Daryl Hall & John Oates – At Tension lyrics

I'd like to join the army
Don't want to join the war
I'd take my place in line hell
Never go awol

We keep on marching forward
And never will retreat
Don't let the enemy inside you
That's the beginning of defeat

All good soldiers stand to arms
All good soldiers try so hard
To follow orders never asking why

I'm standing at tension, at tension
I'm standing at tension
I'm standing at tension, at tension
I'm standing at tension
So ill at ease with you
Afraid to make a move

Now a shakey finger on the trigger
Ready aim to please
Now how can such a little bullet
Can drop big soldier to his knees

But there's no warning only waiting
When a strange love drops the bomb
All this fighting it can hurt you
But its the little wounds that do the harm

All good soldiers stand to arms
One good solider tries so hard
He follows orders never questioning why
Never questioning why

I'm standing at tension, at tension
I'm standing at tension
I'm standing at tension, at tension
Standing at tension
So ill at ease with you
Afraid to make a move yeah

All good soldiers stand to arms
All good soldiers try so hard
To follow orders never asking why
They never asking why

I'm standing at tension, at tension
I'm standing at tension
I'm standing at tension, at tension
I'm standing at tension
So ill at ease with you
Afraid to make a move

I'm standing at tension
I'm standing at tension
I'm standing at tension
...
