Veterans Day Tribute - Watch Now!

Please join me in thanking all veterans for their service and sacrifice.  This song, Survival, was written about the feelings of returning veterans.  When you see a veteran in the airport, or walking down the street, or even out shopping, please take the time to thank them for their service.

My family has deep military roots that make me proud to be an American and want to give back.   Survival is available on The Essential Rocky Athas - Volume II and this week a portion of all  sales of this album will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project.  You can help by downloading a digital copy of the album HERE or if you prefer a physical CD, you can purchase it HERE.  Thanks for supporting our veterans! 

SURVIVAL - LYRICS

Why did you pick me?

There must be someone else.

What have I done wrong?

Being all alone,

I sure do miss my home.

I sure do miss my home.

 

Bodies all around, 

My best friend... he's shot down.

Why was I the one to endure

The threat of SURVIVAL?

 

I know what we do is right,

And I'm feeling your prayers tonight.

I'm feeling your prayers tonight.

Cause it's a dirt poor country here.

These people's lives are filled

With pain and tears.

Lives are filled with tears.

 

Bodies all around.

My best friend... he's shot down.

Why was I the one to endure

The threat of SURVIVAL?

 

So far from home,

And I'm all alone.

Stuck here on the darkest night

That I've ever seen before.

 

Now, they say we're wrong.

They've been lied to for so long.

Lied to for so long.

 

And many men have died,

At home their families cried,

Their families cried.

 

Bodies all around.

My best friend... he's shot down.

Why am I the one to endure

The threat of SURVIVAL?

 

Bodies all around.

My best friend...he's shot down.

Why am I the one to endure 

The threat of SURVIVAL?
