Dog Tags

Fought for my stripes
Prowling the stage and
In those lights
I was supposed to be
A gaunt and pale
Axe-wielding soldier
Fronting a pack
Of salivating devil dogs
Back from Hell to preach
The evils of war
On every front imaginable
I could never shake
The hypocrite
The blood lust
The abomination
In my rear-view mirror
Always much closer
Than it seemed

In truth
I have amplified
A death wish on
Humanity's inhumanities
For so long now
It would be obscene
To pretend
I have any interest
In saving somebody
