Lyrics

We were safe in the picture
Locked in that frame
Me in my military uniform you dressed in white
Taking my name
Now were caught in the middle, stuck in no mans land
Fighting this battle the best that we can

I know I'm a soldier but I'm a ghost of myself
So far from heaven living this hell
I can't shed this armour and I'm turning to stone
Just one more soldier who can't find his way home

Sometimes in the back yard, I play ball with the kids
It's all fun and games till they throw me a pass shout "hey dad catch this"
All I see is shrapnel and I fall to the ground
They come running to my rescue but can't calm me down

They call me a soldier but I'm a ghost of myself
So far from heaven living this hell
I can't shed this armour and I'm turning to stone
Just one more soldier who can't find his way home

Oh I try, and I try
To keep marching forward, fight through this torture inside yes I try..

To stand like a soldier, be my old self
Cause I'm so far from heaven here in this hell
I can't shed this armour and I'm turning to stone
Just one more soldier who can't make it back home
