Young boy gets in trouble
every day again
Mamma asked him kid,
are you gonna live your life astray?
He said momma, don't be worried
I see the future in my head
A soldierboy I'll be till the day It be my death.

This uniform fits me well , made especially for me
the army life suits me, always been my destiny
no one ever knew this rage I feel inside
the only one who knows me is the gun I carry in my hand!

Every day I sneek towards my enemy and he hides away
but what I see before me is not the evil I must fight
it's inside
it's inside
and it'll come out one day!

They where wrong to say I could be a soldier no more
and took away what I was sent here for
if I can't do my life's work there is only emptiness left
my uniform in the corner now, robbed off it's worthyness
the gun that knew me so well they took away
it won't save me today!
won't save me today!

mamma I saw the future in my head
if I can't be a soldier boy then this day it be my death!
today I lay my head!

please don't cry
I don't want an everyday life
my dream is shattered
there's no more that matters
This is the time I mark my end
a soldier till death.
a soldier till death!

Last summer I went from one metal festival to another, after that I desided I wanted to try and write my own metal lyrics and this is the result of my first attempt. It's based on a true story.
I never did anything with it though

so all you metal fans out there, let me know what you think of it

I'm no lyric expert but to me it's spot on, a very clear image is portrayed in my mind.. While it seemingly refers to the past years, it's actually ageless, I guess. Very touching.
Also heard some different melodies for certain lines.

Does it come with a melody and/or metrum yet? I think it deserves to :]

thank you

I can hear a melody in my head, but I'm not a musician, I don't even play an instrument so putting music behind it would be a job for someone else, if someone is ever willing to do so
