Little boy
Searching for a purpose
To belong somewhere
And become a man
Who would have thought the sacrifice?

Little boy
Shoving a rifle in your hand
Let your troubles fire away
With a pull of a trigger
What have you done?

Little boy
Fighting for your nation
To protect those you love
While making something of yourself
Where are you heading?

Little boy
Awarding you with medals that shine
The weight such a nuisance
Stained with blood of strangers
When is it over?

Little boy
Dying in a trench
Justify yourself
By praying this was the right thing
Why the cost?
