I was bound to something bigger
And more important than a single human life
I wore my uniform with honor
My service was not a sacrifice
But what saves you in the battle
Can kill you at home
A soldier, soldiering on

You don’t fight for yourself
You fight for the ones by your side
And they do the same for you
And to live you must be willing to die
But what saves you in the battle
Can kill you at home
A soldier, soldiering on

Suck it up, shut it down
It don’t matter how you feel
Mission first, just drive on
A soldier is a cog inside a wheel
Up or down, all for one
The closest family I have known
A soldier, soldiering on

I was bound to something bigger
And more important than a single human life
I wore my uniform with honor
My service was not a sacrifice
But what saves you in the battle
Can kill you at home
A soldier, soldiering on
