Songs about War

My favorite song about war is One, by Metallica

One Lyrics (Metallica)

I can't remember anythingCan't tell if this is true or dreamDeep down inside I feel the screamThis terrible silence stops it thereNow that the war is through with meI'm waking up, I cannot seeThat there's not much left of meNothing is real but pain nowHold my breath as I wish for deathOh please god, help meBack in the womb it's much too realIn pumps life that I must feelBut can't look forward to revealLook to the time when I'll liveFed through the tube that sticks in meJust like a wartime noveltyTied to machines that make me beCut this life off from meHold my breath as I wish for deathOh please god, wake meNow the world is gone I'm just oneOh god, help me Hold my breath as I wish for deathOh please god, help meDarkness imprisoning meAll that I seeAbsolute horrorI cannot liveI cannot dieTrapped in myselfBody my holding cellLandmines has taken my sightTaken my speechTaken my hearingTaken my armsTaken my legsTaken my soulLeft me with life in hell.

Metallicas One is about the book/ movie "johnny got his gun" by dalton trumbo. It is about a soldier that looses his legs, arms, ears, eyes, jaw to a landmime. Post injury, the army uses him as an experiment to keep him alive. The music video shows the soldier laying on a bed in a vegatative state, as the medical doctors conduct experiments on him.
