    Blood stains his trousers, sweat smears his brow
    And all he can think is "How'd I End up here, now?"
    But only for a moment, he's gotta stay focused
    Cuz enemies surround him and odds are looking hopeless
    He picks up his rifle, and loads a magazine
    Then ducks down for cover while surveying the scene
    His resolve never falters, when other mens wean
    Cuz he's more than a man... he's a fuckin' Marine

    I'm an OIF veteran, OEF veteran
    Terrorists are U.S.'s headache, I'm the excederin
    So all those people who have never been,
    Enjoy the freedom that me and my bretherens blood has been shed to win
    Cuz they don't know what it's like to be in a foreign country
    Wonderin' what I'm gonna do when the war confronts me
    But I am more than comfy,
    Cuz I'm similar to Dahmer, kinda like Manson.. and sorta Bundy
    An M4 is what I carry, my friend
    Cuz I don't know if I'ma ever see my family again
    Bomb goes off under ya' truck with no chance to defend
    And life flashes before your eyes and you're panickin' when..
    ..You start receiving sniper fire from a mile away
    Death is certain, but alive is what you're tryin' to stay
    I've seen this vision a thousand times and I'm not havin' it
    I didn't join the Corps to be a pacifist
    I'm cold blooded with a metal heart
    So you ain't meetin' Marines when I introduce you to the Devil, dog
    You fucked around wit' satan
    I'll shove a pitchfork up an insurgents ass.. then make him eat a pound of bacon
    Don't go arousin' my anger
    Cuz really it ain't nothin' to go 'n rack a round in the chamber
    And a .50 cal round? It's takin' heads off, duke
    'N put a hole in 'em big enough to fit a whole kevlar through
    I'm what the terrorists fear,
    To find their intestines hangin' from the tip of America's spear
    Cuz I'm a hell hound without a muzzle
    I'll hold someone down 'n pour Quik Clot down his throat with a funnel
    I'm for real, to pretend ain't me
    Cuz if you knew how many knives I carried on me, I'd get NJP'd
    I'm a new age Spartan, who wanna fight us?
    cuz in my past life, I wasn't Lionel Smith.. But Leonidis

    I will NOT fade quietly into the night
    If it's my time to go, I'm goin' out with a fight
    I do it all for my country, for them stars and them stripes
    From the first fog of dusk.. 'till the dawns early light
    I will NOT fade quietly into the night
    'Till the whole world's at peace, and there's no one to fight
    But until that day when i can light cigars,
    I'm gonna BRAWL for my Stripes 'n Stars

    This Marine life is the shit for me
    All the way from the Halls of Montezuma.. To the Shores of fuckin' Tripoli
    To the flag raising on Iwo Jima
    And when I made my first kill.. I gave the corpse a Clevland Steama'
    Cuz I'm sick of these bastids,
    I am the vengeance of the prisoners of war and the missing in action
    And no foe can stop me
    Even the CO dropped me in a drug test to see if I be smokin' poppy
    Cuz I'm outta my mind as soon as I leave the wire
    From Musa Qaleh, Now Zad and even Dwayer
    No flak, just a skivvy shirt
    I'll shoot an insurgents legs 'n turn his man dress to a mini skirt
    They say I'm crazy, I should pop pills
    Cuz my idea of hearts and minds.. is a failure to stop drill
    Cuz I'm a troubled soldier
    I'll take Marjah with an MRE bomb, a Jason mask and a muzzle loader
    These dudes cannot be for real
    Cuz fuckin' with a Marine's worse for your body than not takin' ya Doxy pills
    Plus I've got Rocky skills,
    And a thousand more like me, so if I die, my spirit still cannot be killed
    I hold the soul of Old Glory
    Foes who've rose before me, have all played Gulf.. with my 240
    So be expectin' ya' doom..
    When I roll through with Motor T Company.. 2nd Platoon... and

    We will NOT fade quietly into the night
    If it's our time to go, we're goin' out with a fight
    We do it all for our country, for them stars and them stripes
    From the first fog of dusk.. 'till the dawns early light
    I will NOT fade quietly into the night
    'Till the whole world's at peace, and there's no one to fight
    But until that day when i can light cigars,
    I'm gonna BRAWL for my Stripes 'n Stars

    I pray for peace and train for war
    Protect my country from shore to shore
    Bred to fight and trained to kill
    Never said die and never will
    So I..
    Pray for peace and train for war
    And I..
    Protect my country from shore to shore
    I was..
    Bred to fight and trained to kill
    And I've..
    Never said die and NEVER will

    yo this was dope. the flow on this was okay, cause some of the bars were too long. In the beggining your flow was spot on, but as the verses progressed you tapered off beat. overall this was dope, I respect all troops out doing this shit. Great vid, glad you had the opportunity to post it.


    hoo-rah!
