Bound For Glory – Unknown Soldier lyrics

You gave you life in a foreign land
Did anybody ever give a damn
You fought for democracy never knowing why
That it's not your land, why should you die?
You became a pawn in the governments game
Giving your life for someone elses gain
Your number was picked, you answered the call
While some had given little you had given all

Rest in peace unknown soldier
The guns are now silent, the war is over
There's no more bombs, no more flames
To die was your only way out of this game
Rest in peace unknown soldier
The guns are now silent, the war is over
The jungles are now quiet, the fallen etched in stone
One day we know you'll make it back home

Sent off to battle to fight a politicians war
Still never knowing what you were fighting for
You were just another number, just another screw
Out to protect the interest of the chosen few
You fought pitched battles, facing constant heat
Now the enemy is living on your old street
The one world government opened the door and let them in
While leading men to slaughter that they couldn't win

(Repeat Chorus)

You still don't know if your name is unkown
You don't know if you ever made it home
Your family doesn't know where you lie
They haven't a clue to whether you're dead or alive
Unknown soldier in a cold shallow grave
We know you were courageous,
We know you were brave
You gave you life in a foreign land
I want you to know I give a damn

(Repeat Chorus)
