives, when we do something wrong, its human nature to avoid the blame, but sometimes we take the blame for others, to keep them out of trouble while other times, you debate who should take it, in a way, you want to, but you want to avoid the trouble. Should we be fighting at all? Sometimes you have an issue with someone and you get into a big arguement, after its over, you wonder. For example, you get a phone call from your kid's principle and your kid was in a fight. They get home and you get mad at them, its in the nature, you worry that your kid is gonna get hurt. You argue with him/her and then afterwards you feel bad about it and you're like "Omg...what have I done...we shouldn't be fighting, we should be talking".
