If I don't come home it's because I didn't break
Cause I'm the bravest soldier and I've taken all I'll take
If I die before I awake, don't tell me my mistakes
Cause I'm the bravest soldier and there's just so much at stake

And I'll never be sorry that I'm not always home
Cause I've seen something better, something that you'll never know
And I'm the world's greatest, something I'll never show
And I'll never be sorry that I'm made of skin and bones

On these baring streets is where I fight for my cause
In the eyes of strangers who see me as someone to praise
Not someone to blame, wipe of their tears and they pray
They pray for a river to swim in, they pray for a sky that's not grey, and they pray

And I'll never be sorry that I'm not always home
Cause I've seen something better, something that you'll never know
And I'm the world's greatest, something that I'll never show
And I'll never be sorry that I'm made of skin and bones

Between the fame and me is a ground that is concrete and cold
I wear a medal on my chest to show you I've done something good
It doesn't matter but it should, a badge for the misunderstood
And I know what I'm missing, if I could tell you I would, I would

And I'll never be sorry that I'm not always home
Cause I've seen something better, something that you'll never know
And I'm the world's greatest, something that I'll never show
And I'll never be sorry that I'm made of skin and bones
