lyrics

The old man's face turns cold & confused
As the kids play with their ball by the door
Those play fight screams turn cruel in his head
With the fear of some settling score

For countries and kings, will call them to fight
For the glory and God on each side
Aged 16 years and not a hint of hindsight
To the call of duty he rides

From wall to wall the sky's in a spin
And the lives that he loves hang on a string
But covering eyes & ears doesn't keep out the din
Once you seen the human wrecking ball swing

For countries and kings, will call them to fight
For glory and God on each side
Aged 16 years not a hint of hindsight
To the call of duty he rides

Bloodshot flickered eyes on a TV flickered screen
See a litany of lies to the brim
The steel wheel's turned by a momentous machine
That rolls out a hollow man's kin

For countries and kings, still call them to fight
For glory and God on each side
Aged 16 years not a hint of hindsight
To the call of duty they ride
