I left to fight another day
You shot my back anyway
Because you said that I was weak to run away
But that's the difference between me and you
And the way we handle feuds
I'll quit the quagmire but all you know to do is shoot

You can't tell me where we stand
Or that I'm any less of a man
I fought so hard with no gain at all
And you know you can't pretend
When we're standing at the end
That it was my choice to let this fall

I rattle
My cage
As a step back from the battle
Deliriously running wide eyed through the combat zone
I watch
The fight
As I pour another scotch
And I step back from my troops all alone

I fought for nothing
I exist for something
That I'll never understand
I felt it coming
I died while running
From a dictator in a foreign land
