Kathy Mar – Man Of War lyrics

I am a Dorsai and I've learned a grisly skill
They've taught me how to win a war 10, 000 ways to kill
And all the vicious weapons to be used each time I fight
Now I've become a weapon of such fearsome might

Chorus: I am no soldier, I'm a man of war
I am no soldier, I'm a man of war

My code is my life and my duty is my soul
The filling of our contract is my only kind of goal
I go where they tell me and I fight the ones they say
And none of us would think to ever run away

Chorus

We fight and we march to the mercenaries' drum
And many wars are ended by the rumor that we've come
We take to the field and the enemy all flies
I've seen them run in terror from the look in my eyes

Chorus

We land on some planet and we fight until we fall
Or till the war is ended and we hear them sound recall
They say we are bloodless, that we're nothing but machines
But still they beg to hire us when they have the means

Chorus

The years count up in kills and the battles still go on
And none of us believe that we will see a peaceful dawn
And it's aeons of victory to minutes of defeat
But I'm waiting for the day that you will make us obsolete
I'm praying for the day when you will make us obsolete

Words and music: Kathy Mar
