Woke up screaming in bed
The silence toss me
Is like I'm...
But this nightmare calms me down
The fire leaks 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 haunting
My faith is all 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 my 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
They do what they're told
They send them to war
They never go home
The fear in their bones
Live through the days
We pray for the souls
That God can't save

We live to fight another day
And serve our country without...
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
We were men x4
