A child won’t mind if you don’t teach it.
Tell it lies and it just believes you.
That does make it all ok.
The child will grow up some day.

Now the boy is taller than you are.
He’s got your hatred a gun and a star.
He’s going to go across the sea.
To kill some other boy like him.

No raindrop falls to dry the day
No flower grows to feel the shade.
No planet spins to float away.
Why do we walk a pointless way.

Tears in his as the bombs keep falling.
A summer mind quickly moves to autumn.
A hundred years are in his eyes.
A hundred lives put to bed with his sythe.

No raindrop falls to dry the day
No flower grows to feel the shade.
No planet spins to float away.
Why do we walk a pointless way.

He comes home he’s a great survivor.
Put in his hand another star worth a fiver.
He’s got to make his own way back,
To love and life, to a job, to a smile.

Well he lives in a corner sponsored by the state
He can’t sleep he can’t stay awake
He feels the guilt from the pain he caused
And the pain from the guilt that wasn’t his fault
Wearing a sign saying veteran of war
With those medals of his rusted into his soul.
Wearing the boots that ran through jungles of fire.
No fireman’s hose can quench the burns.
Of a mind and a soul that no longer desires,
To remember his days as a boy with a gun.
