lyrics

I've been eight months in-country
Can't believe that I am still here
Missed home for my birthday
Oh well maybe I'll make it next year
And it's not just the sand in my eyes that makes them dry
But I can't show any fear

I'm a volunteer

They had so many reasons
Now they don't seem to be very clear
And high-minded opinions from civilians
Who'll never get near
But it's not just their tricks and lies and money ties
That make a soldier appear

I'm a volunteer

Now I'm finding out what this thing is all about
Not for freedom, god or changing things
Not for heroes, girls or earning wings
Not for bugles, duty, flags or kings
Not for right at all
Not for right at all

His vocal nuance and adept arrangements make for a compelling listen. ... more
