Show me a smile on your silly face
'Cause I'm getting tired of this human race,
My darling...

The eyes of a child as I went away,
And how many heroes have we killed today?
I can fly higher than an aeroplane
And I have the voice of a thousand hurricanes
My darling...

Men of destruction reap iniquity
When heroes of courage die with dignity
How many weapons did I help create?
How many lives will I devestate?
My darling...

I think of all the days in my life
Where I could have done something more
Yes I remember the days in my life
Where I could have done something more
There is never a day that goes by,
That's a good day to die
Just open your eyes to the millions of lives,
That will selflessly die in our wars

I think of all the days in my life
Where I could have done something more
Ya I remember the days in my life
Where I should have done something more
I think of all the days in my life
Where I could have done something more
Yes I remember the days in my life
Where I should have done something more
There was never a day that goes by
That's a good day to die
Please open your eyes, oh
There was never a day that went by
That's a good day to die
Won't you please close your eyes? For the millions of lives...
Who have senselessly died in a war!!




I hope this band becomes so famous b/c of this song.
I am so glad this song is being heard by so many people right now ont he radio.




How many times have you thought of all the days where you could have done something more to stop these God awful wars?

Citizen Soldier was recorded by 3 Doors Down as a tribute to the National Guard. Well, at least that's what the description at the official National Guard site says. That's all I know about this song at this point, other than the fact that it's free to download.


According to the band, this song was made as a tribute to citizens that fight against an oppressive government. Underground band news. You make up you're mind, apparently the guard payed them to make the video. So in a way they have admitted to selling out, but that's for you to decide. Either way it's a good song I think.

-------------------------------

Beyond the boundaries of your city's lights,
Stand the heroes waiting for your cries.
So many times you did not bring this on yourself,
When that moment finally comes,
I'll be there to help.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here.
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready because we will always be there.

When there are people crying in the streets,
When they're starving for a meal to eat,
When they simply need a place to make their beds,
Right here underneath my wing,
You can rest your head.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here!
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready because we will always be there...

There... there... there...

Hope and pray that you'll never need me,
But rest assured I will not let you down.
I'll walk beside you but you may not see me,
The strongest among you may not wear a crown.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here!
On that day when you don't have the strength for the burden you bear,
I'll be right here!
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
(Citizen soldiers)
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready because we will always be there.



Seems like there's a little awakening to political music in mainstream music.
