U.S. military personnel whose job is to crawl through enemy tunnels in search of the Viet Congs.
The tunnel rats were American and Australian infantry soldiers whose task was to carry out underground search and destroy missions during the Vietnam War. The Viet Cong guerrillas had built a complex system of tunnels in which they hid themselves and their weapons when they were under attacks. They were extremely dangerous, with numerous booby traps and enemies lying in wait.

Behind closed doors
Leaders make decisions with ambition for war
Multiple men are at the mercy of he who settles the score
Medals and awards are received as well as applause
For the one who puts most men in a corpse
Behind doors - no more masks are warn
Often times the past is reborn
Many are sworn into secrecy
Come on and walk with me
I'm unveiling the prevailing sin of centuries
It's called greed lust envy a million bucks
How many mass murderers are wearing khakis and chucks
Timbalands the heart of man devises wicked schemes
Look through the peephole of the priesthood and I see demons
But I can't scream cause sometimes I see me
I been the chief of all sinners y'all ain't gotta know me
I've been debated and hated by self righteous with no flaws
White robes and bibles but at night they got claws
-- The Tunnel Rats
