Heaven and Earth

Lone Soldier

I am a lone soldier
separated from a pack
I am a lone soldier
Watching my own back
I am a lone soldier
with my own mentality
A soldier that won't run
One of the few that can see
My voice as my gun
It might just be me
head up towards the sky
the ground to my knee's
I ask him why
I plead and i plead
I ask him for a sign
when the world will be free
Of poverty, Hate, Deception, and greed
I'm looking for the key
For a utopia in this life
i am a lone soldier
fighting this fight
I am a lone soldier
the word of prayer as my knife
I am a lone soldier
praying through the night
I am a lone soldier
hoping that an innocent, life
will be free of bloodshed
and the dead will cease
I am a lone soldier
one that's fighting for piece
piecing the pieces together
solving this puzzle
I am the one soldier
that's not looking for trouble
I am a lone soldier
trying to do no wrong
solely fighting for justice
committing no harm
I am a lone soldier
using my arms and my hands
i am a lone soldier
a sacrificial lamb
I am a lone soldier
knee deep in the sand
I am a lone soldier
wandering this wasteland
wondering how man
can cause such destruction
putting lives at risk
for solely deduction
i am a lone soldier
looking for amplification
or augmentation
to create a better society
..lone soldier
