When you're just a soldier, and you hear a passenger plane overhead.
But your ankles start shaking, and you're waiting for that sound, and then the rubble.
And nobody can take you out of your trance.
Only a focused and powerful man.
He knows; and I know.
Sometimes life is not a joke.
He helped me, but I wonder who helps him?

Any songs with the overriding theme of war are welcome here.

This has to be the best for me and strangely accurate quite how Matt Johnson knew back in the 80's that todays climate was coming I'll never know!

Here's another Metallica song. Probably my 2nd favorite of theirs and it does happen to be based on war.
It's the bass that gets me!

I like the newer song by AC/ DC, Dogs of War. Good catchy tune and good beat. Some of the lyrics.

Dogs of war
Dogs of war
Dogs of war
Dogs of war
Dogs of war

You be a fightin' man
Make all the cash you can
Don't mix and feel your tide
They wanna risk their lives
Takin' all you can
Riskin' ain't in the plan
Feel the boots upon the ground
Trouble brewin' all around
Dodgin' the bullets, shootin' the missiles
Soldiers of fortune, such a pretty name
Face the game
Mercenary thing

We be the dogs of war (Soldier of fortune)
We'll be the dogs of war (Soldier of fortune)
Call in the dogs of war (Soldier of fortune)
Send in the dogs of war (Soldier of fortune)

I'll fire-fight in the night
Run away or die of fright
Keep in time, keep in line
Where there's smoke, there's fire
Dodgin' the bullets, shootin' the missiles
Soldiers of fortune, such a pretty name

Some foolish Car Company thought this would be a good song to sell their Wares.

Lying with my brothers, in the desert heat.
Look ahead and don't look down.
Sun-bathing with motor-grease.
There ain't no discharge in the sand.
No way that home can be home again.
And I miss it so much.
But it was all too long ago.

Sky Pilot by The Animals



Little Boy Soldiers by The Jam
There's a lyric in this song :
They'll send you home in a pine overcoat, with a letter to your mom. 'Find enclosed, one son.'

As a retired soldier, I would have to say the most fitting song for a young(ish) person who has seen combat would have to be
M.I.A. by Avenged Sevenfold. " Fight for honor, fight for your life, pray to god that our side is right...and though we've won I still may lose - until I make it home to you." " I see our mothers filled with tears, grew up so fast! Where did those years go!? " "Memory won't let you cry unless I don't return tonight..."
