"Soldier" as written by and Andrew Mckellar Richard Wouters....
I take aim from the kitchen window
I take aim from up and down below
I take aim from the tree in your backyard
I fall asleep but I'm always on guard
I take the shots but I have no authority
I take the shots but I'm not guilty
I'm just a soldier in another war
It doesn't matter who I'm fighting for

I don't stop till my country says so
I don't stop till the end of the show
I don't know why I hold this gun

I'm just a soldier
Fighting for someone
I have a wife and a big ol' family
I have a wife and she's waiting at home for me
I cleanse my sins as I walk through that door
It doesn't matter what I've done before

I don't stop till my mission is done
I don't stop till they tell me I've won
I don't know what I'm fighting for
I'm just a soldier aiming for one more

My family they cover me
My family they cover me
All I see is what I believe
I am not guilty, no
I am not guilty

I don't stop not even in my dreams
I don't stop seeing things that I've seen
I don't know why I raise this hell
I'm just a soldier fighting for someone else

    General CommentReally cool song. There are so many anti-war political songs out there and this is the first one that I've heard that actually points to someone else other that big government for being responsible. We can't just always blame our leaders for taking us into wars that we complain about, we also have to hold ourselves responsible, all of us how sign up to support our country, it doesn't mean we have to support it unconditionally. This sentiment may have been responsible for the horrible way I hear some of the Vietnam vets were treated upon their return, so I understand there is another extreme that you can swing to, but it is still a refreshing song to hear. Really great guys to, extremely nice, they will hang out with the audience after the show, at least at small venues.
