"Miss America" as written by and Skidd/null Mills....
Hello mother, it's been long,
I'm still here fighting, be proud of your son,
My friends are dying, and I just wanna come home.

The stars are under a different sky,
Your prayers must be working 'cause I'm still alive,
This place is so cold and I just wanna come home.

I'm fighting, I'm bleeding,
I know what's coming but I'm still breathing,
Not giving up, not losing love,
Not running away, I'm not afraid,
I miss America, my miss America,
When does the fighting end, where does the freedom begin?

Hey there love, how have the kids been,
Wish I could be there to tuck them in,
But freedom is calling while your tears are falling.

I've seen lives broke in two,
Through these eyes: red, white and blue,
I know why I'm here, still, I just wanna go home.

I'm fighting, I'm bleeding,
I know what's coming but I'm still breathing,
Not giving up, not losing love,

Not running away, I'm not afraid,
I miss America, my miss America,
When does the fighting end, where does the freedom begin.?

My hair stands on it's end,
Chilling thoughts as I defend,
Running for cover, take cover my brother,
To die another day as that banner yet waves.

Hey there son, it's your time to go,
I'm so proud, more than you'll know,
But freedom ain't free and now you're just like me.

I'm fighting, I'm bleeding,
I know what's coming but I'm still breathing,
Not giving up, not losing love,
Not running away, I'm not afraid.
I miss America, my miss America,
When does the fighting end, where does the freedom begin?

Where does the freedom begin?
I miss America, my miss America,
When does the fighting end, wheres does the freedom begin?

    General CommentThis song is an awesome tribute to those out fighting for the US. I wrote a letter much like the first verse on my first deployment.

    This song sums up how you feel when you're out lost in the sand or surrounded by jungle. You know you could be sleeping in a cozy bed, eating warm meals, enjoying your family and friends. Instead, you're getting what sleep you can on a cot or the ground; eating MREs or finding your own food or going without food; and cleaning your weapon, watching friends die, and wondering if you will even make it back. I wouldn't change anything I've done, but it really is hell out there. Just be happy the war is over there, and not here. You may oppose the war, but please support the troops. Hooah.

    Lyric CorrectionHello mother, it's been long,
    I'm still here fighting, be proud of your son,
    My friends are dying, and I just wanna come home.

    The stars are under a different sky,
    Your prayers must be working, cuz I'm still alive,
    This place is so cold, and I just wanna come home.

    I'm fighting, I'm bleeding,
    I know what's coming, but I'm still breathing,
    Not giving up, not losing love,
    Not running away, I'm not afraid,
    I miss America, my Miss America,
    When does the fighting end? Where does the freedom begin?

    Hey there love, how have the kids been?
    Wish I could be there to tuck them in,
    But freedom is calling while your tears are falling.

    I've seen lives broken in two,
    Through these eyes, red white and blue,
    I know why I'm here still I just wanna go home.

    I'm fighting, I'm bleeding,
    I know what's coming, but I'm still breathing,
    Not giving up, not losing love,
    Not running away, I'm not afraid,
    I miss America, my Miss America,
    When does the fighting end? Where does the freedom begin?

    My hair stands on its end,
    Chilling thoughts as I defend,
    Running for cover, take cover my brother,
    To die another day as that man I yet waste.

    Hey there son, it's your time to go,
    I'm so proud, more than you'll know,
    But freedom ain't free, and now your just like me.

    I'm fighting, I'm bleeding,
    I know what's coming, but I'm still breathing,
    Not giving up, not losing love,
    Not running away, I'm not afraid,
    I miss America, my Miss America,
    When does the fighting end? Where does the freedom begin?

    Where does the freedom begin.
    I miss America, my Miss America,
    When does the fighting end? Where does the freedom begin?
