lyrics

Nine soldiers, one jungle
Twelve sleepless nights
War-torn lands, blood rivers
No end in sight

Come darkness I remember
Flashes all around
Black devils spit lightning
Thunder from the ground

Fire raging, bush blazing
Smoke stings my eyes
Flesh burning, men screaming
Bodies baked alive

Time after time it comes back in the night
See the blood and blackened bones
I've returned from the battle but it's still inside
When the war comes home
The war comes home

Ten years now, wounds long healed
So I tell myself
Celebration, fireworks fly
And I'm back in hell

Guns sounding, hearts pounding
Charlie's got us down
Innocents cry, dead children
Village on the ground

Time after time it comes back in the night
See the blood and blackened bones
I've returned from the battle but it's still inside
When the war comes home
The war comes home

Father, please forgive me, for I know that I've done wrong
These images still haunt me like the ghosts of Viet Cong
Shall I pull this trigger, blow them straight out of my head?
It's one more for the body count, just one more soldier dead

Time after time it comes back in the night
See the blood and blackened bones
I've returned from the battle but it's still inside
When the war comes home
The war comes home

Nine soldiers, one jungle
No one came home
