About Citizen/Soldier

"Citizen/Soldier" is a single by the American alternative rock band 3 Doors Down from their self-titled album 3 Doors Down. The song was released as a single in November 2007 in conjunction with a recruitment campaign by the United States National Guard. The lyrics convey the band's views regarding the actions performed by the Guard. It was released as the third single for American active rock and mainstream rock radio stations in November 2008, while it is their fourth overall single. A music video (directed by Antoine Fuqua) released to movie theaters, the National Guard website, and other outlets portrays the history of the Guard and employs current members of the Guard as actors. It is also featured on the band's fourth studio album. The Citizen/Soldier promotion was also featured on the #88 Hendrick Motorsports car driven by Dale Earnhardt, Jr. during the 2008 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 17, 2008. 3 Doors Down was also featured on a Busch Series car that Earnhardt owned in 2003, and was driven by Tony Stewart.

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.

And 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've 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've sheltered.
We'll always be ready because we will always be there.

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

On the day when you need your brothers and sisters to care.
I'll be right here.
On that day when you don't have 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.
Standing on guard for the ones that we've sheltered.
We'll always be ready because we will always be there.
