  1. I'm a Soldier

From the recording Chains

Lyrics

You thought I’d give up
You thought I’d drown
You thought I’d give up
You thought I’d drown
You can chain my ankles and my wrists 
You can strip me of my clothes, ditch me in the cold 
You can stand me up, hurl bricks and sticks 
Screaming slurs, worse, cursing my family and kids 
You expect me to quit? I’ve been broken you can’t break me 
There’s nothing on this wide earth, that could save me 
You could feed me to devilish heathens, as long 
As I’m breathing, there's someone to believe in 

I’m a soldier 
The one who cared when nobody cared, 
The one who was there when you felt like quitting 
I’m a soldier 
Emerging from the shadows of the night 
Who waved his arms and silenced the opposition 
I’m a soldier 
The one who spoke his mind, didn’t care what they thought 
And in the name of what was right, he fought 
I’m a soldier 
Got beat to the ground, kicked dirt in his mouth,
He wiped the dripping blood from his brow 

I’m a soldier 
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier 
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier

Make with what I got, start building a five and dime,
Sacrificing all my time, staying out of crime, out of trouble 
Cause what good is it to my family if I end up lifeless in the rubble
All cause I couldn’t afford a ford 
Heat or A/c, earn what is mine 
Fuck the club, give me thirty minutes of studio time 
Give my last breath for success, already gone
Before you look, Ill drag down the moon if that's what it took 

I’m a soldier 
The one who cared when nobody cared, 
The one who was there when you felt like quitting 
I’m a soldier 
Emerging from the shadows of the night 
Who waved his arms and silenced the opposition 
I’m a soldier 
The one who spoke his mind, didn’t care what they thought 
And in the name of what was right, he fought 
I’m a soldier 
Got beat to the ground, kicked dirt in his mouth,
He wiped the dripping blood from his brow 

I’m a soldier 
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier 
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier

I'm in it, I'm in it, 
I'm in it, you gotta love it 
Impossible nobody’s done it fuck it 
I'm on my last dollar
These hard times make me wanna holla 
Spending frugal resorting to ramen noodles 
Who’da thought I’d be well acquainted with the cousin of death 
I can’t move its like I’m under cardiac arrest
No food to supply energy needed to succeed 
But real G’s run even when the tank’s on E

I’m a soldier 
The one who cared when nobody cared, 
The one who was there when you felt like quitting 
I’m a soldier 
Emerging from the shadows of the night 
Who waved his arms and silenced the opposition 
I’m a soldier 
The one who spoke his mind, didn’t care what they thought 
And in the name of what was right, he fought 
I’m a soldier 
Got beat to the ground, kicked dirt in his mouth,
He wiped the dripping blood from his brow 

I’m a soldier 
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier 
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier
Two, one, two, one, two
I’m a soldier
