  • Inside his mind it's '69
    Somewhere in Vietnam
    Yes, in his head there's millions dead
    From guns, grenades, and bombs
    For he's the one that feels the thunder
    A prisoner of the times
    Just trapped alone in a mental shock
    And wanting just to die

    As evil unfolds before the eyes
    The horror of killing another man
    One nation under God

    For all around him there is pain
    So is the wage of sin
    The memories on the battlefield
    Are buried deep within
    For now the future's only past
    And broken is this man
    Eternally his life was lost
    While fighting for his land

    As evil unfolds before the eyes
    The horror of killing another man
    One nation under God

    War! Forever there is war! For there is war!
    He can thank the USA
    For the way he feels today
    For there is war! There is war!

    I see them all around me
    They're all living just to die
    Just trying to make their way
    And moving on
    But nothing stops the torment
    Of those days in Vietnam
    As the battle in their minds
    Is raging on

    Shellshocked mindless madmen
    For deep inside there is war!

    They had the strength of courage
    And they had the will to fight
    But in the end they learned
    Just how to die
    And as they live the terror
    Of a time so long ago
    It's now too late
    To save their wasted lives

    And so again the music plays
    The battle hymn of war
    For there is war!
    And every night within the dark
    Those nightmares comes again
    For there is war!

    War!

    So here's the lesson to be learned
    Amongst this grief and pain
    And that's in life there's nothing
    Worth the hell of war again
    So leave the courage to the fire
    And vengeance will stay free
    And liberty will carry on
    For all eternity

    As evil unfolds before the eyes
    The horror of killing another man
    One nation under God

    War! Forever there is war! For there is war!
