It's time to strap out boots on,
This is a perfect day to die,
Wipe the blood out of our eyes.
In this life there's no surrender,
There's nothing left for us to do,
Find the strength to see this through.

We are the ones who will never be broken
With our final breath, we'll fight to the death
We Are Soldiers! We Are Soldiers!
Whoa, Who-oh-oh-oa, Who-oh-ohhhhhhh-oh-oa
WE ARE SOLDIERS!

I stand here right beside you,
Tonight we're fighting for ours lives,
Let me hear your battlecry. Your Battlecry!

We are the ones who will never be broken
With our final breath, we'll fight to the death
We Are Soldiers! We Are Soldiers!
We are the ones who will not go unspoken(unspoken)
No we will not sleep, we are not sheep
We Are Soldiers! We Are Soldiers! Yeah!

We stand shoulder to shoulder
We stand shoulder to shoulder
We stand shoulder to shoulder
You can't erase us, you'll just have to face us!

We stand shoulder to shoulder!
We stand shoulder to shoulder!
We stand shoulder to shoulder!
You can't erase us, you'll just have to face us!

We are the ones who will never be broken
With our final breath, we'll fight to the death
We Are Soldiers! We Are Soldiers!
We are the ones who will not go unspoken(unspoken)
No we will not sleep, we are not sheep
We Are Soldiers! We Are Soldiers! Yeah!

Whoa! Who-oh-oh-oa! Who-oh-ohhhhhhh-oh-oa!
We Are Soldiers!
Whoa! Who-oh-oh-oa! Who-oh-ohhhhhhh-oh-oa!
We Are Soldiers!
Whoa! Who-oh-oh-oa! Who-oh-ohhhhhhh-oh-oa!
We Are Soldiers!

    After seeing the official video online, i think that this song is about those of us who have to fight day to day tasks, especially with this recession going on. It is a memorial to all of us who struggle to live: the poor, the college graduate with no job, the single mother, everyone of us who stand shoulder to shoulder to fight against all of the tiring obstacles that we did not ask for, did not create, and deal with regardless...

    I think this song is more than just about those who go to fight in wars... I think it's about the people that fight a multitude of battles in their day to days lives and in my opionion (a future us marine) every "soldier" deserves recognition for the wars they fight.

    It is a very hard concept to explain... But there are just some people who are born to be soldiers, we live for three things; to protect those we care about, to fight, and to die. Death doesn't scare us it is just a fact to us. And that is not to say all soldiers a re like this, but this song is about us.
