The Family Has Been Informed

Pick up your gun and take a careful aim
Pretend you’re still at home, it’s just a game
Far across the foreign land you’ll find
The enemy’s the same, he’s humankind

St. Christopher sits cold upon your chest
The medals shining proud upon your breast
A soldier from the very day you’re born
And now the family have been informed

You dreamt of being a hero all your life
Decorated and a trophy wife
The friends you knew would all look up in awe
But none of them have seen the things you saw

St. Christopher sits cold upon your chest
The medals shining proud upon your breast
A soldier from the very day you’re born
And now the family have been informed

Fight and kill, put a flag upon the hill
Kill with bombs and love, you know the drill
The innocent must pay the price as well
Between the space of heaven and bloody hell

St. Christopher sits cold upon your chest
The medals shining proud upon your breast
A soldier from the very day you’re born
And now the family have been informed

You fought your war, you’re never coming home
You left this earth, your spirit free to roam
But spare a thought for those you left unborn
Their families will never be informed

And now the family have been informed
