Oh Soldier my Soldier


Oh Soldier my Soldier

            Empty and alone

            Friends back home

            Far from peace

            Gambled by dice


            Chances are priced

            Tagged by death

            Time counts down

            Hope frowns


            Just dog tags

            Dead body bags

            Those who lived

            Once a whole


            Now just pieces

            Fragments of imagination

            I saw you

            A ghost


            Haunting your host

            Give me away

            Let my fate

            Be time date


            Upon this day

            May I die

            Freed from pain

            No more games


            Oh soldier my soldier
