about

American Hitmen

The American Hitmen are a hard rocking group of Marine Corps combat veterans who met in 2004 during Operation Phantom Fury in Fallujah, Iraq.
They were the first rock band in 36 years to perform in communist Vietnam, when a Hard Rock Cafe was opened in 2009.
In 2013, the band made it through 3 elimination rounds and performed live in NYC, at Radio City Music Hall, on America's Got Talent!

Track Name: Sleeping Mind
I waited and watched as you fell asleep
The taste of your skin still alive on my tongue
I saw in your face a timeless expression
Of life and of love and of all things undone
And I said

Your sleeping mind
Your sleeping mind

Then I fell alseep as I cradled your body
Your warmth slowly spreading, our breathing in rhythm
Then I drifted away to the back of my mind
Where my thoughts wandered aimless in juxtaposition
And I said

Your sleeping mind
Your sleeping mind

Everything is safe and okay when I'm with you

Then suddenly walls started falling apart and I lost amidst all the chaos
So I tried to awake from that terrible dream but fell into a fit that I could not recover from
I'm lost in this nightmare
So very lost

But I'm with you forever
And I'll love you forever

Your sleeping mind
Your sleeping mind
Your sleeping mind
Your sleeping mind
Track Name: Bless Me
Oh baby control yourself
This couldn't be any harder
Just pretend that you're somebody else
And let me feed on your fodder

Oh don't you know what you do to me?
Don't act so naive little girl
Pussycat you're a wicked tease
You bless me with that body

Let me taste your glistening skin
I don't think you could be any hotter
I think I've got you all figured out, baby
Just south of the border

We've got to burn, burn, burn
Burn this mother to the ground
We've got to burn, burn, burn
We've got to burn it all down
When I say faster, faster, faster
Pussycat, we're gonna kill, kill, kill
We're gonna kill them all
Track Name: Inanimate Objects
She is the love that scorns
She is my crown of thorns
And I am not a man
A puppet in her hand

It's sadomasochistic how she runs my life on strings
She's a marionette with an all-star cast of inanimate things
It's sadomasochistic how she runs my life on strings
She's a marionette with an all-star cast of inanimate things

I will not let her in
She will surely win

It's sadomasochistic how she runs my life on strings
She's a marionette with an all-star cast of inanimate things
It's sadomasochistic how she runs my life on strings
She's a marionette with an all-star cast of inanimate things

She is the love that scorns
She is my crown of thorns
Track Name: Shout Some Loud
I can't explain the fury that I feel when I meet them
Dead beneath the weight of their war
And what's really messed up is I can do nothing for them
So I clean their blood, I clean their blood up off of the floor
And I shout some loud

And every time I hear those passages spoken
In a room full of sorrow and tears
I have a million words in my mind that I choke on
But futile are my words upon their ignorant ears
Shout some...

And every night in bed as I try to evade them
Their faces always ask me to try
To look beyond the death and the hate and the mayhem
And try to keep the damage I feel on the inside
So I shout some loud...
Track Name: Title of Liberty
There is nowhere left to go but down
Your blood will spill on this sacred ground
The choice is your to walk away
Your lives will end if you choose to stay
I want no more of this

Bloodshed's worn our souls so thin
You'll pay the price for the life of sin
Stand and fight and I'll seal your fate
Go and live it's never too late
I want no more of this

There is nowhere left to go but down
Blood will spill on this sacred ground
Stand and fight and I'll seal your fate
Go and live it's never too late
I want no more of this

Lay your arms down
You've come for a fight
You and I we can make it through the night
But if I call my captain will come
And to you he will say
Either lay down your weapons tonight
Or your lives we will take
Track Name: Nightmare Movement
I'll take a look all around me
My eyes wander up to the sky
And I see a world far below me
The reflection of life in my eyes

The spectrum of light glowing softly
For those who lack sight only feel
My loved ones collapse in a frenzy
Proving my terror is real

And it scares me
It scares me

My brother is broken and bloody
My father lies cold on the floor
My sister is laughing insanely
My mother screams out "Please no more"

And it scares me
It scares me
It goes on and on and on and on

By the water that eve, the sun that shines on me and you
And I'm eager to please for the faces we both knew
All these trials and these struggles we've been through

By the power of what we knew in stormy days and nights all alone
And from my point of view you've never felt so like home
All these trials and these struggles we've come to know
Track Name: From Here We Fail
Now this is a story all too appalling
About our brothers in arms who have fallen
Their story is laden with controversy
And this is the side that nobody wants you to see

To give us a good life, these warriors they put up a fight
They risk and they take life while you sleep at night
But they have no illusions of coming home to a parade
No their only hope is that none of them died there in vain

Run and hide then you criticize
Turn your back and walk away
Forget how they lived and exploit how they died
That's the price when you play in this game

But I'm not gonna say that you're not thankful for all the blood that we shed for you
Yeah, for you
Track Name: Broken Down & Dead
Hey, you're mine now!

I came into this world, with fire in my hand
I fed the demon child which made me understand
Said to him "Feel my burn, my cankered mind to speak
My broken promise bleed and it will all add to your greed"
Said to him "Feel my burn, my cankered mind to speak
My broken promise bleed and it will all add to your greed"

But it's all your own head
I'm feelin' broken down, I'm feeling broken down and dead

Hey, you're mine now!

Well she came into this world, with her broken heart in her hand
Said to the inner saint, which made her understand
She said to me "Feel my fire, my spiritual light you seek"
Intense and over drawn and it will all add to her greed
She said to me "Feel my fire, my spiritual light you seek"
Intense and over drawn and it will all add to her greed

But it's all in your own head
I'm feelin' broken down, I am feelin' broken down and dead

Hey, you're mine now
I'm feelin' broken down and dead
Track Name: Blackened
Have you ever seen the surface of the sun
Its blackened skin cuts you right down to the bone
It feeds off the fear that breathes out from your lungs
And drips dry your blood 'til you literally come undone
Black light sunset is here

So tell me the story about how all life will disappear

Every night the same dream I am sitting on the surface of
That which is left of the place that I once called home
I'm sitting, waiting, wanting the world I love
To save me from this hell I have come to know as...

Black light sunset is here
And his judgment rains down
And our lives will slowly disappear

So tell me the story about how all life will disappear
Tell me the story about how all life will disappear

Every night the same thing
Sitting on the surface of the sun
Every night the same dream
Waiting for the end of the world to come
Track Name: Born Again
I watched my friend's life slip away
Just the other day
I held on his hand as he screamed out in pain
He looked at me and said "some things must go this way"
So I got on my knees and I started to pray

I took another man's life, just the other day
I was on a mission and that man got in my way
I know that I will see so many better days
But for him I cannot say the same

Well you ask me if I ever killed a man
I tell you "yes, and I'll probably kill again"
Because I'm born again

Go, my brother
Be in peace
Leave the spoils
Of war at your feet
Track Name: A.C.S.
I saw it coming
And only time could tell
I made the perfect home
Couldn't be more far from hell
If it were up to me
You'd see pure white for eternity
But opposition spread like a virus And destroyed everything I loved

I'm gonna bring it down
I'm gonna bring it
I'm gonna bring it down
I'm gonna bring it
I'm gonna bring it down

I watched it killing
Could see it spilling pain
On children of our families
Our minds are choking
This black death raping all the Women of supremecy

I'm gonna bring it down
I'm gonna bring it down
I'm gonna bring it

We will preserve what's right
And to the death we'll fight
Cause on the right hand of God
We stand united as the Dogs of War
See it it saturate the people
With its concentrated evil
Funny how they'll bleed for a dime
But this curse it never works
It feeds on child and wife
Death never cycles life

I'm gonna bring it, bring it
Bring it down
I'm gonna bring it, bring it
Bring it down
I'm gonna bring it, bring it
Bring it down
I'm gonna bring it, bring it
Bring it down
I'm gonna bring it down
