"Over and out", she said
From a hospital bed
"For what it's worth
It doesn't hurt don't cry"
"Over and out", he said
With a.45 to his head
"The war has taken everything from me
It's all I see"

So...

Run for cover
As fast as you can
We're fighters, lovers, enemies, friends
And guns and knives apologize for leaving you tonight

Leaving you tonight

"Over and out", he sighed
"Seems I've run out of time
Please tell my wife I love her more than life itself"
"Over and out", she sang
As the telephone rang
"There's no pain, no answering, no more, no"
So

Run for cover
As fast as you can
We're fighters, lovers, enemies, friends
And guns and knives apologize for leaving you

Run for cover and you'll find us there
We'll take out the anguish, make it disappear
With hand grenades and napalm flames, I'm leaving you tonight

Let this candle burn 'til you get home
Never forget your face, never lose hope
Tonight

Run for cover as fast as you can
We're fighters, lovers, enemies, friends
And pens and knives apologize for leaving you

Run for cover and you'll find us there (over and out)
We'll take on the anger, make it disappear (over and out)
With razorblades we're softly serenading you
