TITLE (EDIT)
Shadow Of A Soldier
DESCRIPTION
15 April 2013

Inspiration was reliving a horrible flashback moment from my first deployment when I lost my best friend and two other good buddies. Both Iraq and Afghanistan haunt me at night with the lives of fallen friends from both. It's something that unless your a soldier and have experienced it then you will never understand. Music is my outlet and my therapy.

Shadow Of A Soldier
John Emery


Just a man tryin to find his way threw the world.
Walking the tightrope tryin hard not to fall.
Wonder the land, let my fists unnnnncurl.
As I sit back and try to take in it all.

Youse to be a soldier,
fighting on foreign lands.
Believe in what I was doin,
fight till my last breath.
Now I'm a civilian,
time to unclench my hands.
The other side of the fence,
now I feel closer to death.

I did an honorable job,
my brothers on my right and left.
Now I work in a factory,
trying hard to suppresssss.
The feelings of what I once was,
one who answered the countries call.
A shadow of a former soldier,
stairs back from the mirror on the walllll.

I'd be lying if I said it didn't cross my mind.
Every time I see a soldier killed on the news.
Wonder if I could of saved that liiiife
What am I doing here,
this doesn't feel riiiiight.
Haunted by the dreams,
That come night after night.
Could I make the difference,
bring a young kid back to his wife.

Yeah Crowds give me anxiety,
sweat and get the shakes.
Loud noises make me yell "CONTACT RIGHT!!!",
and hit the ground.
People stare and laugh when it happens.
Can't get the past to just stay down.
Does this mean I'm not normal?
Lookin deep into my soul.
Looking for an answer that I already know.

That I did an honorable job,
my brothers on my right and left.
Now I work in a factory,
trying hard to suppresssss.
The feelings of what I once was,
one who answered the countries call.
A shadow of a former soldier,
sairs back from the mirror on the wallllll.
