MikelWJ - That's War Lyrics



MikelWJ - That's War


I remember seeing a poster, a paper of propaganda.
It said war was heroic and something that we could handle.
So I signed up for my country, the stars and the stripes.
Soon I left my house, my kids, my friends and wife.
This isn't what I expected at all I guess you could say.
Most times, sleepless nights followed by bombs in the day.
It's hard to take when you see all of your friends die
In the trenches right next to the place where you lie!
Our leader gives us the order; it's time we charge the line.

No one wants to go first since we know that it means dying.
We start to run across no-man's land with heads down.
Bullets fly by, followed by the sound of mortar rounds.
By the time we reach the other side, half of us are dead.
Jump into their trench, fist to fist and gun to head.
At that point I saw a German soldier, looked barely twenty one.
I killed him cold blooded; the evil deed had been done...

It's sad how the world thinks that it's all okay...
It's sad how I don't know if I'll live another day.
On the front lines of war you can never be sure.
But I guess that's war, I guess that's war.
It's sad how the world thinks that it's all okay...
It's sad how I don't know if I'll live another day.
On the front lines of war you can never be sure.
But I guess that's war, I guess that's war.

Dear Anna, it's been three years too long.
And if you get this letter, it means that I'm gone.
The holes we live in are barely 6 feet deep,
For many they are the perfect grave, sadly.
All I hear is machine guns and all I smell is human blood.
All I feel is cold, and my only real friend now's my gun.
The wet ground we sleep on makes me miss my warm bed.
I forgot why I'm in this war; it's messing with my head.
They call it shellshock, and I've seen it happen first hand.
I've seen comrades' loose limbs, or the ability stand.
Then there are the charges, I've never seen anything as bad.
Hundreds of men dying at once, it's driving me mad!
There's poison gas, and that's something I won't talk about.
They said that we'd be home soon, but that's something I doubt.
The battle isn't changing, we're making zero progress.
This is the field where I will die for my country I guess...
