Point Man

Look at every bush and movement in the trees,

Can’t see Charley but feel him looking at me.

Hold my fear in check, I can’t run and hide.

If I don’t do my job then everybody dies!

They depend on me to get them in close.

Stay downwind, yeah, Charley got a nose!

Better learn well, won’t get a second try,

Because if I don’t do my job then everybody dies!

Braver than brave, point man on a LRRP.

Yesterday John Wayne, today I’m Wyatt Earp!

You think I’m paranoid, I can see it in your eyes.

But if I don’t do my job then everybody dies!
