    I think that the line "spent my time there by the shore" could mean that immediately after getting off the boat he got shot and his corpse layed on the shore throughout the whole war, which is the only thing he has done.
    This is the only thing I had a few doubts about, the rest of the lyrics is pretty clear. It's about the cruel hand of war who takes everyone to win, no matter the cause, no matter how many will die.
