Lyrics

A wretched outcast with no point of view
what could I do just military service
I carry out the powerful vulgarian view
I scatter gloom
do as I say or I'll scatter you
but no! you can't blame me!
I'm just an innocent soldier!
there would be no war if not for me
I'm just a sweet little soldier
no, no, no, you can't blame me!
I'm just an innocent soldier
Give me an order - I'll blow up a border
Give me an order - I'll blow up your daughter

Call me brave, call me a peace-making hero
call me anything except ... what I am
from a class without
I haven't got a clue
what the war is about
I haven't got a clue
have you?
but no! you can't blame me!
I'm just an innocent soldier!
there would be no war if not for me
I'm just a sweet little soldier
no, no, no, you can't blame me!
after all, I'm just honor-mad cannon-fodder
honor-mad cannon-fodder
honor-mad cannon-fodder
honor-mad cannon-fodder
honor-mad cannon-fodder
honor-mad cannon-fodder
honor-mad cannon-fodder
honor-mad cannon-fodder
honor-mad cannon-fodder
 
Duty done by the moment at hand
I am answerable only to Jesus
and with the grace of God I will die in my own bed
if you wonder what's in my head
it's just a hatred for all human life
when I lose mine, my mother will say:
"he died doing the job he loved"
but I died with a bullet to the forehead!
that wasn't the job I loved!
that wasn't the job I loved!
that wasn't the job I loved!

"It's funny how
the war goes on
without our John
without our John
it's funny how
the war goes on
without our John
without our John"
