​Fackt

This song is by Aheads and appears on the album Aheads (1981).

Fighting wars that you know nothing about
But you're told there's a reason
So you never ever doubt
Looking around as your friends all fall
Never ever knowing why they died at all

Soldier, soldier won't you ever ask why
Soldier, soldier you're the one that dies
Soldier, soldier give up your kids and wife
Soldier, soldier they don't own your life, no!

They put a gun in your hands
Tell you to kill
Don't trust one of them till he's dead still
But pause to think
Of how the other side feels
They've the same problem
They've been told to kill

Soldier, soldier won't you ever ask why
Soldier, soldier you're the one that dies
Soldier, soldier give up your kids and wife
Soldier, soldier they don't own your life, no!

First world war was just the first verse
And now the tensions mounting
It only takes a word
And your higher archy say that's absurd
But the present day affairs
Are the beginning of the third

Then the second world war
Was the second fucking verse
And your higher archy say that's absurd
And the tensions mounting
It only takes a word
Cause the present day affairs
Are the beginning of the third
