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 'cause they'll fight to use it
Got everything but you can just choose it
I want to be a puppet on a string

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

And I'm tired of all your friends
They're still at your door
And I won't, I better call you

So long my friend and adversary
But I will call you

Get dressed jump out of bed and do it best
Are you ok?
I've been out around this town
Everybody's been singing the same song for ten years

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

And they sacrifice their lives
In their land of all closed eyes
I've been saying we're beaten down, I won't say it again

So long, my end
The sorry embrace

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

I'm tired of all your friends
Knocking down your door
Get up in the morning, give it your all
So long my friend and adversary
I'll wait for you
