I board the train tonight
to run from the man that
appends all these years
on our lives to make us wise.
I was convinced I was not
innocent until tonight when
the truth, with a flare,
burnt the scales that were
paired to my eyes
and wrung them dry.

Would someone please hit the pause button,
please hit the pause button now that I'm here?
Would someone please hit the pause button
please hit the pause button 'cause I'm scared.
And, no I don't want to grow up and take on a
world that is so much bigger than I had ever known.
I'm just a child.

I killed a man tonight. It
was my first time in battle
for the country that asked
me to fight, so I fight. I
cannot shake from my brain
what I saw in his eyes. In
the moments I scoped out the
shots that would finish his
life my soul died.

Would someone please hit the pause button,
please hit the pause button now that I'm here?
Would someone please hit the pause button
please hit the pause button 'cause I'm scared.
And, no I don't want to grow up and take on a
world that is so much bigger than I had ever known.
I'm just a child.

I'm just a kid and I don't
want to grow up fast, I just
want to keep my shades on.
I'm just a kid. No I don't
wanna grow up fast, I just
want to keep my shades on.
I'm just a kid and I don't
want to drive your guns,
but I believe saving freedom.
I'm just a kid, but now I have
to grow up fast, so let's hit
play and save the children,
our children, from this.
