After the War

This song is by Gary Moore and appears on the album After the War (1989).

So many came before you
The prisoners of fate
A history of bloodshed
A legacy of hate
But where will you be standing
When the battles have been won?
Inside your lonely fortress
The battles just begun

After the war
Who will you be fighting for?
After the war is over
After the fire
Is burning to its dying embers
After the war

A letter from the draft board
Put pain to all your dreams
You're just another number
In military schemes
They marched you in a uniform
You wore against your will
With lies of hope and glory
They taught you how to kill

After the war
Who will you be fighting for?
After the war is over
After the fire
Is burning to its dying embers

After the war
You thought you'd be a hero
After all that you survived
If hell was meant for heroes
Then surely you've arrived
Ah

After the war
After the war

After the war
Who will you be fighting for?
After the war
Who will you be fighting for?
After the fire
Is burning to its dying embers
After the war
