I am man hear me roar
Sent by cowards out to war
While they sit high at the top
As I watch my brothers drop

I am man hear me roar
I stand here as bullets soar
A true soldier down to the core
Shedding blood for my country
My home a distant memory

I am man hear me roar
As I fight this war in Nam
For the sake of uncle Sam
I come home a broken man
From the things that I have seen
Watching all my brothers bleed

I am man hear me roar
Waking up in these cold sweats
Things I've seen that I regret
Baby killer you should burn
A soldiers welcome upon return
I hang my head as if in shame
While the Bankers take no blame

I am man hear me roar
I fight here on foreign land
Drafted in but still I stand
I storm this beach as bullets fly
Bombs cascading from the sky
Bullets hitting brothers die
The only time a soldier cries

I am man hear me roar
Voices heard from every where
My gun is gripped my eyes are flared
While bankers sleep without a care
A soldier roars from these nightmares
