Soldier


A "classic" hard rock / heavy metal antiwar song..

Personnel: Mike Tramp - vocals, Vito Bratta - guitars, James Lomenzo - bass, Greg D'Angelo - drums
I got the call one summer night
He said you're on tomorrow's flight

My mother cried my sister too
My father said: – I'm proud of you – (~Yes I am, son..)

I can't believe it's true
We're going after 'who'
And still I wish that I just knew
What are we fighting for ?
When the price we pay is endless war
What are we fighting for ?
When all we need is peace..

Though I'm blind to what I see
They tell me there's an enemy

I know I gotta get outta here
Insanity is drawing near (~I'm gonna crazy)

Can't take it anymore
I've knocked on Heaven's door
No I'm not dying for this war
What are we fighting for ?
When the price we pay is endless war
What are we fighting for ?
when all we need is peace
What are we fighting for ?
Can't we learn from what we've done before
What are we fighting for ?
When no one ever wins
in war

A young man returns from war
Where he didn't know
What he was fighting for
The streets remained the same
but people'd changed
The medals on his chest
Didn't mean a thing..
A tear dropped from the corner of his eye,
Did he come home?..


My grandpa died in Normandy
My brother is still in Vietnam (~He ain't comin' home)

I know there's nothing good in war
I know 'cause I've been there before(~Oh yes, I have)

So what am I gonna do
I know this war ain't through
And still I wish that I just knew
What are we fighting for ?
When the price we pay is endless war
What are we fighting for ?
when all we need is peace
What are we fighting for ?
Can't we learn form what we've done before
What are we fighting for ?
When no one ever wins


What are we fighting for ?
When the price we pay is endless war
What are we fighting for ?
when all we need is peace
What are we fighting for ?
Can't we learn form what we've done before
What are we fighting for ?
When no one ever wins
in war,
in war…
