Dm
Staring at the carnage
Gm                                              C
Praying that the sun would never rise
            A#                      Dm
Living another day in disguise
           Gm                    C
These feelings can't be right
                       A#                                  Dm
Lend me your courage to stand up and fight
Gm    C           A#
On tonight

Dm Gm C A#
Ooooo....
                     Dm
Stand up and fight

Dm                                    A#
The fighting rages on and on
Gm                                          C
To challenge me you must be strong
Dm                                   A#
I walk your land but don't belong
Gm                                        C
Two million soldiers can't be wrong

Dm                                          A#
It's no fun but I've been here before
F
I'm far from home and I'm fighting your war
                                              A#
(Not the way I pictured this, I wanted better things)
Dm                                                 A#
Some are scared, others killing for fun
                                                        F
I shot a mother right in front of her son
                                                             A#
(Take this from my consciousness, and please erase my dreams)

Dm                     A#
Fight for honor, fight for your life
C                        F
Pray to God that our side is right
       Gm                       Dm
And though we won, I still may lose
Gm                 C
Until I make it home to you
Dm                       A#
I see our mothers filled with tears
C                                  F
Grew up so fast where did those years go?
Gm                   Dm
Memories won't let you cry
Gm                    C
Unless I don't return tonight

Dm                                          A#
So many soldiers on the other side
                                                      F
I take their lives so they can't take mine
                                                    A#
(Scared to make it out alive, now murder's all I know)
Dm                                                     A#
Nobody tells me all the reasons we're here
                                                              F
I have my weapon so there's nothing to fear
                                                A#
(Another day, another life, but nothing real to show for)
