American Warrior

James Bene

Lyrics

A small town boy lived by the river

He was a fighter, a survivor

Lost inside the mines of this mechanic war

Clenched a purple heart blood-stained and torn

He was a hot blooded Casanova

But he believed in angels

Cause he perceived in something else

And he saw a vision of a phoenix

Rising above Los Angeles

I knew him way before the crowd started cheering

When nobody would give him a second chance

I knew him when he was that star-crossed dreamer

The American Warrior

I knew him way before the sky started crashing

When he'd lay alone crying in his bed

It took some time before the lion stated roaring

The American Warrior

Evolution leads to confusion

Creation breaks through all dissolution

Technology ignites robotic hands

Blazing ammunition at all who stand

Against extra-terrestrial demands

But he believed in angels

Cause he perceived in something else

And he saw a vision of a phoenix

Rising above Los Angeles

I knew him way before the crowd started cheering

When nobody would give him a second chance

I knew him when he was that star-crossed dreamer

The American Warrior

I knew him way before the sky started crashing

When he'd lay alone crying in his bed

It took some time before the lion stated roaring

The American Warrior

Gold and black flag I'm a warrior

Take it all back like a warrior, a warrior

Dreams escape through the cracks seep into the ground

Won't surrender my heart to this ghost town

I knew him way before the crowd started cheering

When nobody would give him a second chance

I knew him when he was that star-crossed dreamer

The American Warrior

I knew him way before the sky started crashing

When he'd lay alone crying in his bed

It took some time before the lion stated roaring

The American Warrior

Gold and black flag I'm a warrior

Take it all back like a warrior, a warrior

Take it back gold and black

Take it back Again

For every mood
