A silhouette we always see
Within the fire and debris
Courage in a shadow tall
Defying death in every call

Walking into flames of hell
Exactly where the beast does dwell
Fought with every ounce of power
Bravery shown in every hour

These the heroes who give their best
Who honor bravely their life's quest
Sacrifice they make each day
Aware of danger in their way

Those who'd give their life for you
Made of courage brave and true
We honor them with words of praise
For all the valor they portray.
