Inspired by Fun.
"Some Nights" by Fun. is an amazing song about war and the loss of one's personal mission in life. It has reminded me of our soldiers at war. With that in mind, I will writing 10 soldiers within the month of August.

Lyrics to "Some Nights", by Fun.

Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck, Some nights I call it a draw
Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle, Some nights I wish they'd just fall off

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for oh.
What do I stand for, what do I stand for
Most nights I don't know, anymore

This is it boys, this is war, What are we waiting for
Why don't we break the rules already, I was never one to believe the fight
Save that for the black and white type, I try twice as hard, still half as liked
But here they come again to jack my style

But that's alright, I found a martyr in my bed to night
Stops my bones from wondering, Just Who I am, Who I am, Who I am, oh, Who am I? Mmmm

Well some nights I wish this all could end, cause I could use some friends for a change.
And some nights I'm scared you'll forget me again, some nights I always win

So, this is it? I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of that for this? I miss my Mom and Dad for this?
No. When I see stars that's all they are. When I hear songs they sound just like this one.

Well this is it guys, this is all, five minutes in and I'm bored again
Ten years of this I'm not sure if anybody understands
This is not for the folks at home, Sorry to leave mom I had to go
Who the f@ck wants to die alone, all dried up in the desert sun?
Aw come on...
