lyrics

For the sunset warrior, a pyre gives rise,
And the brush burns red beneath the desert skies.
The dusty billows of acrid smoke,
There’s a fire in the engine,
Someone pulled the choke.

It’s rolling thunder through the days and nights,
Ain’t a moment passes without a fight.
Echoes ring out, bloodstains on the sand,
There ain’t a friend in this whole world,
But your chain of command.

Welcome to the desert of a thousand suns,
Where the heat beats down wherever it may fall,
There ain’t no pity, no justice for us all,
Only a man, just waiting there, to answer the call.

Daisy cutters on the mountain, a blow through the heart,
A land laid waste, another shot in the dark.
And when it’s all said and done,
You wonder, was it you who fired the first gun?

Welcome to the desert of a thousand suns,
Where the heat beats down wherever it may fall,
There ain’t no pity, no justice for us all,
Only a man, just waiting there, to answer the call.

They give you stars and stripes, 21 guns,
when they lay you down.
But there’s blood on the hands of the firing line,
You don’t hear a sound.

Welcome to the desert of a thousand suns,
Where the heat beats down wherever it may fall,
There ain’t no pity, no justice for us all,
Only a man, just waiting there, to answer the call.
