Charlie's comin'…in the night
Do your duty…firefight
Follow orders…stay alive
America…wrong or right
You've got to stand your ground so freedom can exist

What can we learn? What can we live from this?


Green bamboo trees, mountain breezes
Weak will overcome the strong
Right will overcome the wrong
Winds of change blow in the morning mist

What… can we learn…from this?


Can you see what they've done with our money and our sons?
Then they lie and tell us what this killing's for
Draft cards will burn, "turn, turn, turn"; we'll be studying war no more
When our brothers die, the people rise up and resist

What can we learn from this? What can we learn from this?
