Songfacts®:

  • This song is about a soldier who goes overseas. He's a typical soldier - young, full of hope and has a girlfriend back home. Unfortunately he's killed in action but he promises to meet her again in heaven. >>

  • Matt from Victoria, B.cThis song is not about a soldier, it's about a sailor...During the Second World War, German U boats would sink a ship, surface, and then proceed to gun down the survivors.
  • Liz from Markham, CanadaI love this song. It's so sad and it, yet again, shows Billy Talent's talent (tee-hee) to see other people's point of view.
  • Erin from Edm, United StatesBilly Talent is maybe one of the greatest bands ever...after Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, but I still love them.
