Song Meaning
Verse 1
Sittin' restless under the moonlight
I know I'm getting ready to kill
They say we're going in with the day light
I don't want to but I will
Verse 2
Cause I won't know the man that kills me
And I don't know these men I kill
I thank God for my salvation
Wash away the blood I spill
Verse 3
I try not to think about my family
Cause it's a little too much to take
Out here I got me and I got my buddy
We can't afford even one mistake
Verse 4
I started writing on dirty card boards,
It's the only paper I could find
Tell everyone I got their letters,
Tell everyone I'm doing fine
Verse 5
Late at night when I can dream I,
I think about life back in the world
Verse 6
I miss you and dad, I miss sister Sarah
I miss my wife and my baby girl
Verse 7
Pray for me, pray for my soul Ma
Pray for me and all my sins
Verse 8
They say I got a job to do now
I'll be back when it finally ends
Verse 9
Do you think I should be fighting?
Ma, are you proud are you ashamed?
Verse 10
Really I'm trying to do the right thing
I hope my Government can say the same thing
Verse 11
Cause I won't know the man that kills me
And I don't know these men I kill
We all wind upon the same side
Cause ain't none of us doin' God's Will
