lyrics

Dearest One... how have you been?
I write this letter to say I’ll be home soon
I no longer know what I’m fighting for
Cannon fodder in someone else’s war

Oh Baby... I hate it here... So full of anger, sadness and fear
They have families, jobs and friends.
They’re just like us... why are we killing them?

We’re on the Road to Baghdad Just my brothers and me
Oh I miss your laugh did you get my photograph?
Cause that’s all that’s left of me That’s all that’s left of me

Me and the boys... we watch our backs.
Careful not to stray from the track
I feel a shadow following me. Don’t want to step on an IED

And who really planted them there,
probably the same bastards who sent me here
They hide behind the flag. In return all I get is a body bag

We’re on the Road to Baghdad. Just my brothers and me
If I refuse to shoot Who’ll clean my blood-stained boots?
Cause that’s all that’s left of me That’s all that’s left of me

Been taught to hate those different than me.
But the mirror shows my real enemy
Is there any greater shame.
Than knowing my life was sacrificed in vain?

It was yesterday just before noon I was on patrol and dreaming of you
so compassionate and kind that’s when I stepped on a land mine

We’re on the Road to Baghdad Just my brothers and me
Put my body in the ground Take my ring and melt it down
Cause that’s all that’s left of me That’s all that’s left of me

We’re on the Road to Baghdad Just my brothers and me
Had no chance to sign my name Hope you get my letter just the same
Cause that’s all that’s left of me That’s all that’s left of me
