(Vince Clarke)

Go and join the army said the father to the son
See the world around you boy and learn to use a gun
Think you’re something special well we’ll make you just the same
There’s nothing wrong in dying after all it’s just a game – just a game

Read the morning paper there’s a picture of a cross
We were proud in them days by the way I think you lost
Trust me when I tell you boy that God is on our side
Even Jesus cheers us on against the other side – against the other side

He who shouts the loudest is the one that’s in control
We who never listen are the ones who pay the toll
Tell us that it’s time at last to make a final stand
I’m glad ‘cos all I wanted was to kill another man – just to kill another man
