That’ll be the end of the road
When my battered, embittered
Body and soul will go home

That’ll be the end of the war
When we finally lay down
The barrel and the blade and go home

By the sea, so wide and treacherous
By the land, so dark and dangerous
How can we have so far to go?

That’ll be the end of the law
Of Bible, Koran, Torah, lost and gone

And the sea, so wide and treacherous
And the land, so dark and dangerous
How can we have so far to go?

That’ll be the end of arms stretched wide
Of begging for bread, of emptiness inside.

And the sea, so wide and treacherous
And the land, so dark and dangerous
So far left behind

That’ll be the end of the war
When we finally lay down
The barrel and the blade and go home
