This soldier's leaving for the war
Leaving his kids and wife feeling torn
He knows one day he will make them proud
He says goodbye for what seems the last time
He steps on the plane, takes one glance back
He knows one day he'll be fighting in Iraq
He writes at camp, heart beating out his chest
He thinks positive, takes a deep breath

Gunshots, man down, man down
Time freezes, there's no sound
A soldiers brothers body on the ground
All his friends gather round

Gunshots, man down, man down
Time freezes, there's no sound
A soldiers brothers body on the ground
Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace
You did your country proud

Before he knows it, he's on the front line
Fighting for his country, he's saving men all the time
He deserves more respect for everything he does
Soldiers should never be misunderstood
Shots in the air, it feels like a nightmare
His brother gets hit by a bullet, "help, is there anybody out there?"
He's holding his brother telling him he'll be okay
He's promising that he will live to see another day
It's alright, it's okay, keep your eyes open, don't go away

Gunshots, man down, man down
Time freezes, there's no sound
A soldiers brothers body on the ground
All his friends gather round

Gunshots, man down, man down
Time freezes, there's no sound
A soldiers brothers body on the ground
Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace
You did your country proud

He's distraught, lost a close brother
He's gotta make a phone-call, to tell his kids, wife and mother
Tell them how he saved my life, he provided me with cover
And the last words that left his mouth were "tell my wife and mother"

Rest in peace, rest in peace, rest in peace
You did your country proud
