I hear the sounds of warm Summer days
Kids in the streets playing ghetto games
I hear the sounds of drum beats in the war
I hear the sounds of warm Summer days

Dan, the man, I got your letter
Good to hear that you do alright
I know I said I'd be back by the Summer
But now it looks like they've added time
Back at home now, man, life seems so simple
Anywhere you go you'll be alright
Since we spoke I've moved North of Brazillia
And I feel it's just a matter of time

I hear the sounds of warm Summer days
I hear the sounds of warm Summer days
I hear the sounds

And the names of the troops are with Angels
And we walk with death on our minds
Helmets, guns, wings and halos
You don't last if there's fear in your eyes
And if you could, just please go tell my Mother
Anything to keep her from crying
Yesterday in Fallujah
A suicide bome near took me out

I hear the sounds of warm Summer days
I hear the sounds of warm Summer days

Yeah, we pray for silence
We look for a way back home
Yeah, we pray for silence
We look for a way back home
Oh, they lied to us in Iraq!

Oh, we still can't find what we're looking for
Running down in the night, that won't help at all
And it looks like the stars are lined up to fall
Oh, we still can't find what we're looking for
Running down in the night, that won't help at all
And it looks like the stars are lined up to fall

When your innocent eyes wake up to find
Your feet in the boots in the sand
And instead of your phone, or your Ipod
Son, you've got a gun in your hand
Oh, I remember the day that I signed up
To pay for a school mom just can't afford
Then the lies that came crashing from bomb shells
Pulled you straight through Desert Storm

I hear the sounds of warm Summer days
Kids in the streets playing ghetto games
Up on the roof I take aim to the men
I feel the weight of America's hand
I hear the sound of drum beats in the war
Building it up, I'm gonna watch them fall
