Unconvinced (Sam Whimpenny)

So they sent you to Afghanistan
Kitted out elegantly
Got the rifle got the boots you man
Got the latest Technology
Roads are dusty, mouth is dry
Still you do not question why
Every eye you see is somehow blind
Guess they trained you well if you don’t mind

One day but not today you’ll come home

Johnny bought it at the roadside
There was nothing they could do to save him
His mummy loved his never showed side
Now let’s celebrate the death we gave him
What’s the problem, where’s this war/
What exactly are we fighting for?
Better rein in, times are tough
I think it’s time to call the public’s bluff

One day but not today you’ll come home

Now they sent you home you’ll see
All your friends and family
At least you got your War Stories
Be sure to tell the one about Johnny
One day and it’s today you’ve come home
