​Exit Wounds 2: The Soldier

This song is by Hourglass and appears on the album Subconscious (2004).

Sailing far and away
From the place he wants to be
But his heart's still there
Though his job is across the sea

His thoughts are of reflection
The way he used his time
Though his life was not perfection
The moments of regret were few to find

And somehow he knows
That he won't be coming back
What he wonders the most
Is how his family will react

But now the battle draws near
Pulls him away from the past
With a sigh he moves out
Committed to lead the attack

Fear has left him and adrenaline surges
Straight ahead he sees the battlefield
The first explosion brings death closer
His mind is focused his orders clear

Believing in freedom
Enough to give his life
As the moment of truth arrives
He's not afraid to fight

Taking down the enemy quickly
He fights alongside good company
Willing to die for their country
Willing to fight to keep men free

Believing in freedom
Enough to give his life
As the moment of truth arrives
He's not afraid to die

Bullets fill the air as thick as a smoke cloud
The cost of war lay spread across the ground
No one panics as the fighting turns fatal
At any moment the death toll could sound

Sudden pain strikes and he looks at himself
As he clutches his side he drops his gun
Collapsing in darkness his eyes start to dim
And the next thing he knows he is gone

Believing in freedom
Enough to give his life
As the moment of truth arrives
This is his time to die
