Air/Sea Battle


War planes fly in the air
Raining bullets and machine gun fire
from the sky
Warships sail the sea
Firing missiles from their guns
While from below

It's an air/sea battle
And everyone's involved
It's every individual for themselves
Whether they like it or not

Pilots, soldiers, marines, and generals
They know what's at stake
They know what they must do

The skies aren't friendly
The sea isn't any kinder
But to anyone involved
They could care less about their surroundings
They're just wanting to survive
Throughout the day
Throughout the night
During this air/sea battle

    video game, reality or both?
    'And everyone's involved'
    They're just wanting to survive
    Throughout the day
    throughout the night
