When the Badge Comes Off - Lyrics

Dressed in blue,
Work hat on tight,
Embrace the book,
As the words ignite,
Saving souls,
Sacrifice own light,
Suppressed pain,
Hidden out of sight.

First on the scene,
Taught not to feel,
A heart of glass,
Shielding badge of steel,
When the badge comes off,
Home feels surreal,
Exposed memories,
Of ones ordeal.

How can I let go today,
When yesterday's hauntings replace,
Watching my loved ones cry,
With a knot in my neck to hide,
Take all the guilt away,
For the book's no longer the same,
When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.

Kiss their cheeks,
Before sunrise,
Flashing blue then red,
As eyes go blind,
Not who it was,
That took my surprise,
It's what they did,
To a child like mine.

How can I let go today,
When yesterday's hauntings replace,
Watching my loved ones cry,
With a knot in my neck to hide,
Take all the guilt away,
For the book's no longer the same,
When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.

Oh how can I let go today,
When yesterday's hauntings replace,
Watching my loved ones cry,
With a knot in my neck to hide,
Take all the guilt away,
For the book's no longer the same,
When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.

When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.
When the badge comes off,
All I feel is pain.
