For God, For Country or For War
Baldwin, tell me how do you feel
You fought for your country
for God and for war,
now your heart tells you that can't be real.
So you tell me your story from beginning to end
all the blood and the guts and the gore
will you tell all the people
about the people you killed,
not for God, but for country and war
Baldwin, tell me what did you brother say,
when you left those peoples out in the fields.
Did you show him your medals?
Did you show him your guns?
Did you show him picture of the people you killed?
Not for God, but for country and war
Baldwin, tell me why are you in this place?
When you stood up for justice, your country replied
by throwing it back in your face.
When you tell me your story
are you making amends for all of the hatred you saw?
Will you tell all the people about the people that cry out for a little mercy?
You see, you fought not for God and not for country
but for war.
