Slip back out of whack at your best
It's a nightmare
So I'm joining the army

Know how folks back out, I still call
Will you wait for me now?

We got the right to live, fight to use it
Got everything if you can just choose it
I won't just be a puppet on a string

Don't go that way
I'll wait for you

And I'm tired of all your friends
Listening at your door
And I want what's better for you

So long my friend and adversary
But I wait for you

Get dressed jump out of bed into a vest
Are you ok?
I've been all around this town
Everybody's singing the same song for ten years

I'll wait for you
Will you wait for me too?

And they sacrifice their lives
And they lied about those odds
I've been saying a billion times, I won't say it again

So long, my adversary
And friend

Don't go that way
I'll wait for you

I'm tired of all your friends
Banging down your door
Get up in the morning, and yelling "no more"
So long my friend and adversary

I'll wait for you

    Someone who sees the the the lies that are told and the brainwashing that is done by soldiers who seemed to be trapped in the same mess caused by war trying to save those who can also see the truth and feeling the pain of those who don't.

    The escape of the norm within a society. The idea of being successful and different from what is known to be right to a certain people's. The song is centered around that idea
