Back at home people living their ordinary lives
But across the water a solider stands on guard,
Rifle at hand with only one purpose.
His thoughts are lost
Thinking of those he left behind.
Many brothers have been lost
And each man will still not give up.
For those that have fallen
Is another reason to fight hard.
As the guard stands on post
In a different world in his mind,
Counting down the days
Till he sees the ones that he left behind.
But death is around every corner
And the day we are truly free
Is when he comes and brakes the chains of life.
There stands our guard,
A strong line of hope and fear.
For those he fights for
He will lay down his life for.
