A SOLDIERS STORY

I really don’t understand my place in this life

Not involved, single, no sign of a wife

They have the nerve to ask why I look so mean

As I drink down some hot water from a dirty canteen

I’m a skilled soldier in so many ways

For the few shitty dollars this Army pays

Dig faster dig deeper rings in the back of my head

Some soldiers never sleep when they get into bed

Wake up, go back to sleep, INSPECTION TIME

Suck down that food and get back in line

I’m told to do things and I do them real well

When my squad leader checks it all looks like hell

If another war were to ever break out

I’ll carry the best weapon in my mind theres no doubt

I’ld search for the rascist the liar the cheater

I’ld turn around to find my squad leader

For all the pain, misery and the the blood that I’ve shed

I’ld shoot that squad leader until he was dead

It might not have reasons for some things that I do

But I’m sure he now knows I had feelings too
