"2 + 2 = ?" as written by and Bob Seger....
Yes, it's true, I am a young man
But I'm old enough to kill
I don't wanna kill nobody
But I must if you so will

And if I raise my hand and question
You just say that I'm a fool
'Cause I got the gall to ask you
Can you maybe change the rule?

And you stand and call my upstart
Ask, what answer can I find?
I ain't saying I'm a genius
Two plus two is on my mind
Two plus two is on my mind

Well, I knew a guy in high school
Just an average, friendly guy
And he had himself a girlfriend
And you made them say goodbye

Now he's buried in the mud
Off in foreign jungle land
And his girl just sits and cries
She just doesn't understand

So you say he died for freedom
Well, if he died to save your lies
Go ahead and call me yellow
Two plus two is on my mind
Two plus two is on my mind

All I know is that I'm young
And your rules, they are old
If I've got to kill to live
Then there's something left untold

I'm no statesman, I'm no general
I know that I'll never be
It's the rules, not the soldiers
That are my real enemy

I'm no prophet, I'm no rebel
I'm just asking you "why?"
I just want a simple answer
Why it is I've got to die

I'm a simple-minded guy
Two plus two is on my mind
Two plus two is on my mind
Two plus two is on my mind
