"When The War Ends" as written by and John Baldwin Gourley....
shed me from the universe
carry me from lies
it's been beautiful to find this world
and i'm sure it will when it ends
step into the corners
the darker, colder corners fit best
hang me from the ceilings
little mobile constellation lights
when the war ends, yeah
we'll wonder what it was about
and when we grow old, yeah
we'll all wonder how we missed out
i've got soulful days to counter evil ways
will we need it?
when the war ends, yeah
we'll wonder what it was about
and when we grow old, yeah
no one will ever miss you
so you know that you'll not be missed
closer to the clouds than anyone ever cared to see
close to the mountains, woods, oceans, and rivers and trees
close to the soulful days that counters all our evil ways
i've got soulful days to counter evil ways
will we need it?
when the war ends, yeah
we'll wonder what it was about
and when we grow old, yeah
we'll all wonder how we missed out
i'll bring you all along with me

    Lyric CorrectionShed me from the universe,
    Carry me from life,
    It's been beautiful to find this world I'm sure it will when it ends,
    Step into the corners the darker colder corners fit best,
    Hang me from the ceilings little mobile constellation lights.

    When the war ends, yeah
    We'll wonder what it was about,
    And when we grow old, yeah
    We'll all wonder how we missed out.

    I've got soulful days to counter evil ways
    Will we need it?
    Will we need it?
    When the war ends, yeah
    We'll wonder what it was about
    And when we grow old, yeah

    No one will ever miss you so you know that you'll not be missed,
    Closer to the clouds than any people ever cared to see,
    Closer to the mountains, woods, oceans, and rivers and trees,
    Closer to the soulful days that counters all our evil ways.

    I've got soulful days to counter evil ways
    Will we need it?
    Will we need it?
    When the war ends, yeah
    We'll wonder what it was about,
    And when we grow old, yeah
    We'll all wonder how we missed out.

    Bring you all along with me (x8).

    I've got soulful days to counter evil ways
    Will we need it?
    Will we need it?
    When the war ends, yeah
    We'll wonder what it was about,
    And when we grow old, yeah
    We'll all wonder how we missed out.
