So the air's getting colder,
and the news keeps us scared.
We still wrestle this summer
from the bones of our tired and blistered hands.
'Cause tonight we got drinks
and just a couple of friends,
and the girl that my brother likes is finally talking to him.
And his chest is all swelled like he's proud and happy,
He's got a great idea,
like he's making a memory.

Wake up and come out to the car.
There's an east swell coming
and it's howling off shore, and we'll be
lying like lions out in the sands.
But I'll be dead before you put a gun in my brother's hands.

So we make jokes back at home,
and we lighten the mood.
Growing up, my parents thought
that sending a kid to fight'd be really cool.
Now with the war I can tell they're a little shook up.
Guess a few mother's sons will never really be enough...
Until half of our names are etched out in a wall,
and the other half ruined from the things we saw.

Wake up and come out to the car.
There's an east swell coming
and it's howling off shore, and we'll be
lying like lions out in the sands.
But I'll be dead before you put a gun in my brother's hands.
