So many came before you the prisoners of fate
A history of bloodshed a legacy of hate
But where will you be standing when the battles have been won?
Inside your lonely fortress the battle's just begun

After the war who will you be fighting for?
After the war is over
After the fire is burning to its dying embers
After the war

A letter from the draft board put paid to all your dreams
You're just another number in military schemes
They marched you in a uniform you wore against your will
With lies of hope and glory they taught you how to kill

After the war who will you be fighting for?
After the war is over
After the fire is burning to its dying embers
After the war

You thought you'd be a hero after all that you survived
If hell was meant for heroes then surely you've arrived
After the war, after the war

After the war who will you be fighting for?
After the war who will you be fighting for?
After the fire is burning to its dying embers
After the war
