Out Of Harms Way

Journey

He grew up in some forgotten Midwest town
His Mama raised him well
Barely getting by but he'd be okay as far as he could tell
The plant in town closed ten years ago
Now an empty ghost ship stands
For the last nine months he's tried to find a job
But there's nothing to be had

So he signs up to fight for Uncle Sam
The only choice he's got
To fight a desert war in another land
Only to find peace or not
He's a moving target in a desperate place
Everyday's a twist of fate
His family wonders if he'll make it home
Knowing his faith's his saving grace

Now he's waking up in a strange land
Face an even stranger day
Brave ones standin' tall
Keep them all out of harms way

So they send him home to his family
Nursing wounds that no one can see
Certain sounds and smells trigger flashback spells
That rewind the tragedy
His memories hold him prisoner cause of the violence he regrets
What was his ticket out is his nightmare now
And a war he can't forget

Now he's waking up in a strange land
Face an even stranger day
Brave ones standing tall
Keep them all out of harms way
