I'm under fire
blood red sky
Underneath the war machine
Fight for what's right
Don't ask why
Just make the sacrifice

Make the sacrifice

Desensitized
But my eyes
Still recognize the pain
Truth stark and real
Fight or die
Retreat has no place in this game

In the dark and under fire
Believing our cause was justified
Caught in the cross hairs condition dire
Trying a case of do or die

In the blink of an eye
I took someone's life
It's no wonder why
I'm hunted by it still

Bright flickering light
Snubbed by my numbing hand
Don't understand
One finger slip and it's over for him

All's fair in war so they say
But later as I try to sleep
I just can't help but replay
When I sat in as deity

Was this man a loving father?
Was this man a loving son?
Though it was one of us or the other
I don't feel like a lucky one

In the blink of an eye
I took someone's life
It's no wonder why
I'm hunted by it still

[Instrumental Part - Solo]

In the dark and under fire
Believing our cause was justified
Caught in the cross hairs condition dire
Trying a case of do or die

In the blink of an eye
I took someone's life
It's no wonder why
I'm hunted every night

I still hear his cries
And think about his wife and his kids
And all that he could have been
If only we'd have been friends
In the blink of an eye...
