Lyrics:

We will destroy the things that we detest
We’ve chosen to kill the Reds
In the process there’ll be many of our own dead
“Can’t help that” the President said.

Gonna take the cream of the crop.
Gonna send ’em and we’ll never stop.
Gonna fight until they drop
Gonna kill ’til they’re country’s on top, yeah.

You’re in the army now
You’re in the army now
You’re in the army now
You’re in the army now

Someone said we’re all turning red
“Can’t have that” a famous General said
Someone said nothing to live for
Except WAR.

You’re in the army now
You’re in the army now
You’re in the army now
You’re in the army now

Now it’s all up to Him
Chance that is. you’re all His.
Now it’s all up to Him
Chance that is. you’re all His.

All alone but we know we’re Right
We’re in the dark but with an infra-Red sight.
You and I may never be the same.
Aim, fire! The trigger’s the human brain.

You’re in the army now
You’re in the army now
You’re in the army now
You’re in the army now

Now it’s all up to Him
Chance that is. you’re all His.
Now it’s all up to Him
Chance that is. you’re all mine.

All alone
All alone
All alone
All alone
