Dead Heroes
(by Darren Hill)
Dead heroes - I see them lying in the grave
Dead heroes - I hear them calling out my name
Dead heroes - I gotta fight for the cause
Dead heroes - for the red white and blue!

What does it take for us to win?
Dead heroes on the news at ten.
I'll fight for a better way, to be a dead hero for the U.S.A.

I've got, I've got to be free - these kids will never see twenty.
I've got to get my name on the list - I've to die, like all the rest.

CHORUS:
Dead heroes!  That's the price you pay
Dead heroes!  For the U.S.A.
Dead heroes!  There's a better way
Dead heroes!  For the U.S.A.

We've gotta fight - I don't know why
We've gotta die - tell me why
I've got to kill - that's the American way
(repeat)

1000 miles of endless screams, where all the dead heroes lay
I've got the choice to set my knife, I've got the courage to set my life
I've got the day I'll pick to die.  Gotta hate someone, I don't know why
I'll fight for a better way, be a dead hero for the U.S.A.

repeat chorus
