"The War Is Over" as written by and Matthew Good....
A man once told me that life was like a collage
He said there's nothing much to spies like us
Just killing time, that's all
And there are spacecraft orbiting the earth
Guided by 90 year old Russians who haven't heard
The war is over, how do you feel?
And how have you been, baby?
How have you been?

Well, she got married and she had kids
And they fear sex and not the bomb
And the rest is just ad libbed
And me, I'm waiting for something
That does not come
For something to crack
For something to go wrong

I'm inside out
I'm inside out and I'd say

This is where we get off
This is where we do anything we want
This is where I amuse you
This is where I amuse you

A man once told me that life was like a collage
He said the truth is not radio friendly espionage
The war is over, how do you feel?
And where have you been baby?
Where have you been?
Well we got stuck and we got lost
Between good-bye and the chemical sky
And a nuclear albatross
When I sleep, I see rain
When I'm alone, I am in pain
And everything is not the same
As on the big screen

I'm inside out
I'm inside out
We're inside out
I'm inside out and I'd say

This is where we get off
This is where we do anything we want
This is where I amuse you
This is where I amuse you

(it's nothing much to spies like us)
This is where I amuse you

    General CommentThis song seems to be about the end of the cold war, even though it was written 5 years afterwards. To me it's the best song he has, which has opposite connotations from songs like 'born to kill' or 'weapon'. This one is simple: the war is over, how do you feel? Too bad this type of song doesn't exist globally. When the war in Iraq ends (I sincerely hope it does) I'll be singing this song at the top of my lungs.

    As for my personal use, this song is about reuniting with old friends, seeing how everyone is doing, how everyone has changed after a life changing event that all were witness to, like something after sept 11 where nothing will ever be the same.
