Mud on my boots fear in my soul
Looking out for Charlie on the evening patrol
Heard he's been sighted three clicks to the west
Before morning gets here we'll be put to the test
I light up a cigarette there's incoming rounds
Ashes ashes all fall down

Sergeant's beside me his left hand is gone
He can't get a grip but he's trying to hang on
I've got my flak jacket my helmet's in place
Shrapnel is flying I don't want to lose face
Napalm fills this nightmare with a sizzling sound
Ashes ashes all fall down
Ashes ashes all fall down

Cries of the wounded are making me cringe
As I dig through my bag for another syringe
My hands are shaking as I look for the vein
The screaming will stop when the blood hits the brain
Cremate my memories cast them all around
Ashes ashes all fall down
Ashes ashes all fall down
All fall down
