You wouldn't read about it
I thought the company was ten feet tall
I got back, checked for a minute
I've got a gun, I've got the bullets!

I'm the Point Man
I walk the point
I take the ride out
I walk on full automatic
One up the spout

The others walk behind me
They're on semi-safety
So some itchy fingered FNG
Doesn't nail my arse

I take the fall
I witness full atrocity
Because, I'm the one in the lead

I'm the Point Man
I take the ride out
See what I can find
I take the ride out I take the lead
I take my men there

You know.
It's lonely out there
But I enjoy the solitude
It helps me push - I watch myself
I take myself to my own limits.
Point Man
Point Man, I'm a Point Man

Now listen very carefully
In the jungle, everyone can hear you scream
Point Man, Well I'm the Point Man

Once I was gone for three weeks
I got back, couldn't recognise my face
I couldn't think for a minute
I got a gun, I got the bullets!

It makes me weak, not being out there
I sit around, can't think anymore
I'm not driving out there no more
I'm not driving there no more!

I want you to listen up very carefully
'Cause what I've got to say
May save a life
First thing don't get to know your
people too well,

Secondly, there's three ways to die.
First - is man made
Second - nature
and the Third, well she's at home
With your best friend
And you don't have to worry
Because this type of death will get,
will come
And get you in your dreams!

When I do this (signal) it means stop
This means get down
That's an ambush
That's the enemy
If you listen to me
I'll save your life
If you listen to me
I might save a life

Are you listening to me?

Out here we have two types of people
One's a leader, the other's a follower
Which one are you?
You'd better think about it.

And that girl you've left behind,
Forget about her, Forget about her!
Alone,
Is the only way to be!

Point Man
Point Man
I'm the Point Man, get the Point Man

You listen to me and I'll save your life
I won't be out there gunning for your failure
For me the only way
Is to come back alive
Rely on no-one
Rely on no-one
