Plastic Soldiers

Go now fake soldier and run like she told ya  

You're fading from the light.  

 
You're out in the cold  
 
In the trenches so bold.  
 
You're fighting for your life.  
 
 
So, gaze not upon. The things you can't see.  
 
You're leaders intentions, mean nothing to me.  
 
 
You fight, you rise, you fall, you cry.  
 
 
you hate so badly but, do not know why.  
 
You're mounting the precipitous  
 
With best intentions but,  
 
paving your demise.  
 
 
 
I,  
 
I will not adjure.  
 
You,  
 
What are YOU fighting for?  
 
 
 
March on fake soldier.  
 
Speak now of your fears.  
 
What is it they told ya?  
 
Was it all you wanted to hear?
