He

said, "Son
,
have

you

seen

the world?
Well, what
would
you say if I said that you
could
?
Just carry this

gun
,
you
'll
even get paid"
I said, "That sounds pretty good"

Black leather boots, spit shined so bright
5
They cut off my hair
but it
looked
alright
We
marched
and we
sang
We all
became
friends as we
learned
how to

fight

A
hero of war
, yeah that's what I'
ll
be
And when I
come
home they'
ll
be damn
proud
of me
10 I'
ll
carry this
flag
to the
grave
if I
must
'Cause it's the
flag that I
love
and a flag that I
trust

I
kicked
in the door
, I
yelled
my commands
The
children they
cried

but
I got my man
We
took
him
away
, a
bag over his face
15
From his family and his friends

They
took off
his clothes,
they
pissed in his hands
I
told
them to stop but then I
joined
in
We
beat
him
with
guns
and batons
Not just once
but again and again

20 A
hero of war
, yeah that's what I
'll
be
And
when I
come
home they'
ll
be damn proud of me
I'
ll
carry
this flag
to the
grave
if I
must
'Cause it's a
flag that I
love
and a flag that I
trust

She
walked
through
bullets
and haze
25 I
asked
her to stop, I
begged
her to stay
But she
pressed
on
So
I
lifted
my gun and I
fired away

And the
shells jumped through the smoke
And into the sand that the
blood
now
had soaked
30 She
collapsed
with a flag in her hand
A
flag white as snow

A
hero of war
is that what they
see
Just medals and scars
, so damn
proud of me
And I
brought
home that
flag
, now it
gathers
dust
35 But it's a
flag that I
love
, the only flag I
trust

He said, "Son,
have
you
seen
the world?
Well, what
would
you say if I said that you
could
?"

II) Interpretation (personal) of the song

I kicked in the door, I yelled my commands
The children they cried
but
I got my man
We took him away, a bag over his face
From his family and his friends

(paragraph 4)




They took off his clothes, they pissed in his hands
I told them to stop but then I joined in
We beat him with guns and batons
Not just once but again and again

(paragraph 5)




She walked through bullets and haze
I asked her to stop, I begged her to stay
But
she pressed on
So I lifted my gun and I fired away

And the shells jumped through the smoke
And into the sand
that the blood now had soaked
She collapsed with a flag in her hand
A flag white as snow

(paragraphs 7 and 8)





A hero of war
,
yeah that's what I'll be
And when I come home they'll
be damn proud of me
I'll carry this flag to the grave if I must
'Cause it's a flag that I love and a flag that I trust

(Chorus)


A hero of war
is that what they see
Just medals and scars,
so damn proud of me
And I brought home that flag, now it gathers dust
But it's a flag that I love, the only flag I trust

(ending chorus)

He said, "Son, have you seen the world?
Well, what would you say if I said that you could?
Just carry this gun, you'll even get paid"
I said, "That sounds pretty good"

(paragraph 1)

He said, "Son, have you seen the world?
Well, what would you say if I said that you could?"

(ending paragraph)

Conclusion:
Writers wrote this song, with many literature technical as figures of speech, in order to convey the message to stop doing wars.
