so the soldiers soak up all the sun
and the company is continually struck dumb
now everyone wonders where we're from
while the level-headed are heading for their homes
way before they come
all i know is i'm never gonna go
the safe way home
so heres a clue for all you new boy destroyers
never ever think about granting us piece
but please relieve the clarity and forget them
before our loyal own start moaning like children
before their uniformed brethren
send them to heaven
all i know is im never gonna go
the safe way home
quality time with the unkind is better than being alone
it's all i know
why does every evening have to end this way
huddled in a bundle in a dark dark doorway
freezing please baby throw down some keys
let this kitten in
meow it's me
all i know is i'm never gonna go
the safe way home
quality time with the unkind is better than being alone
it's all i know
why does eveery evening have to end this way
why oh why does every evening have to end

    General CommentThis song reminds me a lot of the movie Jarhead. Even though the soldiers are at war, they're more concerned about their wives and girlfriends back home being unfaithful to the point where they're nearly destroyed in some instances.

    General CommentWhen I hear this song it makes me think of Hey Mercedes drawn in a comic book style and killing bad guys. Bob Nanna kicks ass.
