lyrics

COLOR GUARD

VERSE I
Presumed guilty of being an American: Child of Babylon, and the great Satan.
Through all the accusations- we give more to the world than we take.
Our time, our money, our blood.
Our giving is second to none.
I signed on the line cause freedom is a gift that's gonna need protection.

PRE-CHORUS
And I get so sick, of all these haters tryin' to trip,
But if they move to snatch our freedom, I'll be packin' heat to meet 'em.
Wha'sup?!
Don't bring no beef. Attackin' our home with your beliefs.
Cause I got my people's back and may they know in fact.

CHORUS
I fight for the red, the white, and the blue.
I face off the enemy so you don't have to.
I defend what God gave to you and I.
And I hope that you all keep in mind,
I don't fight in hate, but for love of the United States.

VERSE II
I gotta choose between a family, livin' the dream, or taking on enemies.
I volunteer for the price to pay, cause if we don't stand we could lose it all anyway.
I don't have a wish to go to war, but I don't want it coming up to my front door.
We fight for even the pacifists, that are free with our defense.
Repeat PRE-CHORUS

BRIDGE
My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty-
of the I sing, yeah. Of thee I'm singin'.
Long may our land be bright with freedom's holy light.
Protect us by Thy might.
Let freedom ring. Let freedom ring.

We're the claws and the teeth.
We're the talons and the beak.
We're the keepers of the peace
against the jackals of it.
We're the colors of the banner and we don't run.
The flag's choir of fire together singin' loud.
Breath it in and then breathe out.
Exhaling shouting yeah!
Un-scared.
With our hands on our hearts
and our fists in the air singin' loud.
Breathe it in and then breathe out.
Exhaling shouting yeah.
Un-scared.
To fight those who dare to threaten freedom
and bring warfare.

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS and CHORUS.
