"State of the Nation" as written by Mercury Caronia and Jon Carin....
I see them marching off to war
They're looking so heroic
I'm told they won't be gone for long
But, it's a lie they know it
Ten thousand gone they won't return
Never to be seen again
Strategic games are all we learn
In the end
But, they say
Don't you worry about the situation
(a message from the telephone)
They're out there fighting for the state of the nation
(they're waiting for the chance to come home)
They always have to fight the alienation
(and realize they're fighting alone)
When night's mere memory fades to dust
We'll get back on our feet again
This war has nothing to do with us
But, somehow we're so involved in it
Well, don't you worry about the situation
(a message from the telephone)
They're out there fighting for the state of the nation
(they're waiting for the chance to come home)
Don't you worry about the situation
(a message from the telephone)
They always have to fight the alienation
(and realize they're fighting alone)
There's no place like home
There's no place like home
There's no place like home
I don't want to be anywhere else
