For our soldiers- because you, above all, have been wronged most. May God bless you and keep through this insanity.
 



Soldier Man... 

you thought you saw 

you thought you knew 

Just what is was 

you were getting into 

************** 

Soldier Man... 

you were so young 

you were so new 

Oh how could you know 

What you were getting into? 

************** 

Soldier Man... 

you listened to the lies 

you took them as truth 

But you really didn't know 

What you were getting into 

************** 

Soldier Man... 

you were so confident 

But you had no clue 

How hard it was 

This thing you were getting into 

************** 

Soldier Man... 

you trained so hard 

For the Red, White and Blue 

But they didn't tell you 

What you were getting into 

************** 

Soldier Man... 

you would fight for freedom 

you would fight for truth 

Your purpose, they said 

For this war you were getting into 

************** 

Soldier Man... 

What they didn't tell you
