Disposable Heroes Lyrics

Bodies fill the fields I see, hungry heroes end
No one to play soldier now, no one to pretend
Running blind through killing fields, bred to kill them all
Victim of what said should beA servant 'til I fall

Soldier boy, made of clay
Now an empty...

    "This song and war pigs by black sabbath are very similar. Soldiers are simply pawns to be used as a means to an end"

    No it's not. War is never fought for selfishness, unless you're talking about the fact that the jews never fight their own wars.War is usually fought through altruism. People give their lives to fight for a higher cause. This could be their families, or it could be "spartanic", like the time when 300 spartans held off an army of 1 million persians until the athenians were able to assemble their troops. All 300 men knew they were going to die, but they stood their ground until they all did. So war isn't stupid, especially when you:

    "never begin it".

    The song is about israel and their plan to draft europeans into the war to fight for their selfish cause of eradicating the arab nations to take control of palestine.

    What? That sucked! So what if that's included in the song? That doesn't mean that's all that its about!!! I think it's about how the government always talks about how much they appreciate the soldiers ("but he served us well") but in reality the government doesn't give a crap about whether the soldiers die or not.

    the slaughter never ends"
