Man Down!

This song is by Queensrÿche and appears on the album American Soldier (2009).

Hey, I'm okay
Another day, another nightmare begins
And the sound that I hear
Is the relentless fire in my head

Shifting gear in the driver's seat
As the finger of God signals me
And this concrete bloodline carries me
Never thought I'd bring the war back home

I'm a number, I'm a casualty of war
For a cause I never had the chance
Didn't understand the score
They told me that I'd be okay
Assume civilian life, live day to day
But when I think about it my hands still shake
And I know what I am
Man Down!

I'm in overdrive, barely alive
As long as I keep moving, I'm all right
Was that a muzzle flash from my past
Or just my mind misfiring?

With one eye in the mirror I see
The "Cavalry of God" coming up on me
Bumper to bumper, traveling fast
Waving Satan over

I'm a number, I'm a casualty of war
For a cause I never had the chance
Didn't understand the score
They told me that I'd be okay
Assume civilian life, live day to day
But when I think about it my hands still shake
And I know what I am

Oh, I know what I am

Shifting gear in the driver's seat
As the finger of God signals me
And this concrete bloodline carries me
Never thought I'd bring the war back home

I'm a number, I'm a casualty of war
For a cause I never had the chance
Didn't understand the score
They told me that I'd be okay
Assume civilian life, live day to day
But when I think about it my hands still shake
And I know what I am
Man Down!

I'm a number, I'm a casualty of war
For a cause I never had the chance
Didn't understand the score
They told me that I'd be okay
Assume civilian life, live day to day
But when I think about it my hands still shake
And I know what I am
Man Down!

I'm a casualty of war
(Man Down!)
