choking on air
bombing fumes
clear your head
BANG BANG BOOM!
gunshots run in your ears
muffled screams everywhere
kneel down to god
and say your prayers
keep moving keep moving
make sure you live to tell
walking into a war
is like tripping into hell
guns bombs and death
too late to be afraid
keep the same pace
watch out for the grenade!
ever seen somebody die?
it changes your life
before there's time to grieve
your reaching for your knife
having no control
never dreamed of this before
dying is a probability everyday
welcome to war
