Seasons of War

I'm sure you have seen this parody of the Obama "Yes We Can" video, staring John McCain. If you haven't seen the video, here you go:

Well, as I was listening to this, a reimagined "Seasons of Love" from the musical Rent popped into my head. I give you, "Seaons of War"

5,256,000,000 minutes, 5,256,000,000 moments so seared. 5,256,000,000 minutes - how do you measure,
measure 10,000 years? In bombings, in violence, in midnight raids, in I.E.Ds.
In inches, in miles, in screaming, in strife. In 5,256,000,000 minutes - how do you measure 10,000 years in a war?
How about war? How about war? How about war? Measure in war.
Seasons of war.

5,256,000,000 minutes! 5,256,000,000 journeys to nowhere?. 5,256,000,000 minutes - how can you measure
the life of a soldier - don't you care?

In truths that we learned, or in times that we cried. In bridges we burned, or the way that soldiers die.

It’s time now to sing out, tho the war never ends(?) let's celebrate remember 10,000 years in the life of friends.
Rememberthe war! Remember the war! Remember the war!
Measure of war. Seasons of war! Seasons of war.
