Oh Soldier my Soldier

 

Oh Soldier my Soldier

            Empty and alone

            Friends back home

            Far from peace

            Gambled by dice

           

            Chances are priced

            Tagged by death

            Time counts down

            Hope frowns

           

            Just dog tags

            Dead body bags

            Those who lived

            Once a whole

 

            Now just pieces

            Fragments of imagination

            I saw you

            A ghost

 

            Haunting your host

            Give me away

            Let my fate

            Be time date

 

            Upon this day

            May I die

            Freed from pain

            No more games

 

            Oh soldier my soldier
