THE  MARINE  







We  all came together,
Both young and old
To fight for our freedom,

To  stand and be bold.



In  the midst of all evil,
We stand our ground,
And we protect our country  
>From all terror around.



Peace  and not war,
Is what some people say.
But I'll give my life,
So  you can live the American way.



I  give you the right
To talk of your peace.
To stand in your groups,  
and protest in our streets.



But  still I fight on,
I don't bitch, I don't whine.
I'm just one of the  people
Who is doing your time.



I'm  harder than nails,
Stronger than any machine.
I'm the immortal  soldier,
I'm a
U.S.  MARINE!



So  stand in my shoes,
And leave from your home.
Fight for the people who  hate you,
With the protests they've shown.  



Fight  for the stranger,
Fight for the young.
So they all may have,
The  greatest freedom you've won.



Fight  for the sick,
Fight for the poor
Fight for the cripple,
Who lives  next door.



But  when your time comes,
Do what I've done.
For if you stand up for  freedom,
You'll stand when the fight's done.

There comes a point in your life when you realize

who matters,

who never did,

who won't anymore...

and who always will.

So, don't worry about people from your past,

there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Give this heart to everyone you don't want to lose in 2008,

including me, if you care.

Try to collect 12; it's not easy!
