Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise
These feelings can't be right
Stand up and fight
Now fighting rages on and on
I'll walk your land but don't be long

I'm far from home and I'm fighting your war
Some are scared others killing for fun, I shot a mother in front of her son

Pray to god that our side is right
I see your mother filled with tears we grew up so fast where did those years go

(Scared to make it out alive now murders all I know)
(Another day another life but nothing real to show for)
Fight for honor, fight for your life
You know we won but still we lose, until I make it home to you
Memories won't let you cry unless I don't return tonight
Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun will never rise
These feelings can't be right, lend me your courage to stand up and fight
Watching the death toll rise wondering how I'm alive
There were no silent nights watching your brothers all die
No thought of me
Walk the city lonely
A murderer walks your street tonight
Fought so scared in the name of God and country
