Lyrics
Don´t waste no tears over the lost years
just doing the duty in of freewill , in for the kill

I was young a blue-eyed kid
only eighteen years old
beliving in the familiar quotations
glory and fight for your country
be a real hero , show your braveness to the world

get in the line , get drafted
just like a rat , in a rattrap

We were sent on a secret mission
far behind enemy lines
a dead end trip with no way out
strange orders loaded with lies
an obscure target in the jungle
destroy all that you can see
but it started wrong , a big miscalculation
they were shooting from every tree

Sniper , I´m crawling over barbed wire
Sniper , I´m lost and I´m trapped here
please help me back to civilization
I´m so tired of this war and
I don´t want to die here
Sniper , I´m stumbling like a blind
Sniper , must leave my fear behind
I can feel the death right by my side

I flush my brain wiht drugs
just to stand the pain
of the hell here and of all that I left behind
I left behind

Running alone in no-mans land
cold scared and hungry
beaten up by the rough jungle an the sniper
is closing in
he´s hidden he´s silent
where the hell is my platoon
I´m not gonna make it on my own
I´m going to die soon

Sniper , I´m crawling over barbed wire
Sniper , I´m lost and I´m trapped here
please help me back to civilization
I´m so tired of this war and
I don´t want to die here
Sniper , I´m stumbling like a blind
Sniper , must leave my fear behind
I can feel the death right by my side
please I wan´t to stay alive

I´m fumbling in the dark
I´m crawling over dead bodies
fall into large holes
that are full of sharp bamboo sticks
that rip my clothes , and rip my flesh
while the smell of napalm
tear my lungs to pieces

Sniper , I´m crawling over barbed wire
Sniper , I´m lost and I´m trapped here
please help me back to civilization
I´m so tired of this war and
I don´t want to die here
Sniper , I´m stumbling like a blind
Sniper , must leave my fear behind
I can feel the death right by my side
please I wan´t to stay alive
Sniper . . . .
