lyrics

Ten long years since the war began
Stand up take it like a man
Body count increasing still
Little soldier, take this pill
Hunker down, a storm is coming
Heard it on the radio
Wounded, broke, bereft of all hope
Deeper than you'll ever know

These wounds aren't who I am
Take me back where the fight began
Bitter taste, grit my teeth
Come on, man, let's show the world what we can be

Outside things are getting dangerous
Dead guy living underneath the dirt
Down time, I know my fate is sealed
Gun shy, used as a human shield

Death sentence from the puppeteer
Slowly we both disappear
Punctured lung as I'm kicked awake
Lady fortune's on the take
Almost dead but still deluded
Sense of humour, bulletproof
Powers higher up colluded
Little soldier's on to you

These wounds aren't who I am
Take me back where the fight began
Bitter taste, grit my teeth
Come on, man, let's show the world what we can be

Outside things are getting dangerous
Dead guy living underneath the dirt
Down time, I know my fate is sealed
Gun shy, used as a human shield
