lyrics

Hero of war

He said son
Have you seen the world
What would you say
If I said that you could
Just carry this gun
You'll even get paid
I said well that sounds pretty good

Black leather boots
Spit shine so bright
They cut off my hair
But it looks alright
We marched and we sang
And we all became friends
As we learned how to fight

A hero of war
Yeah that's what I'll be
And when I come home
They'll be damn proud of me
I'll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
It's a flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

I kicked open the door
I yelled my commands
The children they cried
But I got my man
They took him away
With a bag over his face
From his family and friends

They took off his clothes
They twisted his hands
I told them to stop
Then I joined in
And we beat beat him with guns
And batons not just once
But again and again

'Cause I'm a hero of war
That's what I'll be
And when I come home
They'll be damn proud of me
I'll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
It's a flag that I love
It's a flag that I trust

She walked
Through smoke and through haze
I asked her to stop
I begged her to stay
But she pressed on
So I lifted my gun
And fired away

All the shells
They jumped through the smoke
And into the ground
Where the blood had now soaked
And she collapsed
With a flag in her hand
A flag as white as snow

Now I'm a hero of war
Is that what they see
Just medals and scars
So damn proud of me
I brought home that flag
Now it gathers dust
But it's a flag that I love
It's the only flag I trust

He said son
Have you seen the world
What would you say
If I said that you could...
