As someone smacked me,
I started breathing,
Then I took a look around,
(Yeah I took a look around).

Dying strangers,
They surround me,
I stood there looking down,
Yes I did, stood the looking down.

One, two, ready, go.

I'm really not ready for this,
I'm not ready, not ready for this.

It's a war, it's a war,
And you better get used to it.
It's a war, it's a war,
And that's just the way it is.

It's a war,
It's a war.

Here we go

Four, three, two, one.

For your prison,
Called it high school,
Yeah that's some devastating shit,
(Yeah that's some devastating shit all right).

Mom's been drinkin,
And Dad keeps leaving,
I've seen him a' run, yes I did,
Yeah I've seen him a' run.

One, two, ready, go.

I'm really not ready for this,
I'm not ready, not ready for this.

It's a war, it's a war,
And you better get used to it.
It's a war, it's a war,
And that's just the way it is.

It's a war,
It's a war.

Go!

You get fooled by the flowers and tricked by the sun,
But you better hold on to whatever you love.
And don't you believe what you see is what you get,
And never forget, never forget.

It's a war, it's a war,
And you better get used to it.
It's a war, it's a war,
And that's just the way it is.

It's a war, outside my bedroom door,
It's a war, outside my bedroom door, let's go
