The Raconteurs – Broken Boy Soldier lyrics

I'm pulling down questions from my shelf
I'm asking forgiveness
I ain't asking nobody but myself
And I want you to know this
And I want you to know this
You're rifling through a box of toys
That were handed down to me
Just take out the ones you want and then
Give the rest to my family

I'm gonna go back to school today
But I'm dropping myself off
I'm throwing the childhood scene away
I'm through ripping myself off
I'm done ripping myself off

I'm child and man and child again
The toy broken boy soldier
I'm child and man then child again
The boy never gets older
The boy never gets older
The boy never gets older
The boy never gets older
The boy never gets older
Never gets older
The boy broken toy soldier
The boy...
The boy!
