lyrics

Stricken down all around me.
A constant struggle hell rains upon me.
Bloodlust and constant fear, they fuel the fires that brought me here.

Boots grounded in the blood soaked dirt
mark paths of death remain alert.
Our enemy must not prevail.
We are the anchor, cut the sail.

Though fear and fire pave the way
we fight on forward through the fray.
The fog of war may dim our eyes.
Keep steady hands let bullets fly.

So I stand by in line my comrades who stand beside me.
Raise high a war cry and defy the demons that urge you to flee

The sound of gunfire in my brain.
Men drop like flies throughout the day.
The horizon calls me heaven sake.
The fear of death I must forsake.

The earth trembles underfoot.
In my mouth the blackened taste of soot.
If I should make it through the day,
my dreams will come to torment me.

Visions haunting; tear through my mind, I cannot hide
Whisper softly; into my ear, my demons are near

So I stand by in line my comrades who stand beside me.
Raise high a war cry and defy the demons that urge you to flee

A constant battle for sanity
Oh god, “Get the fuck out!”

So I stand by in line my comrades who stand beside me.
Raise high a war cry and defy the demons that urge you to flee

I feel them tearing through my soul.
I feel I’m losing all that I control.
Their rivid nails consuming me.
I’ve lost sight of all my humanity.

My empathy is drown in the undertow.
Waves of violence carry death to the shallows.
Their teeth bearing deep in my mind.
Is there no-where that I can hide?
