Don't Die a Martyr for Me

Language: English

I met a young girl she’s only nineteen
Liberal-minded pacifist and green
I want to get her showing my courage
But she keeps saying don’t go to the siege

Don’t die a martyr for me

I wanted to be a suicide bomber
But she changed my mind I fell in love with her
She would turn me down if I joined the corps
And she keeps saying let’s make peace not war

Don’t die for me
Don’t fight for me

I laid the guns down follow me my friend
And don’t wait until the war comes to an end
Now the sky’s covered with flying peacebirds
And I will always remember her words
