Oh Camil, tell me how do you feel?
You fought for your country
For God and for war,
Now your heart tells you that can't be real.
So you tell me your story from beginning to end
All the blood and the guts and the gore
Will you tell all the people
'bout the people you killed,
Not for God, but for country and war?

Oh! Camil, tell me what did you mother say,
When you left those people out in the fields,
Rotting along with the hay?
Did you show her your medals?
Did you show her your guns?
Did you show her the ears that you wore?
Did you show her a picture of the people you killed
Not for God, but for country and war?

Oh! Camil, tell me why are you in this place?
When you stood up for justice your country replied
By throwing it back in your face.
When you tell me your story
Are you making amends for all of the hatred you saw?
Will you tell all the people about the people that cry out for God
Not for country or war?
