Innocents stripped of innocence
Boys from Haiphong and Hanoi
Snipers barely out of diapers
Out there to take me out.
Small arms firing small arms
Blood flowing on more blood
Afraid of being more afraid
Killing time between the killing
Twenty to one won’t see twenty
Dying to be done with the dying
Home, Buddha, please take me home
God damn it, where the hell is God!
