    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?
