Godspeed Lyrics

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 man for me to kill.
And noe 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 family.
And I began to realize the person I despised in actuality
Was not much different from myself
We probably 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 the chamber was empty.

Then I saw him standimg 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.

Oh, we know not what we've done.
And oh, 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.
