America's Heroes

Their song is the shot of a gun,
An explosion of the building ten feet away.
There is no time for showers or hot meals.
Get up bright and early to do the same tasks day in, day out.

Their song is saving and taking lives.
Protecting the innocent and rid the harmful.
There is no time for fear,
For if they show it, there will be no more time left.

Their song is for the land of the free and the home of the brave.
This is our land and our home.
Stand up next to these brave song writers and fight along side them.
Young men and women are fighting for what was once given all the respect.
Now it is difficult for some to salute the flag and pledge his allegiance.
Show your true colors, have pride in the Red, White and Blue.
