Just A Soldier

Eyes forward...
Shoulders back....
Keep that head held high
Don't you ever look away
And never can you cry

Never will you dare to dream...
Such feelings make you bolder
Because in this life's reality...
You are just a soldier

Stand in line....
Don't make a sound...
Remember what they've told you
There's no time for a heart to beat
No one will be there to hold you

Stamp out all those memories...
You can look back when you're older
For you must survive in the here and now
Know you will always be just a soldier
