It's January 1970
Do you remember me
You put me on a boat across the sea,
In the name of victory
But much to my surprise when I arrived
There was no welcoming committee
Instead there was some men for me to kill
And now I see all this is all too real

Then I saw him standing with a bayonet
And as I ran towards him
He hardly broke a sweat
When I took his life
He fell to his knees
And as his eyes began to fade
He whispered softly

Godspeed this letter away from here
I sealed it with my tears and stamped it with my fears
And Godspeed this letter away from you
My work down here is through
I'm on my way to better days and so are you

And in his pocket there I saw a picture of his children and his family
And I began to realize this person I despised in actuality
Was not much different from myself
We prob'ly could have taught each other many things
And now I know it's much too late
Although I couldn't hesitate
I checked his gun and his chamber was empty

Then I saw him standing with a bayonet
And as I ran towards him
He hardly broke a sweat
When I took his life
He fell to his knees
And as his eyes began to fade
He whispered softly

Godspeed this letter away from here
I sealed it with my tears and stamped it with my fears
And Godspeed this letter away from you
My work down here is through
I'm on my way to better days and so are you

Ooh we know not what we've done
And ooh we know not what we've done

Godspeed this letter away from here
I sealed it with my tears and stamped it with my fears
And Godspeed this letter away from you
My work down here is through
I'm on my way to better days and so are you
