Soldier (Video)

I take aim from the kitchen window
I take aim from up and down below
I take aim from the tree in your backyard
I fall asleep, but I'm always on guard

I take those shots, but I have no authority
I take those shots, but I'm not guilty
I'm just a soldier in another war
It doesn't matter who I'm guilty for

I don't stop 'til the end of the show
I don't stop 'til my country says so
I don't know why I raise this hell
I'm just a soldier, fighting for someone else

I got a big ol' family
I got a wife, and she's waiting at home for me
I cleanse my sins as I walk through that door
It doesn't matter who I'm guilty for

I don't stop 'til the mission is done
I don't stop 'til they tell me I've won
I don't know why I waged this war
I'm just a soldier in it for one more

My family, they cover me
My family, they cover me
Everything I see is what I believe
I am not guilty, no, I am not guilty
I am not guilty, I am not, yeah

I don't stop, not even in my dreams
I don't stop seeing things that I've seen
I don't know why I raise this hell
I'm just a soldier fighting for someone else, whoa

I'm just a soldier, yeah, I'm just a soldier, soldier, soldier
Don't take it so personally, yeah
I'm just a soldier, I'm just a soldier, soldier, soldier
