Metallica - Disposable Heroes Lyrics

Bodies fill the fields I see
hungry heroes end
No one to play soldier now
no one to pretend
Running blind through killing fields
bred to kill them all
Victim of what said should be
A servant ‘til I fall

Soldier boy
made of clay
Now an empty shell
Twenty one
only son
But he served us well
Bred to kill
not to care
Do just as we say
Finished here
greetings death
He’s yours to take away

Back to the front
You will do what I say
when I say
Back to the front
You will die when I say
you must die
Back to the front
You coward
You servant
You blindman

Barking of machinegun fire
does nothing to me now
Sounding of the clock that ticks
get used to it somehow
More a man
more stripes you bare
glory seeker trends
Bodies fill the fields I see
The slaughter never ends

Soldier boy
made of clay
Now an empty shell
Twenty one
only son
But he served us well
Bred to kill
not to care
Do just as we say
Finished here
greetings death
He’s yours to take away

Back to the front
You will do what I say
when I say
Back to the front
You will die when I say
you must die
Back to the front
You coward
You servant
You blindman

Why
am I dying?
Kill
have no fear
Lie
live off lying
Hell
hell is here

I was born for dying

Life planned out before my birth
nothing could I say
Had no chance to see myself
molded day by day
Looking back I realize
nothing have I done
Left to die with only friend
Alone I clench my gun

Soldier boy
made of clay
Now an empty shell
Twenty one
only son
But he served us well
Bred to kill
not to care
Do just as we say
Finished here
greetings death
He’s yours to take away

Back to the front
You will do what I say
when I say
Back to the front
You will die when I say
you must die
Back to the front
You coward
You servant
You blindman

Back to the front
