"Fit to Fly" as written by Doug Millett, Kevin Savigar and Alfred Cher....
Oh, brother, man where are you?
I am bucklin' from the load.
I have lost my eye for color
And my heart can't see the road.
Oh, sister, come and catch me
Cause my legs, their prime has past.
I am breaking from the sorrow
And my faith is fadin' fast.
Mother, father, help me
I'm your flesh and blood and bone.
Don't you hear me?
Can't you see me?
Am I doomed to live alone?
Without warmth, or love, or honor
Like a dog out on the street,
Am I trash 'cause I can't manage
Must I grovel at your feet?

I'm the boy who fought your battles
And I'm the man who won your wars.
Is it over?
Have you used me?
I'm no value anymore?

I'm your mothers,
Wives, and daughters
I'm your fathers, husbands, sons,
I'm the life's blood of this country
I'm the hopeful precious ones.

Am I nothing,
Am I no one?
Once a fabric,
Now a rag.
We treat people like they're nothing
We're not fit to fly,
Fit to fly
No, no, no, no, no, no.

We're not fit to fly,
Fit to fly a flag (no, no, no)
Join the Army,
See the world
The Marine Corps,
Join the Navy
We're not fit to fly
Fit to fly the flag.
