On the fifth I go to war.

Sign on the dotted line.
Raise your right hand.
Leave home for 12 weeks,
Learn the basics at school.
Work day after day, earn your pay
Be ready at all times.
Your name is on the list,
You leave on the fifth.
Off to war I go,
With dreams of coming home
On foreign land,
Fighting the Taliban
Watch as friends die
under fire at night.
No knows if we will survive,
I can no longer cry
Return home broken.
No one to turn to
Have dreams ever night.
Volunteer for war
Don't want to come back.
