Versione dei Passion Killers - 2002
UNIVERSAL SOLDIER

He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four
He fights with missiles and with spears
He's all of thirty one, and he's only seventeen
Been a soldier for a thousand years

He's a Christian, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,
A Buddhist, and a Muslim, and a Jew
And he knows he shouldn't kill
And he knows he always will
Kill you for me, my friend, and me for you

And he's fighting for Palestine
He's fighting for Israel
He's fighting for the USA
And he's fighting for the Russians
And he's fighting for Iraq
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way

And he's fighting for Democracy
He's fighting for his soil
He says: "It's for the peace of all"
He's the one who must decide who's to live and who's to die
And he never sees the writing on the wall

But without him how would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau?
Without him Caesar would have stood alone
He's the one who gives his body as a weapon of the war
And without him all this killing can't go on

He's the universal soldier
And he is really is to blame
His orders come from far away no more
They come from here and there, and you and me
And brother, can't you see
This is not the way we put an end to war
He's 5' 2" and he's 6' 4"
He fights with missiles and with spears
He's all of 31 and he's always 17
He's been a soldier for 1000 years
He's fighting for Britain and he's fighting for Iraq
He's fighting for the USA
He's fighting for the Russians and he's fighting for Japan
And he thinks he'll put an end to war this way

He's fighting for democracy he's fighting for the reds
He says he's for the peace of all
He's the one who must decide who's to live and who's to die
And he never sees the writing on the wall

But without him how would Hitler have condemned him at De Vaul
Without him Caesar would have stood alone

He's the one who gives his body as the weapon of the war
And without him all this killing can't go on

He's the universal soldier
He really is to blame
His sword has come from far away no more
They come from you and me
And brothers / sisters can't you see
This is not the way we put an end to war?
