John Ondrasik Blood On My Hands Song Details

Artist: Five for Fighting
Album: Blood on My Hands
Released: 13 September 2021
Genre: Folk

Five For Fighting singer-songwriter John Ondrasik has released a new song that’s very critical of the US withdrawal strategy from Afghanistan.

The Grammy-nominated artist wrote his new track “Blood On My Hands” shortly after learning of the suicide bombing in Kabul that left 13 US military dead and dozens of Afghans. The suicide bombing was followed by a shootout between Islamic State gunmen at the gate, where the night before there had been 5,000 Afghans and potentially Americans seeking access to the airport to flee then that the Taliban were taking the country as President Joe Biden stuck to the decision to withdraw his troops after two decades.

In his song, Ondrasik uses lyrics that seem directly critical of the withdrawal plan. Watch Song On Youtube

Blood On My Hands Lyrics

Got blood on my hands
Got blood on my hands
And I don’t understand
What’s happening

There’s blood on these hands
And still American’s
Left to the Taliban
Now how’s that happening?

Winkin’ Blinken
Can’t you look me in the eyes
Willy Milley
Tell me when did you decide
This we’ll defend
Your sacred motto
Now means… never mind

Hands

Got blood on my hands
Got blood on my hands
Flag of the Taliban
Over Afghanistan

General Austin is there no honor in shame?
Can you spell Bagram without the letters in blame?
Did Uncle Joe stick a drip in your veins?

Hands

I can’t hear her scream if she’s not, she’s not
She’s not on TV

I can’t hear him scream if he’s not, he’s not
He’s not on TV

To every Afghan ally that we left behind
Every child who won’t know freedom
Faces covered and blind
As for this American promise
Now… shit in the Fire

Hands

Got blood on our hands
Hey Joe, just one American
Asking what’s happening
