Oh what great, terrible sound!
Loud enough to quake the ground, Ears ringing all around.
Quickly sight fades to white,the taste of metal, but that's not right.
I feel as though my chest is tight, am I to die on this night?
No pain I feel, my life not lost. I'll help my brothers, at all cost.
For they I swore to battle on, to always fight. And do what's right.
The enemy tried his very best, to bury me with all the rest.
But I'm a soldier, through and through, I.E.D's just will not do!
