    Tied my shoes
    kissed my wife
    waved the sun goodbye
    Next time I see his light
    will be under a desert sky
    When all else seems to fail
    in government we trust
    Shackles round our ankles
    as our bones begin to rust

    Asleep beneath the palm trees
    laid out in freedom's rest
    stretching as far as I can see
    trying so hard to forget
    about the landmine sitting next to me
    and the angel death
    He's been circling like a vulture
    hanging just above my head

    My heart still kicks
    My lungs they swell
    The oil drips
    as the bodies start to smell

    Death came graceful
    and stepped into the light
    he said, "Take my hand, son"
    but I just waved goodbye
    I've got to shoot through the sun again
    we're halfway home

    I turned 21 on Tuesday
    and took 15 shots of sand
    Dried out my mouth til I couldn't speak
    but it wasn't hard to stand
    The devil he just laughed
    sent his best regards and love
    calling me back home but lord he knows
    I was meant for up above

    Or maybe not
    it's hard to tell
    My eyes can't see
    if there's a bottom to the well

    Death be patient
    and take a step aside
    You must be mistaken
    it's just not my time
    I've got to shoot through the sun again
    we're halfway home

    Long live the free
    bathe in black gold

    Shoot through the sun again.
    We're halfway home. Show less
