lyrics

Back in 1942 my Dad volunteered to go away to war,
Just an 18-year-old country lad but he knew what he was going for,
If I got the call, had to go, had no choice,
Doubt I could say why with an honest voice.

If Basic didn't break me, I still couldn't call myself a patriot,
Governments leading us towards a nation I don't want to represent,
Couldn't say it's because we value human life,
When the first of us don't have the same rights.

We’re all going away,
We’re all going away,
We’re all going away,
What am I supposed to say?
I’m not an invader,
I am not a saviour,
Dad believed the cause,
But now what is it for?

Is it nationalistic pride?

Not for Queen or country,
Or for speeches fed to me,
We can't take the higher ground,
Morally and allow,
Our homemade genocide,
I'm not a part of their apartheid.
Apartheid. Apartheid. Apartheid.

Yeah, we’re all going away,
We’re all going away,
We’re all going away,
What am I supposed to say?
I’m not an invader,
I am not a saviour,
Dad believed the cause,
But now what is it for?
