i can see how this will end
in a cloud of dust in a filthy war
i can see how this will end
where we’re still clinging
to whatever we can find

and all of this i’ve been through before
is a page that’s been torn
from that same old story
and we’re desperate
we’ll tear down the shelves to read a different ending

keep your head down, don’t let them see you
just rest here
keep your hopes high, it can’t be much longer now
can’t wake up
so we sat and waited for it to pass

i’ve been growing old
in these trenches
waiting for the white flag
to be waved
well i’ve been playing it right
right from the script
waiting for the same cue
to slow and just stop

all the lines of my face are filled with dust
and oh how i’ve learned to sleep so well in dirt
all the things i said i meant, but i wasn’t sure
all the words we never kept, but we had to say

it was never a secret
we never kept it quiet
we said what we said and we’ll say it again
this isn’t home

and all of this i’ve been through before
is a page that’s been torn
from that same old story
we’re desperate
and we’ll tear down the shelves to read a different ending

now i’m climbing up and getting out, i’m going home
