I have suffered for you
I have sweat for you
I have shed blood for you
I have shed tears for you

As my comrades lay dying for you
My family suffered for you
They have shed tears for you
They live in constant fear and worry

For me, for you
Will you wrap me in a flag and
Call me a hero too when it’s my turn?
Will you praise patriotism at my funeral?

Will you shout this is the cost of freedom?
History assures us killing breeds killing
Hide it behind a mask of morality if you can
War parades only selfish intentions
