Lyrics

Yah
Yah
I don’t know you but you’d probably take a bullet for me Halfway around the world and never get to tell your story
Might get a badge or two but after you come back
And face the facts that half are mad and saying
How can you look down on you
They’re taking stabs at you
It’s sad to see this afternoon these politicians after you
When you did what you had to do
I hear their words on the news they come unglued
They’ve forgotten already overcome by their views
But whether they believe
That it’s wrong or it’s right
I hope we never ever forget the reason you fight
The hero in the dark with the evil in sight
Deep in a battlefield having trouble sleeping at night
We forget that he’s a man with a daughter and wife
We forget that evil people never call it a night
Tell his brothers and sisters he’ll be right back and he’ll miss 'em
I wave this flag as a reminder I’m still backing this system
Because I’ll never forget
Never forget
Ever
Never forget
Never forget
Ever
Every single time that I raise this up They’re not fighting for themselves
They’re fighting for us Man I’ll never forget
Never forget
Ever
Never forget
Never forget
Ever
The people here before that shed blood for me To show the world that freedom isn’t always free
They shed a tear but can’t let it go though it’s been years
Since they’ve seen their peers facing their deepest and darkest fears
Staring death right in the face
Would you ever take their place
Would you ever stand beside them
Or do you hide behind them
Writing to remind them
Some out here still find them
Guns up in the air
We salute in a time
When we’ve forgotten what it means to have to fight for our means
We’ve forgotten what the powers at be can conceive
We’ve forgotten what it is we’re not living in a dream
When the truth and reality isn’t what it seems
So we make our own views based on things we’ve never seen
Since we’ve never been to battle and we’ve never joined the team
They sit the sidelines point their fingers and scream
Since they’ve never had to get dirty their hands are still clean
I believe in peace plus the freedom the bring
I hope we can wake up stop living in a dream
Because I’ll never forget
Never forget
Ever
Never forget
Never forget
Ever
Every single time that I raise this up They’re not fighting for themselves
They’re fighting for us Man I’ll never forget
Never forget
Ever
Never forget
Never forget
Ever
The people here before that shed blood for me To show the world that freedom isn’t always free
Because I’ll never forget
Never forget
Ever
Never forget
Never forget
Ever
Every single time that I raise this up They’re not fighting for themselves
They’re fighting for us Man I’ll never forget
Never forget
Ever
Never forget
Never forget
Ever
The people here before that shed blood for me To show the world that freedom isn’t always free
