Elite Soldier

Read the stick, realized where you headed quick
Brought some lead with it and left no words but dead bricks
Look at us catching permanent diseases, what does this mean?
we aint got no history, so it’s a mystery how we could end up with the same disease
these nightmares look the same to me, but it's plain to see they're changing me so I've gotta tame the dreams
in war the only strange is peace, looking at the paths of the soldiers they mislead
but I just want an own piece of peace now, but you aint hearing me
I can tell you are a sheep, without even having to look that deep
Look, I am all for peace, and freedom of speech, freedom to feel free
But living inside the nets of a society, lying to us, like we’re dirty soil
in Iraq and the reason the troops are there’s because the worth of oil
We’ve made a dirty choice, fell for the first lady when we heard her voice
now we’re thirty boys laying in the mud with dirty toys
Looking into the eyes of mercenaries trying to follow the white lines
lost in the grey mass late at night time
brown cigars in their pockets saved for the right time
but truth is they all blacked out in red blood under a yellow sun only because they couldn’t follow the guidelines

Welcome, you’ve found me, I’m just constructing new lies, because I’ve got no alibi
Trying to separate the rights from wrong, but I fail, don’t ask me why
Trying to make it right with this song, ready to stand on my knees anytime
Just give me any sign and see I’m willing to ask once again, can we die?

Please
God show us mercy, you’ve got mankind down on its knees

There’s nothing you can do to save me, lately, I’ve been out on death missions daily
I’ve should’ve been professional about us but acted like a trainee
Should’ve known out of experience that I’m inferior to you
You’re the nemesis I fight with, something that I can’t drink
I’m no psychic, even though I can shrink
I just speak my mind, shit, and let you know what I think
They say I’m seeing things, but I’m just being him
Looking the truth straight in the eye exposing our bleeding sins
I’m looking at our past, the sins devour fast
An hour’s passed, and I’m looking at a coward’s mask
the face of betrayal, the face of despair
Looking at the vultures, turning their aim to the flair
Of a decomposing culture, some things change can’t repair

Welcome, you’ve found me, I’m just constructing new lies, because I’ve got no alibi
Trying to separate the rights from wrong, but I fail, don’t ask me why
Trying to make it right with this song, ready to stand on my knees anytime
Just give me any sign and see I’m willing to ask once again, can we die?

Please
God show us mercy, you’ve got mankind down on its knees

Somethings are better unheard of, the future is invincible
the rules are unspoken and the lines are usually invisible
looking at the silver lining, bad movie night, the shining
got my mind on black alignment, like it’s a bad sign and
we’re all late night screaming, checking our own hearts beating
I’m just like you, believed in the idea of fighting for peace and
love when it’s only to find within ourselves and not the lies that are deceiving
my heart is speeding because I’m dreaming
about monsters and about unconditional love
about all the scary things I can think of, I’m crying, screaming; it’s a tragedy
is somebody out there? It’s getting harder to breathe and I need someone here your majesty
to hold my hands when they're having a look at my x-rays
and try to figure out the best way to make me live until the next day
life's like a chess game, and I'm not into how the rest play
I just let pain find me and try to explain where I stand the battle in this essay
now let's play...

Welcome, you’ve found me, I’m just constructing new lies, because I’ve got no alibi
Trying to separate the rights from wrong, but I fail, don’t ask me why
Trying to make it right with this song, ready to stand on my knees anytime
Just give me any sign and see I’m willing to ask once again, can we die?

Please
God show us mercy, you’ve got mankind down on its knees
Please
God show us mercy, you’ve got mankind down on its knees
Please
God show us mercy, you’ve got mankind down on its knees
