A Soldier's Creed Lyrics

8. A Soldier's Creed (4:12)
I wasn’t put hear to eat no fucking dirt
Ain’t about to kiss nobody’s ass
You pay me now cause we won’t be here later
Think for myself and you call me trash

I wasn’t put here to do your dirty work
Swallow my pride, forget it
You want my life’s work, my total dedication
Death in return, forget it

Democracy sweet sounding word
Liberty, hand to hand
Feed them lies, no body counts
Make them fight for the land

Make them think that victory’s near
Even when we fall
Let them not see the casualties
That our deceit has spawned

[Chorus:]
Believe in no one but yourself
Trust in no one cursed is man
Why must we kill?
Why must we die?
Your logic reasons make me sick
And you’ll cause man’s demise

Never will I surrender
As long as I have the will to resist
Never will I surrender
As long as breath flows through me

My country ‘tis of thee
Has fooled us once again
Believed in you and you lied to me
Running smooth as planned

You say your fight’s for freedom
Land where our fathers died
Financing justice
While unfed babies cry

[Chorus]

South of the border you pry and instigate
Looking for another war and now you’ve found the place
It’s their trouble, their beliefs then why are we involved
Seeking war with bated breath look at the damage you’ve caused
Home of the brave, land of the free
Politicians help them selves
Cause they sure not helping me

[Chorus]
