lyrics

Soldier

I’m a soldier who’s been fighting here free
I’m a soldier who’s been fighting here greed
I’m a soldier who’s been forgotten overseas
I’m a soldier and you don’t give a fuck about me

American people forget about war
But I’m the one who’s stuck living with it
And half the population doesn’t give a fuck
Cuz’ now I’m illiterate and my job’s been given up

Chorus 1:
Get the fuck out of this home
That’s right leave the brilliant, Red, white, and blue
The stars have fallen to the ground
And the flames are burning north to go
GO!

People in the bar are sipping life away
But I’m the one stuck with this, this fucking memory
Of carrying a rifle in my hand
And the strain of a 600 pound pack

Chorus 2:
Get the fuck out of this home
That’s right get away, I've got to get away
The stars have fallen to the ground
And the flame is burning north to go

I’m a soldier on the front lines dying, dying for your free
I’m a soldier on the front lines dying, dying for your greed
I’m a soldier on the front lines dying, dying overseas
I’m a soldier on the front lines and you don’t give a fuck about me

When I come home and look at the veteran’s parks
It shows that our nation doesn’t give a fuck
We’ve been butchered and fed to the dogs
And I will never fight for you

Chorus 3:
Get the fuck out of this home
That’s right leave the brilliant Red, white, and blue
The stars have fallen to the ground
And the flames burning north to go

Get the fuck out of this home
That’s right leave the brilliant Red,White, and Blue
These stars have fallen to the ground
As these flames are burning me.
