"The Soldier's Song" as written by and Don Clark Ryan Clark....
Through the clouds of fallen ash, a lonely mother's cry
Among the fields of broken glass the loyal few will arise
Faith now regained
Finding strength within the void, a raging fire ignites
A spark of ever-burning power and conviction to fight
Pride be your name
They will spit upon the honor that you guard with your life
And run to hide in selfish fear when threat of death is in sight
Lay down your shame

Armed with resistance and blind to the cost
They say your purpose is mindless and lost
But we don't adhere to the slander they spill
We mourn with your losses and stand by your will

These tears we spill
They haunt us still
The cries of the weak lie quiet in sleep
Beneath our feet

We are the sons of holy wrath, a shining light in the dark
The ones who walk amongst despair, no sign of fear in our hearts
Stand in death's way
Shut out the voice of mindlessness, open your eyes to the truth
Believe the words that stand the test and not the slurs of the youth
You're not what they say

Armed with resistance and blind to the cost
They say your purpose is mindless and lost
But we don't adhere to the slander they spill
We mourn with your losses and stand by your will

These tears we spill
They haunt us still
The cries of the weak lie quiet in sleep
Beneath our feet

Turn over the tables and watch them run
You'll be the weapon they can't outgun

These tears we spill
They haunt us still
The cries of the weak lie quiet in sleep
Beneath our feet

    General CommentO man this song is massive. its the best lyrics to any christian song ever. its just about being a hardcore christian, not laying down for anything, striving on through anything to bring Christ to world, blind to the cost, stand in deaths way, we'll be the weapon the cant outgun. i luv this song, it motivates me heaps, i like to play it while im praying, gets me into the hardcore passionate attitude. we i first saw the title i thought it mite be about american troups fighting in iraq an that, cos DH give them a huge thanks in their album booklet. but wen i read the lyrics i was stokd as, its just about being christian warriors! luvn it.

    General CommentHere's the band's take on the song from their thethirdwar.com site:

    "For all of our fans fighting in the war overseas, we wrote the Soldier's Song. This is a song we wrote to give back to them, for their courage and strength in such difficult and unknown circumstances. We feel that alot of people, somewhat specifically, bands and a large part of the music industry, has the tendency to make these men and women feel unimportant. This is not the case in our eyes and we want these soldiers to know that DH supports you with all our thoughts, prayers, and this song."

    ...but yeah thats the great thing about music. It can mean something different to everyone.

    General Commentfrom demonhunter.net
    “The Soldier’s Song” is for all of the Demon Hunter fans that have written us from overseas, fighting in the war. Many of our fans over there have told us that we’ve been inspiring to them and that we give them encouragement in difficult times.
    In lieu of a music industry that seems to give US soldiers more to regret than anything, Demon Hunter wrote a song for our soldiers to give them hope and to let them know that they are appreciated. I feel that many people have made these men and women feel unimportant. Many of them have seen friends and family die over there and if these soldiers are told that their time spent fighting this war is in vain, then that implies that these people died in vain. Demon Hunter would rather give these people our support and respect.

    The Lord advances like a warrior; He stirs up His zeal like a soldier. He shouts, He roars aloud, He prevails over His enemies.
    Isaiah 42:13

    General CommentFinally a song supporting our troops instead of dissing them. I'm getting so sick of all these anti-war songs everywhere.
