lyrics

I signed my name on the dotted line
More than happy to serve my time
To make a stand for freedom and democracy
To save the world, to keep us free

I joined the army to do what's right
And they trained me to win the fight
I marched for miles, learned to shoot a gun
I learned to fight, to get the job done

And I pulled the trigger a thousand times
Never a once thought it was a crime
'Cause I'm trained to kill the enemy
All in the name of Democracy

But the very first time I shot a man
Is the very moment I came to understand
We're not fighting for democracy
We're fighting for profit, that's our policy

I pulled the trigger for the thousandth time
And then I killed a man
I pulled the trigger for the very last time
Because I killed a man
Because I killed a man

They send us all off to fight a war
To uphold the oath that we swore
They send us to fight for uncle Sam
When will we learn that it's all a sham?

'Cause we drop bombs and cause misery
Nothing to do with Democracy
We go and fight and kill the common folk
'Cause war is for profit, what a joke

I pulled the trigger for the thousandth time
And then I killed a man
I pulled the trigger for the very last time
Because I killed a man
I pulled the trigger for the thousandth time
And then I killed a man
I pulled the trigger for the very last time
Because I killed a man
Because I killed a man
