Nothing to Me

So I made this as a parody of a song called ‘Dark on Me’ by Starset (good song, good band. Check it out (; ) for an English assignment. It’s written in the perspective of a soldier who’s upset with the world leaders and everything they’ve told them to do.


There’s no peace

There’s no love

Leaders, you have killed the final dove

Permission to ask you all once more?

What’s the point? What are we fighting for?

Soldiers look up, there’s our last star

And now it’s faded away


I looked to the flag of my home country

In a world so cold and empty

I lie awake, haunted by their screams

But now crushed with guilt, that flag means nothing to me.


I fought hard

To serve and protect


Yet all I did was leave behind families who wept

I killed their family, then disappeared

How could I just walk away and leave them there

Soldiers look up, there’s our last star

And now it’s faded away


I looked to the flag of my home country

In a world so cold and empty

I lie awake, haunted by their screams

But now crushed with guilt, that flag means nothing to me.


Blinded I have killed my own

How could you order me to do something so wrong


I lie awake, haunted by their screams

Now crushed with guilt, that flag means nothing to me

(Nothing to me, nothing to me)

(Nothing to me, nothing to me)

(Nothing to me)

(Nothing to to me)

I lie awake, haunted by their screams

Now crushed with guilt, that flag means nothing to me
