tell me when it's over
i would not dare open up my eyes
i'm seeking out a deep buzz, yeah
'cause they are only soldiers with kids and wives

but i'll know when it's over
when the light goes from my head
why can't it just be over
i've been gasping for a breath
that never came
that breath just never came

and you've been gone forever
it's good to see you out the hospital
and you've been gone forever
it's good to see you getting better

and everyone's a pop star
yes everybody's going to make it
and you could be the next one
just don't you dare say what you really feel

i know that you are not smart
i just didn't know you were that stupid
but seriously it's so hard
the bills are scattered in the yard
we need some songs to help us through this war

and you've been gone forever
it's good to see you out the hospital
and you've been gone forever
it's good to see you getting better

and you've been gone forever
it's good to see you out the hospital
and you've been gone forever
it's good to see you getting better
