Shawn Kellner made the decision to go into the US Army in 2001. His EP far from home gives a first hand perspective of war, being away from home, and being away from love. It goes beyond political affiliation to touch what it is to be an American and what it means to be human.

BREATH SUPPORT

Written By: MUSICAL SOLDIER

I'm writing all these letters
that I know I'll never send.
A thousand thoughts running through my head. All these memories of days of old they slowly fade away. While all the memores of you and me I hope they dont fade away.

Days pass before my eyes and still I'm trapped inside all these planes as they fly away.

I dont know what I even bother staring up at the stars when I am here and you are so far away. All these memories of days of old they slowly fade away. While, all these memories of you and me they slowly fade away.

Days pass before my eyes and still im trapped inside all these planes as they fly away. They fly away. They fly away, they fly away. With out me. With out me With out me

WONDER WHAT YOUR THINKING

Written By: MUSICAL SOLDIER

I'm sitting here thinking about everything. How can so much change in so little time and always leave me right back here.

I wonder what your thinking about right now. Are we staring at the same stars in the sky ya i wonder what your thinking about right now are we looking each other in the eyes.

7000 miles tried to tear us apart but I knew when I left so I gave you my heart.

7000 miles tried to tear us apart but I knew when I left so I gave you my heart.

7000 miles tried to tear us apart (so I'll write you this letter) but I knew when I left ( and ill wish upon this star) so I gave you my heart. (and wherever i go i wont feel that far away)

7000 miles tried to tear us apart (so I'll write you this letter) but I knew when I left ( and ill wish upon this star) so I gave you my heart. (and wherever i go i wont feel that far away)

I wonder what your thinking about right now. Are we staring at the same stars in the sky ya i wonder what your thinking about right now are we looking each other in the eyes.
