Kill for your country

die for their sins

don't mind if they don't mind you

just do what they say.

Watch out for the enemy

and I'm not talking about them

Watch out for the psychopaths

who order your fate.

You're a soldier now,a murderer with a degree

You're taking lives with a permission

You're a misery machine.

Fight for your right to live in guilt

Fight for the glory of living a life insane.

Widows and orphans drink on your name

Death appears useless since you've taken his job.

And while you're laying bleeding with one foot to the grave

don't feel stupid now

you did it for your country

you did it for your creed

only they don't give a damn

and you really did it for that green paper thing.
