Canít brainwash a conscience

Verse
Soldiers do what theyíre told to do.
Thatís the way theyíre trained.
They dare not question their orders
Itís drilled in their brains.
Murders just a word for killing
That civilians use.
Their jobs to carry out orders
That cowards refuse.
Chorus
Canít brain wash a conscience.
Canít undo a crime.
Itís gonna haunt the soul
Till the end of time.
Canít forget the bloodshed
Canít undo whatís done.
Canít brainwash a conscience.
Canít un-fire a gun.
Verse
Soldiers do what theyíre told to do.
If they donít theyíll die.
It takes a callous mind in war
For men to survive.
In a war you learn to forget
About honorís code.
Pity is like an IED
Ready to explode.
Chorus
Canít brain wash a conscience.
Canít undo a crime.
Itís gonna haunt the soul
Till the end of time.
Canít forget the bloodshed
Canít undo whatís done.
Canít brainwash a conscience.
Canít un-fire a gun.
Bridge
We donít need condemnation.
Our conscience has that job.
Still picture angry mothers
Hold their sons and sob.
Verse

That cowards refuse.
Chorus
Canít brain wash a conscience.
Canít undo a crime.
Itís gonna haunt the soul
Till the end of time.
Canít forget the bloodshed
Canít undo whatís done.
Canít brainwash a conscience.
Canít un-fire a gun.
