Simple thoughts of a common man...

Young guns....

Once a nation of warriors

Playing army out in the back
sticks in boy's hands
taking cover behind a haystack
BANG, BANG, BANG someone throws an empty can
GRENADE, hit the deck Mac
we are being counterattacked Sam
we can take them, take cover by the shack

From the back door Mom calls "Lunch"
damn Sam, we had them
Mac throws a nice little punch
catch's Sam on the arm, that was dumb
they hit the ground rolling around "LUNCH"
I had you Sam, ahh Mac you're a bum
and here we go again

Smoke and dust fill the air
the smell of despair
Cover me Mac, got you Sam
and the mortar lands
Mac could hear the screams
someone's injured it seems
he sees Sam's lifeless body lying in the sand...

Once a nation of warriors
