Remember the times when we were kids
Playing war games in your yard
Everybody had to be a hero
and get one in the heart
Night would fall and we'd call a truce
And all go home

Years went by we were average guys
playing life by the rule of thumb
Till a man came on the TV
Talking 'bout war like he wanted one
He said "Everybody put your backs to the wall
till your numbers called"

You've gotta go and be a hero
