I hear the sirens, they break the silence;

We’re ready, for war.

The flash of bombshell, hot feel of shrapnel;

We’re ready, for war.

I dare not close my eyes, fighting lights up the skies;

We’re ready, for war.

My battle buddy dies, I won’t believe the lies;

We’re ready, for war.

But I got my M16, I got my magazine;

We’re ready, for war.

I see my teammate over there, he meets me stare for stare;

We’re ready, for war.

We try to make one last stand, and disappear forever in the sand;

We’re ready, for war.
