Lyrics

He blesses the boys As they stand in line The smell of gun grease And their bayonets, they shine He's here to help them All that he can To make them feel wanted He's a good holy man

[CHORUS] Sky pilot, sky pilot How high can you fly You'll never, never Never reach the sky He smiles at the young soldiers Tells them it's all right He knows of their fear In the forthcoming fight Soon there'll be blood And many will die Mother and fathers Back home, they will cry [repeat CHORUS] He mumbles a prayer And it ends with a smile The order is given They move down the line But he'll stay behind And he'll meditate But it won't stop the bleeding Or ease the hate As the young men Move out into the battle zone He feels good With God you're never alone He feels so tired And he lays on his bed Hopes the men will find courage In the words that he's said [repeat CHORUS] You're soldiers of god You must understand The fate of your country Is in your young hands May god give you strength Do your job real well If it all was worth it Only time it will tell In the morning, they returned With tears in their eyes The stench of death Drifts up to the skies A young soldier so ill Looks at the sky pilot Remembers the words Thou shalt not kill [repeat CHORUS 2x] You'll never, never Never reach the sky You'll never, never Never reach the sky You'll never, never Never reach the sky
