Your troop has landed
And you’re on the run
You’re out there stranded
You only got your gun

For peace and planet
You know it’s not for fun
You never planned it
You were not the one

This is not an old war story
Like they always told
This is a nightmare to behold

So in a row they line up to die
Breath in the air
For just one last time
And try to be strong
While their mothers cry
So in a row they line up to die

It seemed so easy
Cause life was hard
With hope so fleeting
You let down your guard
When you were younger
With hope and pride
Now in a place where
It’s kill or die

This is not an old war story
Like they always told
This is a nightmare to behold

So in a row they line up to die
Breath in the air
For just one last time
And try to be strong
While their mothers cry
So in a row they line up to die

Looking through my lens
I see him looking back at me
We both have no choice
It’s our destiny
Cause we both came to fight
And now we live in fear
Life will be cut short
Death is creeping near

This is not an old war story
Like they always told
This is a nightmare to behold

So in a row they line up to die
Breath in the air
For just one last time
And try to be strong
While their mothers cry
So in a row they line up to die

    Song MeaningSo I'm pretty positive this song is about war and a troop's thoughts being sprung into the battle field, killing and fighting. It's actually a very sad song especially;

    Looking through my lens
    I see him looking back at me
    We both have no choice
    It�s our destiny
    Cause we both came to fight
    And now we live in fear
    Life will be cut short
    Death is creeping near

    (About him getting ready to kill another man, on the otherside. Thinking about how he knows on the inside, both of them don't want to, but they have to since it's been piled in both of their brains that if one doesn't shoot, the other will. Whichever one gets killed, or if they both get killed I'm sure is up for interpretation.)

    Or you never know this could all be a metaphor for something deeper!
