my lyricsbox
I am a soldier I'm a slave of power
Power so great that it can destroy God's world with one mighty blast
I'm a machine a computer an engine programed to reap
destruction wherever I go
I'm a bad risk for my credit is only backed up by the
United States Government

My reputation is that of a braggard a sex fied a cheat and rusted hero
I'm a killer paid and trained to hit first before being hit and I do
I'm a soldier so who cares how dirty the job is if
it has to be done then it's done
Right but I'm also a human being I am myself good or bad

I smell the flowers in the spring I hear the birds
sing in the early morning
I feel the warmth of a fire in the winter and I feel
the rain as it moinstens my brow
I'm a part of family with God as my father and me the obediest child
I have wants and needs and I have the strength and
the faith to fullfill them

And I have passion the kind of passion that brings forth a love so great
That no war no tragedy or no other being could ever destroy
I'm a human being and I feel I feel the things all around me
And I'm grateful I'm so very grateful

I'm also an American and I'm proud
I'm proud because I have the right to worship God as my Master
The right to love a wife children mother and father
Without the fear of political reprisal

My country gives me the right to build to destroy
And to rebuild to better proportisions
I am an American I have the right to listen the Star Spangled Banner
The right to feel a chill throughout my entire body
when I look at the flag our flag

I have the right to defend to honor to pay tribute
To the great ones who've come and gone before why
Because I'm an American and because I'm an American I can also cry
I can cry for my lost brother who died defending our way of life
I am an American and I'm proud proud because I am
This song is from the album "My Life/But You Know I Love You [Decca]".
