    DANGER ZONE

    Did you ever enter the danger zone
    When the sounds you hear are not your own
    But those of a foe so stealthy and strong
    And your senses screamed that you’re not alone

    Did you ever glide up a strange canal
    Through the dark of night when the tigers growl
    In a foreign land where the cool winds howl
    And even the smell of the air seemed foul

    Did you ever walk on a jungle trail
    Perhaps on a path leading straight to hell
    And your prey was so close you could almost tell
    Where he lay in wait by his foreign smell

    Have you ever tread on strange terrain
    In the dark of night; in the heat and rain
    When each move brought a twinge of pain
    But you knew inside you would do it again

    Did you ever wonder why you were there
    In the danger zone, in the moon’s pale glare
    Just you and your friends in the enemy’s lair
    With the smell of death hanging everywhere

    Does your mind plays tricks when you’re all alone
    Have the things you’ve seen turned your heart to stone
    Have you held your breath to suppress a moan
    When your thoughts return to the danger zone.
