The start to an ordeal is never easy
Reaching down deep to find the follow through can be painful
It can make you want to turn back, give up, curl up in a ball
And yet, there is so much awaiting you on the other end of it all
Look, you know it won’t be easy but…
Success is usually worth the price of admission
Wearing the itchy stuff seemed such a hassle
Of course, when it was cold outside it was nice and warm
On the account of rain, socks made of it were bliss
Looks like being itchy was the price to pay for happiness
Purchasing liberty through sacrifice
Red stained trails through foreign lands
It fulfilled a solemn oath
Cutting freedom away from the oppressor’s grasp
Ensuring another day for democracy
Don’t you understand how good of a price this is?
Even shipping and handling is free, so how can you pass on this?
And if you want two, well we’ll throw that second one in on us.
Let your fingers do the walking and call us now. Operators are standing by.
Till the fat lady sings they say
Hero could hear her warming up now
Even as he pulled his sword out of its sheath
Everything had gone to hell so quickly
Now Hero screamed as he charged into battle
Death would pay a price to have his soul today
