Stand down son, start resting easy
You've done your service, i am proud to have you home and see you safe, it's so good
You look so strong in that picture on the mantle you sent your mom when you were gone
But you look scared now, hollow eyed

When are you coming
When are you coming back where you belong
I swear that it's safe here, there's nothing to fear at all
Come on back where you belong, the pressure releases if you just let down your guard

Everything rests on you
You know that feeling well, the ball is falling,
Falling, falling, so far from a close call
Your injuries aren't mortal wounds,
The only thing that's killing you is what you saw,
What you couldn't stop
But you're not the one i blame, it wasn't your mistake

You're safe now so come on back where you belong
I swear that it's safe here, there's nothing to fear at all
Come on back where you belong,
The pressure releases if you just let down your guard

It's the simple things dad, i'm not hurt, i'm not dead,
I just should be where my friends are lying
And i didn't hate those that i killed but they're all dead now
But i'm here alive with satellites and friday nights
And no one to judge me for the things that i've done and all
So how can i live with that?

Back where i belong
Take me back where i belong, you swear that it's safe here
There's nothing to fear at all
Take me back where i belong, the pressure releases
I just let down my guard
