Bradley, that Bradley what did you do,
the one who let the world see what you got
to see too.
When you pass that wall and are told to stand
on that line, by some guard who doesn't know
his own behind. He will say this and he will
say that, but in his heart he will know what you
did was exact.
No one was there to bridge that gap, to stand
up to those who didn't give a crap. They're not
human they say, they're animals you see,
its just like killing a cow under a tree.
But you saw it different, you said to them no,
you can't keep killing these children, where
no one will know. I will speak out for their
kind you see,
because I'm a soldier, which means I am free.
Free to tell the truth, when all others run
you see I was trained to do the right thing,
even if it meant I could be hung.
So now I will sit on this wooden bed and see,
how long it will take, for my countrymen to
set me free. Will I ever walk outside to be free
again, or will I sit in this cell until the
the very end.
People tell me I shouldn't have done it but I
would like to think, that what I did my fellow
man would have done if he were me.
My neighbors may forget me, my family and even you,
But God told me he would be with me, he would
never leave me too.
So don't shed no tears, don't call me names,
because what I did, I would do again and again.
