Well Papa go to bed now it's getting late
I'll be leaving in the morning from St. Mary's Gate
'Cause the darkness of this house has got the best of us
But they can't touch me now
They ain't gonna do to me

It's Independence Day
Just say goodbye it's Independence Day

We chose the words, and yeah, we drew the lines
I guess that we were just too much of the same kind
Well say goodbye it's Independence Day
So say goodbye it's Independence Day

And the highway she's deserted down to Breaker's Point
Leaving their friends, their homes

Nothing we can say can change anything now
And they see things in different ways

Papa now I know the things you wanted that you could not say
I swear I never meant to take those things awayWell Papa go to bed now it's getting late
I'll be leaving in the morning from St. Mary's Gate
'Cause the darkness of this house has got the best of us
But they can't touch me now
They ain't gonna do to me

It's Independence Day
Just say goodbye it's Independence Day

We chose the words, and yeah, we drew the lines
I guess that we were just too much of the same kind
Well say goodbye it's Independence Day
So say goodbye it's Independence Day

And the highway she's deserted down to Breaker's Point
Leaving their friends, their homes

Nothing we can say can change anything now
And they see things in different ways

Papa now I know the things you wanted that you could not say
I swear I never meant to take those things away
