"I Don't Understand"

Make me travel around the globe to fight a senseless war
What are we killing innocent women and children for?
I just don't understand no matter how hard I try
Why all this effort to send us young guys to die?

They claim it's an effort to insure the world peace
How can the world have this till all the wars cease?
I don't understand, though you say I have no right
To question the motives and reasons I must go and fight
