​Sniper

This song is by Galleon and appears on the album Heritage & Visions (1994).

Don't waste no tears over the lost years
Just doing the duty in of freewill, in for the kill

I was young a blue-eyed kid
Only eighteen years old
Beliving in the familiar quotations
Glory and fight for your country
Be a real hero, show your braveness to the world

Get in the line, get drafted
Just like a rat, in a rattrap

We were sent on a secret mission
Far behind enemy lines
A dead end trip with no way out
Strange orders loaded with lies
An obscure target in the jungle
Destroy all that you can see
But it started wrong, a big miscalculation
They were shooting from every tree

Sniper, I'm crawling over barbed wire
Sniper, I'm lost and I'm trapped here
Please help me back to civilization
I'm so tired of this war and
I don't want to die here
Sniper, I'm stumbling like a blind
Sniper, must leave my fear behind
I can feel the death right by my side

I flush my brain with drugs
Just to stand the pain
Of the hell here and of all that I left behind
I left behind

Running alone in no-man's land
Cold scared and hungry
Beaten up by the rough jungle an the sniper
Is closing in
He's hidden he's silent
Where the hell is my platoon
I'm not gonna make it on my own
I'm going to die soon

Sniper, I'm crawling over barbed wire
Sniper, I'm lost and I'm trapped here
Please help me back to civilization
I'm so tired of this war and
I don't want to die here
Sniper, I'm stumbling like a blind
Sniper, must leave my fear behind
I can feel the death right by my side
Please I wan't to stay alive

I'm fumbling in the dark
I'm crawling over dead bodies
Fall into large holes
That are full of sharp bamboo sticks
That rip my clothes, and rip my flesh
While the smell of napalm
Tear my lungs to pieces

Sniper, I'm crawling over barbed wire
Sniper, I'm lost and I'm trapped here
Please help me back to civilization
I'm so tired of this war and
I don't want to die here
Sniper, I'm stumbling like a blind
Sniper, must leave my fear behind
I can feel the death right by my side
Please I wan't to stay alive
