life may not be the party we all hoped for,
but while were here we should dance

Blood drips like rain & I dream of the day you’re coming back again

arrive your deprived of what you once had

all for this one bust

the innocent taken for enemies

we’re all just trying to protect the people important to me

perfect friends and family

green, grays, & tans to represent the red, white, & blue

you don’t know this but i do it all for you

wars the chore i’ve been assigned

now it’s time to step up-claim my pride

you may not understand why i choose to protect my fellow man

but for better or worse that signature became my curse

I chose to write my name on that line, and for that i carry no shame

I do it for all our dreams, and i expect you to understand by no means

but the young grow old, and realize the truth being told

and when these men can’t do it anymore, other will work ‘till they’re sore

trying to fill that empty space with a new eager face

but still

their legacies will live on

even the death will be remembered

many have fallen but none will be forgotten
