lyrics

This grey morning is bitter and hollow
The things they said; "it’s your duty to your country."
I dont even know why
So this morning I say goodbye

To my family my friends
My son you’ll be the man of the house now
My dear I promise I will come back

This is so hard to say
But I'm afraid that I have to clear my mind and walk away
Two hours ‘til the ship sails off
Drink after drink
The bourbon is bitter

In the taverns dark corner
I swallow my sadness and fear
Goodbye my darling I love you so
My son I will always be proud of you

In my dreams I can touch your skin
Feel your breath and see you smile
This is what makes me go on

This is what I value the most
My memories are only captured in my dreams
I'm not doing this for the flag
I'm doing this for you.

As I capture the image of faces
In this group of men who are forced to fight for their lives
Bomb shells and dust float through the air
I see a girl, maybe seven years old
I stare at her, she stares at me
We share a picture, a picture of home

So hear these stories of fear and horror
In the end I feel so damn hollow
For the people i've killed, women and children
I just want to die
I want to die

Please forgive me for my mistakes
I hope you know that I did this for you

Here I stand
Buried in shame
With my useless medals
I am not the one who should be blamed
Or am I?
