General Davis was a brave young man
He did what they told him,
Don't think about it
Do not ask questions
He died with a bullet inside his head

And as he was dying
He asked if it was right
To kill and to injure without thought or conscience
They said, Of course son.
What's life about anyway?'

And so when he had died
And he met his maker
He was unswerving, he had a clear conscience
Shocked when god laughed at him
And said, Why did you waste your life?'

Don't you know that it's easy
To blindly accept fate
Takes courage to disagree when others are falling
That's what you must do
And that's what you didn't do

Goodbye Mr Davis
Was nice to have met you
But you were so naive and you have displeased me
Please leave my sight now
You will never come near me again'

General Davis was a brave young man
He did what they told him,
Don't think about it
Try not to disobey
He died with a bullet inside his head
