or
Theory of a Deadman

Woke up screaming in bed
The silence taunts me
It's like I am there again
But this nightmare calms me down
The fire licks my skin
I feel it burn away
Pulling stream overhead
My heart beats deafening
I've never been so afraid

But we were men
We walk the front lines
We defend our country with our lives
We pretend to see truth in all these lies
'Cause in the end we were men

I close my eyes to hide
Their faces haunt me
My faith is hard to find
Your picture calms me down
I can't cope with the pain
These pills don't work
They just leave me the same
I feel so weak today
You made me strong
So why did you take it away?
I'm trapped inside the afraid

But we were men
We walk the front lines
We defend our country with our lives
We pretend to see truth in all these lies
'Cause in the end we were

Soldiers don't feel
Though they do what they're told
You send them to war
But they never go home
You feel on their bones
They fought through their veins
We cry for their souls
That just can't take

We live to fight another day
And serve our country without dismay
For those who take us from our homes
May God have mercy on their souls

We were men
We walk the front lines
We defend our country with our lives
We pretend to see truth in all these lies
'Cause in the end we were men

[Repeat: x3]
We were men
