A hundred men went off to war
... a hundred men.
Their hearts were heavy, their heads were high
As they kissed the ones they left behind.
Some were eager, some were scared,
Nobody knew, and nobody cared
When a hundred men went to war.

Then a thousand men went off to war
... a thousand men.
And a few now said that it wasn't right,
And a few said prayers in their beds at night
For the hearts so heavy, the heads so high
Who kissed the ones they loved goodbye,
For those so eager, and those so scared,
A few now knew, a few now cared,
When a Thousand men went off to war.
... Ten thousand men.

Then a million men went off to war
... a million men.
Now fear came a creepin' down many a street,
Borne on the dust of a million feet,
And many now said that it wasn't right
And many prayed in their beds at night
For the hearts so heavy, the heads so high
Who kissed the ones they loved goodbye,
For those so eager, and those so scared,
For many now knew, and many now cared,
When a million men went to war.

Then all mankind went off to war,
... Yes, all mankind.
And the people fought, and the people cried,
And the people prayed, but the people died,
And fear like a flood covered every street
And mixed with the mud of a billion feet
And all now said that it wasn't right
And prayed as one to the fiery night.
Their hearts were heavy as they watched the sky
And kissed the ones they loved goodbye
Now none were eager, but all were scared
Now they knew that they should've cared.
When a hundred men went off to war,
... a hundred men.
