40 Dead Men

The Cold Stares 2021 Single Song from the album Heavy Shoes

Lyrics

I got a letter
Not feeling better
7 ways to kill your brother
I gotta get on home before I kill another

40 men dead in a field of red
40 men dead shot in head

Captain my captain
I need a way back home
Quartermaster heed my words…
I’m gonna burn these fields like the streets of Rome

40 men dead in a field of red
40 men dead shot in head

I laid down my rifle, and I laid down my sword
I ain’t gonna fight your war, anymore
Said I laid down pistol, and I swore to the lord
I ain’t gonna fight their wars, anymore
I ain’t gonna fight your wars, anymore.
