WE FOUGHT FOR EACH OTHER

They gave the orders and I pulled the trigger,
I pulled the trigger I did,
A little trained robot a little bit bigger,
Than a younger innocent kid.
You can hate me or love me make an excuse,
But I did as a puppet would do,
Just a soldier in battle who’d never refuse,
To kill with a negative view.
We fought for each other comrades and friends;
We fought for the blokes who were there,
With never a thought for national trends,
For our leaders not even a care.
Few will recover though the battles are over
We will always be counting the cost,
And though we may live a future in clover
We will remember them all that were lost
