Woke up screaming in bed
The silence taunts me
It's like I am there again 
But this nightmare calms me down
The fire licks my skin
I feel it burn away
 Pulling stream overhead 
My heart beats deafening 
I've never been so afraid 

But we were men
We walk the front lines
We defend our country with our lives 
We pretend to see truth in all these lies
'Cause in the end we were men

I close my eyes to hide 
 Their faces haunt me
My faith is hard to find
Your picture calms me down
I can't cope with the pain
 These pills don't work
They just leave me the same
I feel so weak today 
You made me strong 
So why did you take it away?
I'm trapped inside the afraid 

But we were men
We walk the front lines
We defend our country with our lives 
We pretend to see truth in all these lies
'Cause in the end we were

 Soldiers don't feel
 Though they do what they're told
You send them to war
But they never go home
You feel on their bones 
They fought through their veins 
We cry for their souls
That just can't take 

We live to fight another day
And serve our country without dismay 
For those who take us from our homes 
May God have mercy on their souls

We were men
We walk the front lines
We defend our country with our lives 
We pretend to see truth in all these lies
'Cause in the end we were men

[Repeat: x3]
We were men
