about

A veteran's lament.

The first single from the album The World Is Going To End Tomorrow originally released in November 2019. A nasty little number. Punchy hard rock. Deals with undervaluing sacrifices made by people in times of crisis.

No bad words.

lyrics

I walked into your nightmare and hero was my name
I chose to fight for freedom but it was just a game
You sent me to another country - I can't tell which is which

I left my brother dying with no arms in a ditch

I sacrificed my blood I did it in your name
I sacrificed my name I did just what I should
I sacrificed by blood I sacrificed my life
I sacrificed my life I sacrificed my blood

I ain't got no money for food - I ain't got no money for rent
All that money you gave me - it has all been spent
You said you would remember the fighters for the free
My story ain't nothing special - there's plenty more like me

I sacrificed my blood I did it in your name
I sacrificed my name i did just what I should
I sacrificed by blood I sacrificed my life
I sacrificed my life I sacrificed my blood

I sacrificed my blood
I sacrificed my blood

I sacrificed my blood I did it in your name
I sacrificed my name I did just what I should
I sacrificed by blood I sacrificed my life
I sacrificed my life I sacrificed my blood
