You guard us through the night
Up above while we're below
You protect us through the dimmest light
In our underworld's soft glow
Harsh white above, but red down here
You cover us with our lives
Assure us soft, nothing to fear
I imagine you up there, cozy with your guns and knives
Fair white knights without your steeds
Protecting ladies fair
From doers of such dirty deeds
You look in their faces, find no mercy there
I love you up there, not even being paid
Willing to pay the ultimate price
Sacrificing yourselves for us if we're waylaid
If anyone attacks, your blades at their throats in a trice
Did I ever tell you I love you?
Did I ever show my gratitude?
In honor I thank you.
