Soldier

When you get older your thoughts get a tendency to turn towards the past. Once your thoughts are reaching back to your own birth that might mean your last day on earth has finally arrived, I guess. Anyway, I was a conscientious objector in my youth (had to look that one up - someone who refuses to enter the army). Somehow this might have inspired today's spontaneous lyrics...


I fought for freedom
I fought for fame
for my home country
and for its claims

the more I fought the more
I helped advance insanity
each single day I fought
I fought against humanity

I fought the rebels
I fought the jews
fought foreign armies
fought Cree and Sioux

the more I fought the more
I helped advance insanity
each single day I fought
I fought against humanity

a soldier by profession
what else could I do
war is my obsession
tomorrow I'll fight you

the more I fight the more
I help advance insanity
each single day I fight
I fight against humanity
