The last soldier

Put me on Blu-Ray,
send me to Iraq
track me on radar
or let me go free.

I’m jumping the borders
disorder, confusion
you leave me no choice
but to change standing orders
and disappear without trace.

Avril stands watching as
I start dissolving,
the fog in the mirror
is that really me?

but I’ll come out again fighting
got to put nights in
to wake up my day
so
put me on Blu-Ray
or
send me away
