My rifle at my side, my sword in it's sheath
Desperately needing something to revive me
But never completely at ease
Always prepared for the unexpected
Running, hiding, and scared to the point that I can hardly breathe
But never stopping to catch my breath

A day's work is never done
Always having to live life on the edge
A life that is not certain to dwell in this harsh world
Having to live, breathe, fight
On shallow land where you are hated
As is what you stand for

But as it stands
I will graciously sacrifice a precious gift
That can never be redeemed
At God's will
I shall fight 'till death
