Soldiers Roar

I am man hear me roar 
Sent by cowards out to war 
While they sit high at the top 
As I watch my brothers drop 

I am man hear me roar 
I stand here as  bullets soar 
A true soldier down to the core 
Shedding blood for my country 
My home a distant memory 

I am man hear me roar 
As I fight this war in Nam 
For the sake of uncle Sam 
I come home a broken man 
From the things that I have seen 
Watching all my brothers bleed  

I am man hear me roar 
Waking up in these cold sweats 
Things I've seen that I regret 
Baby killer you should burn 
A soldiers welcome upon return 
I hang my head as if in shame 
While the Bankers take no blame 

I am man hear me roar 
I fight here on foreign land 
Drafted in but still I stand 
I storm this beach as bullets fly 
Bombs cascading from the sky 
Bullets hitting brothers die 
The only time a soldier cries 

I am man hear me roar 
Voices heard from every where 
My gun is gripped my eyes are flared  
While bankers  sleep without a care 
A soldier roars from these nightmares
