When the so-called end of the war in Iraq was announced early this year (2004), it didn't sit well with me. While people were claiming the war was over, I believed that it was just beginning.

This track is dedicated To All The Soldiers of the US Armed Forces in Iraq as well as all the other combat zones around the world.

"TO ALL THE SOLDIERS"

Copyright 2003 - Taurus M. James. All Rights Reserved. (Lyrics and Mix)

Thanks to Todd O. Jones for the sketch!

A short track that I put together in about 15 minutes using Sonic Foundry's Acid for the music mix and Vegas for the vocal layers.

LYRICS

To all the Soldiers overseas in a land that ain't home/
Staring Death in the face in the many war zones/
Realize, I recognize the courage you've shown/
And I'm praying that God will grant your safe return home/

Dear Soldier, I know you're on your job, I'll make this short/
I just wanted you to know that you got my support/
And the prayers of my wife and I are staying on you/
And the thoughts I'm having lately, are focused on you/
You're on the front lines of battle out to get the job done/
Keep your spirits up, keep your focus, til the battle's won/
I for one, support you in the things that you do/
Accept these words from my heart as my thanks to you/
You may have thought twice, but you still made the sacrifice/
Leaving family and friends to live the "Combat Life"/
I know it's hard, but I won't pretend to understand/
All the things passing through your mind in those lands/
As you march across the grounds I only see on TV/
As you control the airspace and dominate the sea/
I pray, for your protection and your efficiency/
And the ultimate safe return to your family/

To all the Soldiers overseas in a land that ain't home/
Staring Death in the face in the many war zones/
Realize, I recognize the courage you've shown/
And I'm praying that God will grant your safe return home/

Another one of my experimental Hip-Hop beats for my man "The Producer" (Vic). Just an old school idea with my flavor added to it.

This is a remake of the song I did back in 2003. I used a couple of samples in the original song, but I wanted to have track with my own original composition. So, here it is.
