lyrics

Gaïa Sin Phonic - Lost Soldier

Verse 1
Seeing human aggression
on every corner
Finding no signs of values
No one to care about
environmental issues
Lost in the world degradation
No hero by our side
We face this world alone
The knights of our
conscience are gone
But the dreams remain
They have managed to survive
This world… This pain…
Deep inside!!!

Verse 2
What can we possibly say?
To a young man
trapped in confusion
Whose only wish
is to change this reality
Get a chance to be somebody
The offer he had yesterday
Just seemed like the only way
Finally, he will prove he is worthy
Suddenly, he could make a change

Pre-chorus
They told him he could be
a hero for his country
Live a life full of adventure
Helping the ones in need
Without knowing what was hidden
under their hypnotizing speech
He signed all the papers
And joined them in vain!

Chorus
Strongly motivated
Trying to make them proud
Suddenly his life is changing
Every morning, out for training
Its time to break free
Strong and ready
He found a way
to leave his past behind
where it belongs

Solo guitar/Verse 3
And after all that
he’s been through
Nothing seemed to get to him
Is superior insults
had no effect or so few…
Showing strength
to gain some respect
While every day
they raise the edge
But he believes in the choice
he has made for himself

Pre-chorus
They told him he could be
a hero for his country
Live a life full of adventure
Helping the ones in need!
Without knowing what was hidden
under their hypnotizing speech
He signed all the papers
(and joined them in vain)

Chorus 2
Slowly understanding
Everything behind
By the time he ended training
His point of view had changed
Its time to take the plane
Because war can’t wait
The battlefield revealed
the truth to him
After-chorus
Its not like they said it would be
In order to survive
He became the thing
he swore to destroy
NO enemies but
lost soldiers like me
Trying to stay alive
Then who’s to blame?
For the death
of a thousand soldiers

please don’t forget about me
try, try, try, try,
Not to forget about me

Solo guitar/Chorus 3
Sadly realizing
He is just a number
That no one will remember
Even if he lives, will he recover?
Too late to turn back
To end those visions
He’s shooting with eyes closed

After-chorus 2
Lost in the blood
of the Warfield
He managed to survive
But some real injuries
where left inside
NO enemies but
lost soldiers like me
And I killed them all
The choice has been made
And the politicians
are delighted
