Kill or be Killed


Trapped in your foxhole all night and day
Waiting for the moment that you can break away

Muddy water all the way to your waist
Killing your enemies without any haste

Kill or be killed
Fighting for your life
Kill or be killed
Fighting to stay alive

Napalm blowing holes in the ground
Dead bodies lying all around

Everyday you wish it would end
Driving you insane wondering where it began

The flow of blood running in streams
The smell of flesh the sound of screams

Trying to stay awake with all your might
If you sleep now you may lose your life
