The letter said it all,
We’re shipping out.
I know they got it wrong
Without a doubt.

The war ain’t over there,
It’s here with me.
The battle of
The bloody century.

That is going on here?
What becomes the lot of us?
I thought I would complain, dear,
when joining with the great circus.

But I’ve got high,
I’ve got high,
I’ve got high hopes tonight.
I’ve got high, alright.

‘settle up your bill,’ the raining shouts
The patter of forsaken voices loud.
Lined throughout the pockets of my vest,
A greenback skeleton holds in the rest.

A symphony of mercy
Falls upon no deafer eats
I’d look you in the eyes
But I wouldn’t recognise your fears.

But I’ve got high,
I’ve got high,
I’ve got high hopes tonight.
I’ve got high, alright.
