Were they lies? What was unsaid.
Or what was kept inside.
Your untempered anger vs. my unjustified pride.
You can't wrap your arms around me
And just be.

I'll march into the fray
And I so unarmed.
I'll keep the beat that makes you fierce
And I so afraid.
I'll be your drummerboy

You can't look me in the eyes
And say good luck and goodbye.
Turn on heel your pain has made you cruel.
Mine just left me wondering why
I've soldiered on.

I'll march into the fray
And I so unarmed.
I'll keep the beat that makes you fierce
And I so afraid.
I'll be your drummerboy

A boy is not a man he's a babe
And you would have me crawl in kind.
I broke your heart but it's not mine to mend.
Dissenting tones would not leave my mind alone.
I wish I had never been born.
Honestly.

I'll march into the fray
And I so unarmed.
I'll keep the beat that makes you fierce
And I so afraid.
I'll be your drummerboy.
