Another dead man in Afghanistan





VERSE 1

Dm                                                             G
Every day my people are wearing the insurgents down
Coalition casualties are at the level we predicted
We've come this far to pull out now would be to admit defeat
We need success to take us on to the next fight

CHORUS
Dm
It's all part of a bigger plan
G
Another dead man in Afganistan
(Audience repeats) Another dead man in Afganistan

VERSE 2
We're marching to stop the war against so-called terrorism
Their decisions are being made on false hope and pride
The war is being prolonged by the people who can end it
They're turning the country into a pit of drugs and corruption and death, until there's nothing left

CHORUS

VERSE 3
We're there for democracy, security and emancipation
We're helping the Afghan forces to defend themselves, we're building a nation
We have a timetable now and will leave at the right time
We can't leave a vacuum for terrorism to breed, our streets must be safe

CHORUS

VERSE 4
For 30 years we've been fighting infidels
it is our sacred duty to drive them from our country as our fathers and grandfathers did
The time will come when you have to withdraw
That's the moment that we'll keep fighting for

CHORUS

VERSE 5

The army was the only way out for a guy like me
My friends are fighting in gangs, I fight for my country
I'm learning skills 
When I'm out I'll make a better life for me, and my family

CHORUS

OUTRO
Ain't you learnt nothing from Vietnam
(Audience) Another dead man in Afghanistan
It's our duty to stop the Taliban
(Audience) Another dead man in Afghanistan
How many must die 'til you understand?
(Audience) Another dead man in Afghanistan
We will end what we began
(Audience) Another dead man in Afghanistan
Tell me if you've got a better plan
(Audience) Another dead man in Afghanistan
