Sonic Boom Six
Gary got a gun, a camouflage uniform and a journey to a strange land,
Never even saw the eyes of the man whose shot left him bleeding into the sand
Out in the headlines they call him 'hero'
But if they can send you to war just to settle a score
then I'm sorry my friend you amount to zero

It was his life-long dream
Wanted to "Be the Best" like it said on the screen
So it's straight into the infantry age of 18
6 months later takes a bullet for the team
Shot him down
Insurgent with a gun in an occupied town
Shot him down
And he's hit the side hour later he died and he's
homebound

All he ever knew
Was to follow through
Any order they would ask for him to do
Any place that they would choose to send him into.

Gary got a gun, a camouflage uniform and a journey to a
strange land,
Never even saw the eyes of the man whose shot left him
bleeding into the sand
Out in the headlines they call him 'hero'
But if they can send you to war just to settle a score
then I'm sorry my friend you amount to zero

And so the story goes
The photos of the troops and our super heroes
But every tribute to the boys it just propagate the lie
Of course he's f..cking brave if you're sending him to
die
Shot him down
A nineteen year old kid with an average background
Shot him down
The story should be "why the hell was he there in the
first place?"

All he ever knew
Was to follow through
Any order they would ask for him to do
Anywhere that they would choose to send him into.

Gary got a gun, a camouflage uniform and a journey to a
strange land,
Never even saw the eyes of the man whose shot left him
bleeding into the sand
Out in the headlines they call him 'hero'
But if they can send you to war just to settle a score
then I'm sorry my friend you amount to zero

And poor old mum
Hangs his photo in the hall
And all the words they printed
They do not help at all

Gary got a gun, a camouflage uniform and a journey to a
strange land,
Never even saw the eyes of the man whose shot left him
bleeding into the sand
Out in the headlines they call him 'hero'
But if they can send you to war just to settle a score
then I'm sorry my friend you amount to zero

The worth that they gave to your premature grave was
zero
If they can send you to war just to settle a score you
amount to zero
If they can send you to war just to settle a score you
amount to zero
If they can send you to war does it mean any more now
they call you hero?
