This food just isn't filling
And I won't leave the building
And I don't even listen
And I won't be forgiven
All the federal agents are running away and they're ending negotiations
I hope I don't forget what I meant to say about the impermanence of nations
I can't start this over and I can't just rewind
To when kings fought in their own wars and you were mine

Years before the killing
And years before Pat Tillman
You were young and willing
And I wasn't such a villain
Now they're waiting for me to run out of air so they can send the SWAT team in
Despite the whiskey I can't help but care about the days before the movement was ready to begin
The smell of nerve gas takes me back to the time
When kings fought in their own wars and you were mine

They'll call me a madman
When the news explains what happened
But I can't stop laughing
At all this fun I'm having
There's a man on the other side of this wall with two children and a wife
Even though I know it'll mean my downfall, I just can't take his life
'Cause that could have been us, oh, baby, wouldn't that be fine
If kings fought in their own wars and you were mine
And you were mine
