LYRICS

I'm a soldier praying for




A coup older than Rome
To be who I was before the war
How long before we are home?

I've done some good that is true
But my secrets make a stomach of stones
I keep them swallowed just to protect you
The burden is being alone

How long before we are home?
How long before we are home?

Today's a shadow, the past is clear
A twilight vision cold as chrome
Tonight I sleep with you my dear
How long before we are home?

When conscience cannot be appeased
When fury is trapped 'neath my skin
I hide in my shell
Or rage against ease
Not even a hero gets in




How long before we are home?
How long before we are home?

Then I was but one man / Now I'm two I fear
One trapped behind enemy lines / One who's standing clear
One tending to a dying friend / One tending to his beer
One turned to face the foe again / One sitting pretty here

One frozen in a mine field / One waiting at the stop
One running in the darkness / One dancing 'till he drops
One choked with sudden terror / One choked with laughing tears
One turned to face the foe again / One sitting pretty here




Remember ..

Remember me so I forget myself
Untangle my sorrows with your comb
Tend to my petulance tend to my health
How long before we are home?

I keep searching for that other soldier
He is familiar and he is unknown
He is fighting to save his brother
He is fighting to find his way home

How long before we are home?
How long before we are home?

How long before we are home?
How long before we are home?
