Remember Me

Oh, I am the unknown soldier who died in World War II
I didn’t want to fight, it was the only thing to do
I was the victim of a world that went insane
Will you show me that I didn’t die in vain

Remember me, when the crosses are a burnin’
Remember me, when the racists come around
Remember me, when the tides of peace are turnin’
Remember me and please don’t let me down

On the South Pacific Islands and the Iwo Jima sands
We raised the flag of freedom over many distant lands
And every time I killed a man my own heart felt the pain
Will you show me that I didn’t die in vain

Remember me, when the crosses are a burnin’
Remember me, when the racists come around
Remember me, when the tides of peace are turnin’
Remember me and please don’t let me down

And I carried my old rifle to the European shore
And every friend that died made me die a little more
Have pity on the man who put a bullet through my brain
And show me that I didn’t die in vain

Remember me, when the crosses are a burnin’
Remember me, when the racists come around
Remember me, when the tides of peace are turnin’
Remember me and please don’t let me down

When the fascists started marching many millions had to pay
We saw them rise to power but we looked the other way
It happened once before and it can happen once again
Will you show me that I didn’t die in vain

Remember me, when the crosses are a burnin’
Remember me, when the racists come around
Remember me, when the tides of peace are turnin’
Remember me and please don’t let me down
